Town are Southbound again this weekend when the make their way to sunny Whitehawk on the south coast. Town need a win to keep in touch with the play off action, while Whitehawk are currently in a battle for Premier Division survival. No quarter will be expected or given in this one.
Whitehawk are on a roll at the moment with four wins on the spin dragging them away from the foot of the table and what looked like a certain drop not so long ago. They have turned their fortunes round though, recently taking points from all their main opponents in the battle for league survival. The best will be their recent derby win over eight placed Lewes, showing they can also do the business against teams in the top half of the table.
Town have added further to the defence with the signing of Barnet's Joe Payne who introduced himself to the Town faithful scoring a wonder goal from the halfway line against Town in a Middlesex Cup Tie. There will be hopes he can repeat that feat, but this time in Town's favour. If they get the win, Town could go into the top five depending on results elsewhere. A run of wins could make a huge boost to the season as Whitehawk have shown. But this is the last game against a team in the bottom half of the table for a while. If Town are going to put a run together it will be a hard earned one over the coming weeks. All the more reason to make certain of all three points this weekend if possible.
