Hawks manager Lee Bradbury is looking forward to tomorrow’s National League clash with Maidstone United at Westleigh Park.


The gaffer is looking to make it three wins from their last four games against Harry Wheeler’s Stones side who themselves have been in a rich vein of form.


And with a big week ahead, Bradbury wants to continue to keep on the momentum built up over recent times.


“We’ve got two big home games coming up, obviously Maidstone tomorrow and then Dagenham on Tuesday.


Two big games, games we’re excited about, we’re on a good run at the moment and mentally and physically we’re feeling good, the boys had a really good night’s training last night and we’re excited and hoping to perform somewhere like we have done the last three games.”


And the Hawks boss believes that this week is the biggest week in the clubs’ season so far.


“I think it is because of the teams that we are playing. One’s just a point above us and ones just below us, so we could put daylight between us and the bottom four if we were to get two good results.


I’d like to get six points obviously, but four would be a good return. If we could win at home and get something away at Dagenham it would be a good four points for us, but it’s one step at the time.


At this moment in time we have a couple of injuries, which is good for us. Bradley Tarbuck’s ok and is available to play after coming off Tuesday, Ibra played 45 minutes on Tuesday as well so we’re slowly getting some back.”


Harry Wheeler joined Maidstone in September, and the form of the Stones has been turned in the right direction since then, with the gaffer full of praise for him.


“Since he (Wheeler) has gone in there, he has made some good signings, did a good job at Billericay and was head hunted for this role.


They’ve turned a bit of a corner recently, at about the same time as us and will be a good measure of where we are at, at this moment and hopefully we can come out on the positive side of the result.”
