Whitstable Town boss Nicky Southall says a crucial two games in four days could get Town’s season back on track.

Southall admitted there had been some soul-searching after Saturday’s 2-0 loss at Eastbourne, their second straight loss, and said: "We have got to get back to that hunger and fight that we showed in my first couple of games."

The Oystermen lie fourth-bottom of Ryman League Division 1 South and host Ramsgate on Saturday and Merstham on Tuesday, having taken four points from Southall’s first two home games in charge.

He said: "We have got a huge two home games in the space of a few days which is an opportunity to get our season back on track.

"If we could get six points then we would jump up into that pack above us in the league and wouldn’t need to be looking over our shoulders so much."

Southall (pictured) hopes to include Kent League hot-shot James McDonald in his side, with the Woodstock player set to choose between a move to Whitstable or Chatham on Wednesday night.

Ex-Margate forward Luke Coleman, his former Cray team-mate Ebenezer Masade and 18-year-old centre-back Ollie Lee, released by Gillingham last week, could also be involved against the Rams.
