Hythe Town manager Scott Porter admits that playing four games in eight days is going to take it out of his threadbare squad.
Saturday’s 4-0 win at Corinthian Casuals was followed by a home game against the same opponents last night (Tuesday).
Hythe are straight back into action at Sittingbourne on Thursday before entertaining Worthing at Reachfields on Saturday.
It’s a punishing schedule, particularly given that Hythe only had 14 players available for the Casuals game last weekend.
Porter said: "It’s going to take its toll because I’ve got a small squad with some older heads in there. I’ve got to hope we stay injury-free.
"But the boys are full of beans and the morale in the side is good. Richard Quigley’s playing on Saturdays for Lydd (in the Kent Invicta League) but I can call on him for weekdays."
Two wins from three games before last night suggests Hythe have turned a corner after tasting victory only twice in their previous 12 outings.
But Porter said: "We haven’t cracked anything yet.
"We enjoyed the three points on Saturday but there’s a lot of hard work still to do if we want to get the right side of the table."
