Scott Porter wants Hythe Town to make Reachfields a fortress
Scott Porter wants his Hythe Town side to take another step
to creating "Fortress Reachfields" when they host Crawley Down on
Hythe have only lost once at home since the first week of
October and Porter said: "Nobody likes coming to Reachfields at the
moment and that’s what we have got to try to do, to make it a bit
like a fortress.
"We’ve had some good results there lately, the atmosphere is
good and the crowd get behind us."
It will be Hythe’s first game for three weeks because of the bad
weather but Porter believes the break may have one positive
spin-off, saying: "In a way it may have done us a bit of good
because it just refreshes everyone. It’s just one of those things
and everyone is in the same boat."
Hythe will be without a game the following Saturday because
their scheduled opponents, Croydon Athletic, have folded but
secretary Martin Giles has rearranged a league game at Walton &
Hersham for Tuesday, February 28.
It means Hythe will only play two matches during February but
Porter believes his side’s positive mood will enable them to
overcome their current fixture problems.
He added: "We are in a good frame of mine. Everyone is raring to
start playing again and we just want to pick up where we left off
with our good run of form."
However, three Hythe players will again be kicking their heels
again this Saturday as skipper Dave Cook, Kieran Byrne and Craig
Thompson are all suspended.
