Folkestone are now in must-win territory as their play-off push hits Merstham on Saturday.
Neil Cugley’s side are four points behind their hosts and five outside the Bostik Premier top-five with four games left.
Win in Surrey and they’re still in the hunt but lose and the promotion dream will effectively be dead.
“We’re still there or thereabouts,” Cugley said.
“If we’re being realistic, the chances are slim but we’ll go for it. That’s all we can do.
"The problems we’ve had with injuries have made it a difficult season and I think Bognor (in 12th) are a bit the same as us.
“If we’re going to get there, we’ve got to win every game so let’s just go for it and see where we finish up.
“We’ve got four games left and they’re all quite good games.”
Merstham are also playing catch-up in the race for the play-offs, albeit they have less ground to make up.
“They’ve got to win and Haringey have got to win,” said Cugley, looking further ahead to the rest of Folkestone’s run-in.
“Margate’s good because it’s local and then Bognor might be in there themselves.
“We’re still patching up players to get them through games and they’re doing well for me.
“Two or three need a bit of treatment and we’re being very careful with them but they’re getting through the games.”
Right-back Josh Vincent returns at Merstham after suspension but left-back Nat Blanks is unavailable.
