Tonbridge Angels will be hoping two of their Kent rivals can do them a favour this weekend as they bid to climb out of the Skrill South relegation zone.
Tommy Warrilow’s side can escape the bottom-three with a win over fifth-placed Weston-super-Mare at Longmead but they need results elsewhere to go their way.
Two of the clubs within their reach are at home to in-form Kent sides on Saturday, with Maidenhead entertaining Dover and Whitehawk taking on Ebbsfleet, who beat Angels 2-0 on Tuesday.
Boss Warrilow has seen his side pick up just one point from their last five games but he knows the relegation picture can change quickly.
He said: “You’ve just got to get on with it because it’s so tight down there. It’s not just us that’s in it, there’s probably about eight or nine sides wrapped up in it.
“We can’t feel sorry for ourselves. The games are coming too thick and too fast. Even if we win, we’re not going to go over the top. Three points would be big for us at the moment so we’ve got to try to get those three points and then build on that.”
Weston have only won one of their last seven games on the road but Tonbridge go into the fixture without Chris Piper and David Ijaha, who are both suspended.
