Boss aiming to get players match time.
Following last week's tough test against West Ham, the U's continue their pre-season build-up with games against Ryman League opposition.
And the U's manager is likely to take his senior players to both matches over the course of the next two days.
That will allow him to give as many players as possible full stints on the pitch, with the season now three weeks away.
The Maldon & Tiptree game kicks off at 7.45pm on Friday evening, whilst the Brentwood game is a 2pm kick-off.
Those fans attending the Maldon & Tiptree game will have to pay £5 for adults and £3 for concessions and U16s.
We'll have admission prices for both games for you when we get them.
