Tonbridge’s bid to avoid relegation from the Ryman League, Premier Division is gathering momentum after a second win in three games last Saturday.

Boss Steve McKimm’s side extended their unbeaten run to three games with a 3-0 win over struggling Witham Town at Longmead.

A Billy Medlock double following the opener from Marvin Williams secured the three points against the third-bottom side that saw the home side move two places up to 16th.

Angels, however, are only three points clear of the drop zone but they do have a superior
goal difference. McKimm isn’t about to rely on that with just two games to go, starting with Saturday's trip to Billericay.

He knows there is no room for complacency, despite his team picking up seven points out of possible nine.

McKimm said: “Of course it was great to win and do it with a second clean sheet in the three games but we are not safe yet.

“We can’t afford to think the job is over and done with – we need a point at least and then I’d like to think that we’ll be all right. And to do that, we need to keep this momentum going until the end.

“We don’t want to be looking over our shoulders and wondering what’s happening elsewhere. We need to keep what we need to do in perspective.”
