Ray Turner is plotting to overturn title-chasing Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday to keep Faversham ahead of the pack in the race for Ryman League, Division 1 South promotion.

Town returned to form after successive defeats with a fine comeback from 2-0 down to hold promotion rivals Hythe on Saturday before beating Sittingbourne 3-0 in the Swale derby at Salters Lane on Monday.

With five games to go, Town are third, 11 points behind joint-leaders Maidstone and Dulwich, whom they face in their next two games.

Boss Turner (pictured) said: "If we could maybe get two or three points from the two then it would give us a real boost going into the last three games."

In the race for the top-five and play-offs, third-placed Town are seven points clear of sixth-placed Folkestone, although Leatherhead, in seventh, could go within a point of the Lilywhites if they win their two games in hand.

Turner added: "The good thing after the weekend is everyone is still chasing us and with the way that we’re playing I don’t see any reason why we can’t beat Dulwich.

"I learned a bit when we drew up there in October. We were 1-0 down and down to 10 men and I decided we were going to attack them.

"We got the equaliser and in the end nearly won it. We’ll be on the front foot this weekend."

Wayne Wilson begins a three-match ban and Lyndon Rowland is unavailable. Aiden Sherlock returns from suspension and James Peacock is nearing fitness following a long-term knee injury.
