Faversham Town boss Ray Turner focused on improving side's home form
by Alex Hoad
Faversham need to improve upon
their home form if they are to make history in Ryman League,
Division 1 South this season.
Town boss Ray Turner has targeted
an upturn in fortunes at the Shepherd Neame Stadium, where the
Lilywhites have recorded just one win in seven league games this
season and drawn blanks the last two times out.
Town will follow a dismal 2-0 loss
to Chipstead with the differing challenges set by the visits of
basement boys Walton Casuals on Saturday and promotion-chasing
Leatherhead on Tuesday night.
Turner said: "We have to improve on
our home form. We have two home games coming up and we will have a
shake-up and try some things.
"We have had a good start to the
season but it is definitely something I have to think about.
"A lot of teams have better records
away from home than at home – maybe it’s because teams come at them
more – but I’ll have a look at what we can do this week."
He added: "It’s a crazy league this
year, you just can’t predict some of the results, but the league
table is slowly starting to take shape.
"We are still very much in there
and you always want to push on as much as you can, but we have got
a small squad.
"We’re taking the club to places
it’s never been before, and we have to try not to let it slip too
much. If I could get us anywhere near those play-off places I think
that would be a fantastic achievement."
Forward Adrian Stone will have his
Achilles assessed at training on Thursday while under-18s
forward Kieran Oliver will join the squad.
