Jim Ward sets his Sittingbourne side a target of four points from games against Merstham and Whitstable

13 February 2013

Sittingbourne joint-boss Jim Ward wants a minimum of four points from the next two games as the Ryman League, Division 1 South play-off race hots up.

Bourne go to Merstham on Saturday and take on Whitstable in a rearranged home match on Tuesday.

Ward, pictured, said: “They’re two massive games for the club. If we have any aspirations of making the play-offs, we’ve got to be looking at a minimum of four points.

“Merstham were one of the best sides we’ve played this season but they’re struggling. Whitstable have picked up lately but they’re still down the bottom.”

Midfielder Nick Treadwell returns from suspension at Merstham and will replace Simon Pettit who serves a one-match ban.

Left-back Ashley Ulph could be fit after a knee injury but Bourne will make a late decision on top scorer Ryan Golding, who has been playing with a protective plaster on a broken hand.
