Boss Clive Cook backs his Hythe Town squad to get a result at Cray Wanderers

By Steve Tervet

Clive Cook is confident Hythe can end Cray Wanderers’ unbeaten home record in Saturday’s showdown at Hayes Lane.

Cray have conceded the fewest goals in Bostik South (12) and they go into the game a point ahead of the Cannons in the race for promotion.

Hythe have only won one of their last five league games but Cook insists his players can get a result in Bromley.

He said: “I back my squad against anything that gets put in front of them. If we play how we can, it’ll be a great game.

“They’ve had a great spell. Tony Russell’s got them playing good football and they’re a good side – but so are we. It’s a great game to have.

“You’re there to have these games for a reason and I’m not shying away from it.
“Everyone is fit so if we lose, we’re not good enough.”

Mitchell Dickenson returns after serving a three-match ban for the red card he was shown in the 4-0 home defeat to Carshalton on November 18.

The final game of his suspension saw Hythe denied victory, and fourth place, by a 94th-minute goal for Hastings at Reachfields on Saturday.

Cook said: “We are still in a good position but we make things hard sometimes.

“We’re inconsistent and don’t concentrate. We switch off in crucial parts of the game.

“We missed the big man, Dicko, at the back but crucial decisions by officials are going against us as well.

“Hastings’ keeper wiped out our centre-forward, it was a red card all over and he booked him. Dicko completely won the ball (against Carshalton) and got sent off. It’s crazy.

“When you start piecing it all together, something’s got to give. We get booked, sent off, done for dissent and done for no respect but when is it going to stop?

“Something’s got to be done to help the management because you can’t not get frustrated with that. As soon as you do, you’re in trouble.”
