Hawks Have Eyes For Top Spot In National League South

Lee Bradbury knows his Havant & Waterlooville side can atop the National League South should they win well tonight - and their goal record stacks up.

The Hawks are looking to make up for lost time. Their home game with Wealdstone was postponed on Saturday but with the weather improving, so it seems has their title hopes.

Draws for Dartford, Truro City and Hampton on Saturday paired with a loss for Chelmsford made it a good day for inactive Havant.

They face Oxford City at home tonight and a four-goal win will take them above the Darts into first place. The match has passed a pitch inspection.

“We have had issues in previous season where games have stack up and it’s cost us,” manager Bradbury said.

“So it’s not great when you get games off but I hope the weather stays the way it has been the last few days.

“We need to keep playing as we’re in good form. The lads just want to get out there.”

Bradbury is bored of discussing the club’s less-than convincing home results - but knows they are on fire away from Westleigh Park, one of the country’s best travellers.

“We have scored seven goals in our last three games,” he pointed out.

“We’ve got to make the most of the chance we have got and if we can beat Oxford we will sit joint top of the league.

“That would be a great achievement after coming up last year but there’s a hard night of work ahead of us yet.”
