Faversham Town hoping to make life difficult for Ryman League Division 1 South title chasers Dulwich Hamlet

Faversham Town boss Ray Turner admits his side seem to have run out steam as the end of the season approaches.

Town go into Saturday’s game at title-chasers Dulwich Hamlet with just one win from nine games in Ryman League, Division 1 South and on the back of a 2-0 defeat to local rivals Whitstable Town.

"I know our form doesn’t look good at the moment and it appears we are drifting towards the end of the season," said Turner (pictured).

"But I think Saturday’s game is a good one for us because Dulwich will have to come out looking for a win and I want us to make it as difficult as possible for them."

The defeat by Whitstable, which saw manager Justin Luchford returning to Salters Lane for the first time since his controversial departure last March, was painful for Turner and his players and the Faversham boss admitted: "I feel like I have let the club down because local derbies are important to the fans."

With defender Nicky Humphrey coming through the Faversham game with no recurrence of his recent hamstring injury, Turner will have a full squad to select from this weekend against a Dulwich team whose title ambitions suffered a blow last weekend when they were beaten 2-0 at home by Whitehawk.
