Faversham Town boss Ray Turner doesn’t want plaudits for steering his side into the league’s top four – he wants his close-knit squad to set their sights even higher.

Town are a point behind third-placed Leatherhead and three ahead of Crawley Down, who are one place outside the play-offs having played a game more, and Turner (pictured) said: "We have got to keep going.

"I don’t want a pat on the back just because we’re in fourth, I want to look at third now and if we can get there, then second. I want to get as high up that table as possible.

"We have flown under the radar and long may it continue. Our challenge now is to try and open up a gap between us and sixth if we can."

Town made it two 1-0 wins in three days on Tuesday night, following Saturday’s win at Three Bridges with a triumph against Tooting.

The Lilywhites visit second-bottom Walton Casuals on Saturday before a trip to Walton & Hersham on Tuesday night.

The games are the first of eight league games in February that will test Town’s small squad.

Turner added: "The togetherness has been unbelievable. They all want to work hard for the team."
