If we turn up, we will get the three points, but unfortunately we don’t know what Faversham team will show up on the day at the moment, says Faversham Town assistant manager Nick Davis
FAVERSHAM TOWN assistant manager Nick Davis is searching for a consistent performance from his side when Burgess Hill Town visit Salters Lane tomorrow.
The Lilywhites are sitting in the bottom four in the Isthmian League South East Division table with 23 points from as many games.
Three Bridges are below them in the table with 17 points from 24 games, Ramsgate are in the bottom two with 14 points, while East Grinstead Town occupy the sole relegation berth with six points from 22 games.
“We have got a home game against Burgess Hill tomorrow, who have picked up recently especially away from home, so it will be another tough game,” said Davis.
“If we turn up, we will get the three points but unfortunately we don’t know what Faversham team will show up on the day at the moment.
“James Collins and I are trying to rectify this consistency going forward.”
Faversham Town went down to a 2-1 defeat to VCD Athletic on Tuesday night, which saw the return to action for Paul Hayes after coming off the bench for the final 15 minutes at Oakwood, although Tom Fitzgerald was sent-off six minutes before half-time.
Davis said: “We gave ourselves an uphill task away to VCD Athletic on Tuesday, having been on top and in control for the first 25 minutes or so and then we go down to 10 men for the remainder of the game, which in fairness we were not overly troubled defensively but the damage was already done and it certainly restricted us in an attacking sense.
“We can’t keep giving teams a head start and give ourselves too much to do and unfortunately teams are not having to work hard for their goals.
“The good news our injured lads are returning over the next week or so, which will make us stronger and it was good to see Paul Hayes come on for the last 15 minutes on Tuesday, who is so important to us as a team.”
Davis revealed there will be two new players in action tomorrow, subject to the paperwork going through.
“These new additions will add a little more quality to our side, which we feel we are lacking as we have been solid throughout and nobody has pulled us a part or overly stretched us,” he said.
“With 14 games to go we just want to try and win as many as possible, experiment to a certain degree and try a couple of things out and ultimately see what current players in the squad will be with us next season.”
Burgess Hill Town, meanwhile, are one place above Faversham Town in the league table, having collected 24 points from their 22 league outings.
