Whitehawk Final Away Hurdle

Enfield Town embark on their final away trip of the regular season tomorrow knowing that four points from our remaining two fixtures will clinch the runners-up spot behind Hornchurch, which would represent a truly  remarkable achievement.

However we are potentially on dangerous territory with our opponents, Whitehawk, third in the league on current form behind ourselves and Billericay, albeit in mid-table.

With the original fixture at the end of March called off at the last minute because of the conditions, another long trip to Sussex within four days is perhaps the last thing we need as we assess who’se available and who isn’t after a gruelling schedule that has taken its toll, Dylan Adjei-Hersey the latest victim after suffering a broken nose at Hastings.

But at least we have already clinched a playoff spot and it’s now  about trying to secure that all-important home semifinal draw by finishing either second or third which is where we still are.

With Horsham, three points behind us, also playing tomorrow, we are in the unusual position of hoping our near-neighbours Cheshunt can do us a favour against the Hornets. Which is certainly not impossible given that the Ambers too desperately need points at the wrong end of the table.

“Having done what we set out to do and give ourselves a chance of being promoted we can’t relax as there are final league positions to think about,” said Gavin Macpherson.

“However, we’ve been hit hard with injuries and suspensions in the past week or so. That means we will have to look at these games carefully. It doesn’t change the fact that we will be trying hard to win both.”
