Hawks boss Lee Bradbury is looking to turn draws in recent matches in victories when Barrow come to Westleigh Park in The National League tomorrow.


The game, which will also serve as a farewell to skipper Brian Stock, has huge significance with the Hawks now just one point and one place above the bottom four heading into the first Saturday fixture of the New Year.


And the gaffer feels that consistency is the key to gaining those extra points between now and the end of the season.


Bradbury said: “It’s the turn of the year and we have to turn some of those draws into wins.


“We’ve been playing ok, but in fits and starts really, we need that consistency to continue, I know I keep harping on about that but I really do think the consistency is the key to us picking up results.”


"Keeping our heads above water is mentally important for us."

A victory would be a welcome one for the Hawks following the Christmas period, where good runs from sides in and around us has seen the gap be cut to the solitary point.


“It’d be nice to keep that gap, and keep us out the bottom four; keeping our heads above water is mentally important for us.


“There might be times where we drop in and we might be above it by a few places, but its where you end up and not where you start and that’s the most important thing that we’re out of the bottom four at the final whistle of the final game.


“That’s our aim and it always has been. We knew it was going to be a tough season for us and we’re enjoying it.


“I think we’re competing really well, just switched off a few times and lost to some good goals recently, when you look at the one at Eastleigh on New Year’s Day they’re deciding factors in games.”


Tomorrow’s game is a start of a complicated run for the Hawks, with cup competitions a plenty, it’s sometimes hard to keep up who and when we’re playing.


“It’s quite a stop/start, if, but, sort of schedule. But what we will be is organised and looking forward to the games and we will try and win every game.”
