Havant and Waterlooville manager Lee Bradbury admits his side is in a dog fight.


The Hawks lost 2-0 at the Gallagher Stadium yesterday in the National League to give Maidstone United their first home league win since August.


And after the disappointing result, the gaffer said that the players agreed to fight for each other between now and the final kick at home to Barnet on April 27.


Bradbury said: “I feel like we weren’t at the races and what a game not to do that.


“It’s so frustrating because we go from a couple of great performances against Leyton Orient and Wrexham to turning up today and the boys deep down probably felt they were going to get something.


“You get nothing unless you fight for it in this league. We dropped our standards a bit; our intensity and work rate and just our quality and we got caught with two sloppy goals.


“They were stubborn, and we went for it in the end but we probably ended up playing into their hands with too many long balls going forward and their centre halves cleared them up.”


The gaffer wants his players to fight between now and the end of the season to try and keep the Hawks in The National League and make sure that we have no regrets.


“We need to go now and think nine games to go between now and the end of the season, we are going to fight for everything.


“We have just promised each other in there, the players have, that we are gonna fight tooth and nail for every ball until the last ball is kicked to stay in this league.


“This is a great league and it shows that if you drop your standards, anyone can beat anyone.


“It’s something that we need to do better; consistency is something that is key and we haven’t provided that and that’s why we lost the game.”
