Faversham boss Ray Turner seeks maximum points to sneak in Ryman League Division 1 South play-offs

Faversham boss Ray Turner has set his sights on five straight wins to finish the season and reignite their feint hopes of a play-off spot.

Turner admitted it has been a “frustrating period” for the club as they have fallen three places and 10 points adrift of the all-important final play-off spot in Ryman League, Division 1 South.

However, he says claiming 15 points in the season run-in is all he’s thinking about and believes it might even prove enough to sneak the hotly-contested fifth-place.

He said: “We have fallen away in recent weeks a little bit but it’s not impossible.

“We need to win all our games and even then that might not be enough but that has to be our target.”

The quest begins at home to struggling Walton & Hersham on Saturday, while seventh-placed Burgess Hill Town visit Salters Lane on Wednesday for a huge clash.

Turner said: “It would be good to finish strongly at home and reward the fans with some good results."

He also hinted changes are on the way irrespective of Town’s play-off fate.

Striker Brendon Cass will miss both games through suspension but Town have received a boost as Michael Jenner returned to training after suffering a broken leg in October.
