Scott Porter heads into the new year admitting reaching the Ryman League, Division 1 South play-offs again this season might be a step too far.
However, the Hythe Town boss is refusing to write off the campaign completely, admitting: “I am a fighter not a quitter and so are the players.
“It will be tough now to achieve what we did last season, there is too big a gap. We are just looking to win games, keep people fit and hungry and get a bit of consistency.
“We were on a bad run this time last season and then went 16 matches unbeaten, so we have been here before. As long as we stick together I am sure the results will start coming."
A win at Whitstable Town on Saturday ended a run of three successive defeats - and seven in the previous eight games - but Porter added:“We have been unlucky and are still a decent side on paper. I am sure we can push on.
“I am not giving up on the season, the league is weird this season, everybody is beating each other and if we can go on another run, who knows?
“We should have got something against Folkestone on Boxing Day but the Whitstable win has lifted everybody and I hope it kick starts things for us." 
Porter is aiming to add to his squad, with another defender and striker on his wanted list.
Hythe host Walton & Hersham on Saturday, the first of three successive home games.
