Hythe Town boss Scott Porter says March is crucial to club's play-off chan
Hythe boss Scott Porter is
calling on his players to launch one big push towards the play-offs
asking them: "How much do you want to get there?"
The call comes as they prepare for
what could be a make-or-break March, with eight games to come in
the next month, starting with the visit of second bottom Walton
Casuals on Saturday followed by a trip to Burgess Hill on
Porter (pictured) said: "It’s a
question I have put to them in training this week, do we want it
enough? There are probably six sides claiming two places at the
moment and we want to be one of them.
"We are heading into the final
stage of the season and it’s time for us to come to the table.
"Dulwich and Maidstone are probably
battling it out for the title, Faversham keep grinding out results,
as are all the other teams around us."
Porter, meanwhile, is hoping for
good news about midfielder Nick Barnes who suffered a knee injury
in the 3-1 win against Corinthian-Casuals earlier this month.
He said: "Nick was injured after
falling awkwardly during the game and the swelling has only just
gone down. He is due to have a scan next week, when we will find
out more about the injury.
Visitors Casuals slipped up 4-1 at
home to Chipstead in midweek but have won on three out of their
last four trips, a winning run ended by a 4-0 loss at Leatherhead
Defender John Walker is another
injury doubt after being forced off at half-time against Merstham
last week with a knee injury.
