Hawks boss Lee Bradbury admits that Havant's hopes of survival could hinge on tomorrow's game against Sutton United in The National League. 

The Hawks are currently seven points from safety with six games of the season remaining. However, a win tomorrow would mean the gap is cut to four points with just five games remaining, keeping the race still wide open. 

Havant face a Sutton United side, who under the stewardship of former boss Ian Baird, have won just one in their last nine National League matches. 

The gaffer knows that tomorrow's game is the biggest of the season so far. 

Bradbury said: "It's a massive game for us on the back of a loss away to Maidenhead which has given us a mountain to climb now. 

"But it's achieveable and we'll keep pushing to win every game between now and the end of the season. 

"We lacked a little bit of quality on Tuesday night as everyone knows. I thought nobody played good football being honest, the pitch was really bobbly and hard to play on. You have to play to your conditions, which we did but we didn't break them down, but you've got to give them credit they defended really well."

Despite a periously looking predicament for the Hawks, it is something that in the past two seasons which has been achieved with both Torquay United and last season Solihull Moors overcame huge defecits to secure survival, the Hawks will be hoping that it's a case of them being third team lucky. 

"It's achievable. The points are there to play for, we're still not relying on other people. If we win every game between now and the end of the season we will stay up, because it is unlikely that three teams down there are going to win all of their games. 

"We're going to try and do that and see where it takes us and we have notoriusly finished seasons strongly. The last two seasons to win leagues we've finished the season strongly so the pressure is on to do that again."
