Nicky Southall hopes Whitstable can build on their good form and finish their stop-start campaign on a high.
The Oystermen had high hopes going into the Ryman League Division 1 South season but have spent just a single week in the top-10 all campaign and been in the bottom four since October.
However, after four points from two home games, followed by Saturday’s 2-1 win at Walton & Hersham, Town are only three points behind 15th-placed Herne Bay, with Tuesday night’s postponed visit of Merstham a missed opportunity for Southall (pictured).
He said: "I was frustrated the game was off. We want to build some momentum and Merstham have not been in the best of form.
"It’s important that we continue getting ourselves up the table. If you can put some wins together, then it claws you up there. Seven points from nine had done that for us, it’s a start but hopefully we can continue that in the next few games."
Southall added: "We’ve not set any targets. We just want to win as many games as we can and finish the season strongly."
The Oystermen hope that good feeling will attract fans to games at The Belmont, starting with the visit of Tooting & Mitcham on Saturday.
Southall said: "We are trying to take the club forward but need to get the fans back. We need solutions. We are coming up with ideas."
