Chatham Town boss Kevin Watson aiming to end mixed season on a high
Chatham boss Kevin Watson says he is
trying to convince himself the club’s Ryman League Division 1 North
season hasn’t petered out.
The Chats player-manager was looking
to build on the excellent 1-1 draw at Grays earlier this month, but
three successive defeats since, and only one goal in the process,
means it hasn’t happened.
Watson said: "I am fighting against
those thoughts (of the season petering out), and I still want to
end the season on a high."
Chatham travel to Redbridge on
Saturday. The East London side hit the headlines earlier this
season, with an impressive FA Cup run, including a 2-0 win over
Ebbsfleet in the fourth qualifying round, before going out, beaten
5-0 at League 2 side Crawley in early December.
It left them playing "catch-up" in the
league, and a four-game winning run in the past month saw them
climb into the top six, only just missing out on the play-offs.
Watson said: "Redbridge deserve a lot
of credit for doing so well after their FA Cup run, and putting
themselves in a great position."
The two teams drew 1-1 at Maidstone
Road in December, and Chatham head for East London in search of a
sixth away win of the season, with a chance of overhauling Waltham
Abbey to finish 14th.
