LEWES Football Club assisstant boss Danny Bloor is looking ahead to the challenge that faces his side when they host Dulwich Hamlet in the Ryman League on Saturday.

The Rooks currently sit 19th in the table, while Hamlet are seven points off the top in fourth position.

Despite the sizeable gap in league positions Bloor is confident his side can come away with a positive result and said: “It’s a game that everyone is really looking forward to.

“We treat these games no different than if we were playing a County League Division two side in the Senior Cup.

“We have people out watching their matches and do the same preparation for any opponent.

“All the players will be prepared for the challenge that they will face against Dulwich and I am sure we can pick up a good result.

“We have done our homework on them and know where they are strong and where we can cause them some problems.”

Saturday’s game will be the fourth time Lewes have played in a 15-day period over Christmas. It has been a successful time for the Rooks as they have secured a victory over Bognor and a draw against Harrow.

Bloor has been deligthed with recent results and feels his team can now kick on for the remainder of the season.

He said: “We did not get off to the best of starts this season and find ourselves near the bottom for that reason.

“But now we have managed to assemble a really good squad of players and I think in recent matches the results have reflected that. “We got a really good victory against Bognor and a good point at Harrow which has given us some good momentum.

“The Christmas period is always a busy programme and the form usually hinges on the result you get in the first game of the period. Fortunately we managed to secure a good point at Harrow and then a victory so hopefully we can keep that good run going.

“It’s just a case of keeping up the good form now.”
