Sam Denly is eyeing an improvement in Herne Bay’s home form after taking only one point out of nine in their last three games at Winch’s Field.

The Bay boss has seen them draw with Horsham and lose against Walton and Hersham and Redhill, since registering their last victory with a 4-0 success against Merstham at the beginning of last month.

He hopes to rectify things, starting against Tooting and Mitcham on Saturday.

Only three places and three points separate the two mid-table sides and Denly added: “We are inconsistent, that’s why we are, where we are. 

“We want to put in good performances at home but the important thing is to pick up wins.”

The two teams drew 0-0 in south London in early August.

Meanwhile, Denly says new signing George Benner may have to wait for his debut due to the consistent form of centre back pairing Connor Sanders and Joe Kennett.

Sanders returned to the side against Leatherhead last week after recovering from severe whiplash, sustained in a car crash, and both he and Kennett have impressed Denly.

He said: “Connor has done well for us this season and they have played well together as a pair but George is knocking at the door and will get his opportunity.”

Bay make their fourth successive trip to Surrey next Tuesday to face former leaders Walton Casuals.

Nathan Eastwood (suspension) returns against Tooting but Joe Nelder and Ben Brown both serve one-match bans.
