Eastbourne Borough have reignited the spark needed to give themselves an excellent chance of avoiding relegation, according to manager Tommy Widdrington.

Speaking after their 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Hampton and Richmond Borough, Widdrington said, “It was all about the result today. After four defeats you need something to spark your game, get that spark back in the mind and back in the body.

“We’ve now lost four and won four of our last eight games. That’s an average of one and a half points every match, which isn’t bad going.”

Of his goal scorers, Widdrington said, “Alex was aerially fantastic today. He and Ollie have a really solid partnership.

“It was a bit of a gamble bringing Charles in because he hadn’t been playing much football. I brought him on because I thought he would hurt Hampton, and he did.

“All the strikers have been playing their part and our first goal was one right off the training ground, which is nice to see.

“The Welling match did knock the stuffing out of us but the lads have reacted well and stayed level-headed. Today is another three points to add to our total and although there’s still a lot of football to be played, we’ve given ourselves an excellent chance of staying up.”
