Ramsgate FC ready to host Bostik South leaders Lewes

By Steve Tervet

Lloyd Blackman expects a good contest when Ramsgate welcome leaders Lewes on Saturday.

Rams have won their last three home games and have only lost one league game at Southwood since September.

Lewes have been top of Bostik South for much of the season and their visit begins a run of tough fixtures for Blackman’s side.

He said: “We’ve then got Hastings away, Hythe, Greenwich and Sittingbourne, so it’s a busy month ahead against some decent sides.

“Lewes have only lost once but our home form is fairly decent so it should make for a good spectacle.

“They’ll be a tough side but if we can carry that on and improve our performance levels a little bit, individually and collectively, it should make for a good game.”

Ramsgate drew 1-1 at Chipstead on Saturday, Alfie Paxman’s early goal quickly cancelled out by Sam Bell for the home side.

Blackman said: “It was a fair result. We started brightly and caused them a few problems.

“In the second half of the first half, they got on the front foot and in the second half, both teams could have scored. I’m not too disappointed with that away from home.

“They’ve picked up some decent results lately and we didn’t perform great.”

Blackman finally has a fully-fit squad to pick from.

He said: “Aaron Millbank is chomping at the bit and I’m still having to pull in the reins with him.

“I know the severity of the injuries he’s had and because injuries curtailed my career fairly early, I’m keen to make sure he’s not rushed back.

“He’s not been with us since the start of the season but he’s now ready to be involved in first team action.”

Joe Kane, Liam Dickson and George Crimmen have been struggling with a virus but all three should be involved against Lewes.
