LEWES Football Club assisstant coach Danny Bloor is hoping his side can pick up a vital win at Harrow Borough on Saturday.

The Rocks go into the game in 20th position in the Ryman League table and their opponents are level on points and just a place below.

Bloor knows the importance of picking up all three points in this fixture and said: “Saturday is going to be a very big game for both sides.

“We go into the game level on points with them and just one position different in the table.

“This will be a six-pointer with both teams knowing that a win for them will not only mean three points for yourself but you have also taken points away from a team near you at the bottom.

“Harrow is never an easy place to go but we will go there and try to come away with victory.

“We always go into every game looking to win and Saturday will be no different.”

Lewes have been on a good run in the Ryman League of late and have not tasted defeat since a 3-0 loss at Enfield Town in October.

Saturday’s game at Harrow sees them kick-off a tricky run as they face five games in 17 days over a busy Christmas period. But Bloor feels that his side can us the busy run as an advantage.

He added: “We have been on a really good run in the league over the past couple of months.

“To suffer just one defeat in six games is a good achievement and is definitely something that we will be looking to build on over Christmas.

“The Christmas period can go one of two ways for teams as they either get a good run or lose their first game and then struggle in the weeks after.

“So I am hoping that we can kick-off the Christmas period with a win and then move on from there.

“This is our last game before Christmas so it is important we win not just for the players but for the fans who continue to follow us throughout the season.”
