Herne Bay joint-boss John Embery wants to keep the momentum going

Herne Bay joint-boss John Embery wants his side to keep the momentum going after three wins in their last four matches.

Bay’s run of good results has moved them up to 15th in the table but they are pretty much stranded in the middle of Bostik South.

They are 37 points above the relegation place and 19 points off the play-offs but this will not stop the motivation of his team, according to Embery.

The joint-boss said: “We want to keep the momentum going. “We want to win every game and it is as simple as that. We want to get into good habits of winning and approaching every game with the right attitude.

“We are always thinking forward to next season and you always have an eye on things but at the moment we want to do the best we can.”

Bay enjoyed a 3-1 win at home to Ramsgate on Saturday with goals coming from Jake Embery, Danny Rumbol and Junior efosa Aikhionbare.

Ramsgate had two players sent off during the game and Embery said it was a very physical game.

He said: “It was a good result. We played well and worked hard.

“It was always going to be feisty and we competed physically and technically.

“The second sending off was a straight red and was a bad tackle. If he hits him properly it could have been a leg break and the referee had no choice but to send him off.

“It was always going to be an awkward game as form goes out of the window for local derbies and we were aware of that.

“Sam McCallum made his first start for us and we were impressed with how he played.”

Bay travel to East Grinstead Town on Saturday, who are fourth from bottom.

Embery said his players will be confident going into the game of picking up another win.

He added: “They have had a good run and picked up some points.

“The players will be full of confidence and with the right attitude. If we keep working hard we will go well.

“We have a real chance but it is up to us to have the right frame of mind.”
