Town Primed For Dulwich Challenge

Thirty-seven played, five to go.

Gavin Macpherson will hope  his thoroughly deserved manager of the month award for March does not end up being the proverbial curse when we visit Dulwich Hamlet tomorrow in front of what will surely be by far the league’s biggest gate.

Gavin and his team have steered us into a 10-match unbeaten league run but Dulwich, one of the division’s big hitters and relegated from Step 2 at the end of last season, are still very much in with a shout of a playoff place if results go their way and will be a tough nut to crack on their own patch.

Despite losing both their Easter fixtures, the Hamlet were in strong form up that time, winning five of their previous seven as they bid for an immediate return to National League South under Hakan Hayrettin.

“It’s another in a long line of very tough games,” said Gavin as we prepare to make the trip to Champion Hill stadium.

“There are very few teams in the league as it stands who don’t have anything to play for and Dulwich are still very much in the mix.”

“Hakan has assembled a very experienced squad with plenty of quality in the ranks. We understand the task ahead but see it as quite simply as another step towards our aim no matter the opposition. The boys have worked hard all season and will continue to do so.”
