Sam Denly is refusing to take anything for granted despite Herne Bay achieving the 50-point mark which should ensure their Ryman League, Division 1 South status for next season.

Bay lost 3-2 at play-off contenders Burgess Hill on Wednesday, conceding an 87th minute winner after battling back to level with two goals in eight minutes.

Sam Hasler drove in the first and  Jamie Turner slotted home the second to give Bay hope after trailing 2-0 in the opening 17 minutes.

The defeat followed two important wins in the space of three days against Crawley Down Gatwick and play-off contenders Leatherhead.

The latter came at a price with defender Connor Sanders ruled out for the season with a hamstring injury and Stuart King (knee) and Nathan Eastwood (back), both nursing knocks.

Denly said: "Kingy is suffering with a recurring knee problem, while Connor and Calum McGeehan (knee) won't play again this season."

Bay host Sittingbourne on Saturday and Hythe next Tuesday before facing new champions Peacehaven two days later.

Denly added: I am pleased to get to the 50-point mark, and we would be unlucky to go down with that.

“It’s a hard run-in for us, with a lot of games in the space of a few days. The boys are giving their all but I still want to see a bit more grit and win games ugly.”

Ben Brown misses the Sittingbourne and Hythe games after 10 cautions, while younger brother Harry sits out three matches, following his sending off against Corinthian-Casuals.
