Folkestone Invicta visit play-off rivals Walton Casuals on Saturday and manager Neil Cugley wants to extend their run of four-straight wins in Ryman League Division 1 South.

Saturday's visit of Herne Bay and the New Year's Day game with Ramsgate at the Fullicks Stadium were both postponed and Cugley said: “We’re looking forward to Saturday. Hopefully, it will be on.

“It’s not the most picturesque ground but it’s quite a nice pitch. We’ll be able to get ball down. It suits us. 

“We should have beaten them easily at home (a 1-0 defeat in August). Their manager said we should have been 4-0 up by half-time. It was one of those days when Stuart King just couldn’t score for all the chances he had.

“We want to keep our run going and it would be good to have a game to focus on.”

Cugley allayed any concerns about a potential 10-day break before the game, saying: “We gave them a week off before (the 8-0 win against) Crawley Down and it didn’t do them any harm, so we should be all right.”

Michael Yianni had minor knee surgery last Friday (December 27) but could return by mid-January, while Cugley has lodged a seven-day approach for a forward, also playing in Division 1 South, with higher-division experience.

Cugley said: “We have the approach in but we’ll have to wait and see what happens and even whether the club can pursue it with things the way they are off the field.

“It’s someone that would give us more pace going forward. I like our goals-for column, it’s one of the best. I like fast, attacking football and we’ve got back to that."
