Faversham Town manager Ray Turner has no fear about daunting run of fixtures which will decide promotion fate
Ray Turner says he is not
daunted by Faversham Town's run-in which will decide their Ryman
League, Division 1 South promotion fate.
With eight games to go, Town
sit third with a seven-point lead in the race for a top-five finish
and the play-off place it provides.
However, the Lilywhites still
have to face seven of the top 10 and ever-improving Merstham before
the end of the campaign.
Boss Turner said: "We have
generally fared better against the top teams and I have no fear
about any of the teams we have left to play.
"It’s come down to an
eight-game season over the next six weeks now. The sides we have
got to play are all good sides but that’s how I want it.
"We always perform better
against the top teams. We are mentally prepared.
"I’d much rather be going
into games knowing the sides will be going for it against us, with
something to play for, rather than playing teams for whom there is
nothing on the game.
"I’d rather be facing the
top-half teams than those fighting at the bottom. There is pressure
but it’s a different type of tension with games against the top
teams, whereas those teams down there are fighting and scrapping
for every point."
Turner’s side host free-scoring Worthing on Saturday but
will be without suspended Aiden Sherlock and Luke Harvey (work
commitments) while defender James Peacock could miss the rest of
the season as he recovers from knee ligament damage.
