Havant & Waterlooville make their long-awaited comeback as they welcome Dartford to Westleigh Park on Saturday in the National League play-offs semi finals. 

This weekend marks a day that every Havant fan has desperately wanted to happen since returning to the National League South last season. 

Saturday is a huge opportunity for the Club to book their place in the play-off finals, and although no fans will be able to attend the game in person, there is no doubt the side will be supported in great fashion. 

Paul Doswell’s side, who are expected to come into the game injury free will be ready to start where they left off, after an incredible season prior to the Coronavirus postponement saw them perched in second place. 

After an intense Promote2 campaign, the playoffs were granted permission to proceed which could see The Hawks return to the heights of the top tier of non-league football. 

The two sides only matched up against each other once this season due to the second game being cancelled. If the game between the two is anything to go by, it’s set up to be another intense match like back in August, where the sides could not be separated as it ended in a 1-1 draw at Dartford’s Princes Park Stadium. 

Dartford took the lead on the day late on in the first half through Adam Cunnington, but that goal was cancelled out in the second period of play through Jonah Ayunga who went on to show his goal scoring talents throughout the rest of the season. 

The Hawks continued to pile on the pressure but it was not meant to be for Doswell’s men as winger Roarie Deacon hit the post as the game was coming to an end. 

Despite not being allowed into the ground, all Hawks fans will be able to experience every kick as it happens through BT Sport’s pay per view package with all the details on the Club’s official website. 

You can also make sure you keep up with all the match day build up and game day information through our social media pages on Instagram and Twitter. 

No matter where you are watching, make sure you get behind the side and show your support for The Hawks as they attempt to get back into the National League.
