Faversham Town manager Ray Turner braced for a busy December
Faversham manager Ray Turner is hoping
that his side see a lot more action in December than they have done
Last Saturday’s postponement at Herne
Bay meant that the Lilywhites played just three matches in
November, with the inevitable knock-on effect that they are now
facing a hectic schedule of eight games in December.
Turner (pictured) said: "It’s not an
ideal situation because it means we have fallen a little bit behind
in our league programme again.
"Also, when you have a gap like we’ve
had, you are never quite sure what form you are in and what sort of
condition the players are in."
Turner, however, can draw
encouragement from the fact that, despite their recent inactivity,
Faversham are still in touch with the play-off positions and now
have the chance to bolster their challenge with three home matches
in a row, starting with Chipstead’s visit on Saturday.
They then face Walton Casuals
(December 8) and Leatherhead (December 11) at home, with all three
sides in the bottom half of the table.
Turner added: "We need to be really
positive in these next three matches and make the most of our
opportunity to push on. The league table is taking a bit of shape
now with the top four, Dulwich, Maidstone, Hythe and Crawley Down
all starting to show some consistency."
Apart from reserve keeper Dan Ellis,
sidelined by a back injury, Turner has a full squad to pick
