Faversham Town are gatecrashing the Ryman League Division 1 South title race.
While Maidstone United and Dulwich Hamlet have attracted plenty of headlines at the top of the table, Town have crept to within three points of the summit.
Ray Turner’s side have stayed under the radar in recent weeks and the Faversham manager insists his side will not give the favourites an easy ride.
Turner (pictured) said: "I don’t think people are taking a lot of notice of us but I’d love to be a nuisance factor for as long as possible and even break in between Dulwich and Maidstone.
"The title is in Maidstone and Dulwich’s hands. There’s huge expectation on Maidstone to lift the title.
"For us, I want the boys to not regret anything and take their opportunities as they come."
Maidstone lead Dulwich by two points but the south London side have three games in hand.
Faversham, a further point back, visit Chipstead this weekend but Turner expects to be without James Peacock after the defender injured his knee against Leatherhead in midweek. Aidan Sherlock is also unavailable for the trip to Surrey.
