The Hawks host Hampton and Richmond in the Vanarama National League South and the gaffer realises the importance of this fixture. “It’s the biggest league fixture since I’ve been involved at this Football Club with potentially a big effect on things going forward. We’re in a really good position, 5 points ahead, same amount of games as them. As much as I want to win the game, I don’t want to lose the game either because the difference could be massive because their could be a massive swing either way.”


The Gaffer believes as much as he wants to win, a draw would be a positive result for the Hawks. “A draw would be a positive result. We got the win against Wealdstone but weren’t playing at our best. We need to up our game if we’re gonna win. They’re on a good run at the moment and a draw would be a decent result, I don’t say that often playing at home but saying that we will try and win the game so really it’s no different to any other week.”


“I think it will be a tight, cagey affair. I don’t think either side wants to lose the game. I think they will feel that they need to win more than we do because they want to try and catch us.”


The experienced faces in the Hawks side should stand us in good stead tomorrow. “I think when the going gets tough we can deal with it. I think I said to the players last year if we’re going to win the league then we’re going to have to win 5 of the last 6 which we did and got the 0-0 at Kingstonian to win the league. So they can do it. We know those experiences is fresh in their minds and so they can draw on it but we have good experienced players anyway. But we’re not counting our chickens because there’s still a long way to go.”
