Keep scrapping to survive

Farnborough V Hendon


James Gray has urged his Hendon players to keep fighting for everything in their battle against relegation from the Evo-Stik South Premier South ahead of a trip to Farnborough on Saturday.

With just four games to go this term, the Greens are currently five places and five points above the relegation zone.

The Silver Jubilee Park outfit face a difficult task on Saturday with a trip to a Boro side who still have an outside chance of making the playoffs.

But Hendon boss Gray feels being on the road this weekend may work in his side’s favour as they aim to collect what would be a valuable success,

He told the club website: “We seem to be better away from home this season, whether that’s because of the pitch or some other circumstance.

“When we’re away from home, we play with a little bit more freedom. We go to Farnborough with no fear, but we know what’s at stake.

“There are some big games coming up and next week is a vital game, but hopefully we can do a similar job to the one we did at Poole Town recently.

“I’m pleased that it’s still in our own hands and I’d rather be where we are than where some of the teams below us are.

“This league is very hard so we can’t be complacent and we have to keep working hard, keep fighting and scrapping for everything we get.”
