Rye United have a chance to put their weekend disappointment behind them as they return to action tonight (Tuesday).

The Quarterboys will be eager to atone for their 2-0 defeat at home to Chichester City when they welcome East Grinstead Town to The Salts. Kick-off is 7.30pm.

Although Gregg Berry headed an Olly Lockyer corner against the crossbar, Rye barely created a clearcut chance and conceded a poor goal in either half as they suffered their first home loss of the season against Chichester.

Rye, who sit just inside the top half with 11 points from seven matches, will be targeting a big improvement against a Grinstead side which somewhat surprisingly sits fourth-from-bottom with six points from seven games.
