Hawks boss Lee Bradbury believes it is key to utilise his squad over the next few days ahead of tomorrow’s home National League clash against Bromley at Westleigh Park.


With key players starting to return from injury, most notably Wes Fogden, the gaffer feels we are in a position now to use the squad accordingly at an important stage of the season where games come thick and fast.


After battling draws against Hartlepool and Eastleigh respectively, the Hawks are in a good frame of mind going into tomorrow’s fixture.


Bradbury said: “After a good second half performance (against Eastleigh), it’s good to go in the game on the back of battling performances.


“It’s an important time of the year, with three games in six days, so there will be opportunities to utilise the squad so that’s something that I’ll be looking at and doing.”


And with the bottom of the table being so tight, a win could leapfrog us above tomorrow’s opponents, but with the gap just two points on the bottom four, picking up something for both sides is imperative.


“To be just behind Bromley after being beaten heavily up there is an achievement really, they’ve invested quite well and bought in some good players so to be able to be close to them is good.


“We can go above them with a win and that has to be our goal come 4:45 tomorrow.”


“The boys have took things on board well recently and hopefully that will continue.”

And with the congested fixture schedule, the gaffer is insistent that the use of the squad will be as key as at any other point in the season.


“It’s crazy the amount of games we have and the opposition have the opportunity to get there players in to massage, and talk about how they’re going to play.


“We haven’t got that luxury, my lads are still working and we have to take that rest and we talk about opposition on game day really and how we’re going to play.


“The boys have took things on board well recently and hopefully that will continue.”


Following the recent additions to the squad, the gaffer is happy with morale inside the camp.


“We’ve bought a few in recently and I think they’ve clicked well.


“Tyler Frost has come in and has done well, Chris Paul has come in and shown how good a player he is.


“All we can do (tomorrow) is be hard to beat, play at the same intensity that we did in the second half against Eastleigh for the whole game and if we do then I think we get something out the game.”
