Eastbourne Town are ‘rocking and rolling’ ahead of a week that sees them play three matches in seven days, starting with a trip to Chipstead on Saturday.

Then, on Tuesday night, Eastbourne have a third attempt at a clash with Godalming after the original fixture was abandoned following a floodlight failure and the rearranged match postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

To round off the week, Eastbourne face another home tie against struggling Burgess Hill Town on Friday night.

Boss Danny Bloor says, although it will be a challenge, it’s one they are ready and rearing to take on.

“After a long period of inactivity, it’s good to get back playing. The lads are really looking forward to this week and it’ll be a good test.

“We’ve got nothing to fear from any of these matches. We beat Chipstead when we played them at home, we were beating Godalming before the match was abandoned and Burgess Hill are below us in the table.”

Kai Bichard, having served his one match suspension, will be returning to the squad for Saturday’s meeting with Chipstead but Scott Kirkwood won’t be available until Tuesday’s match.

Following the return to fitness of Matt Percival, Bloor has a fully-fit team to select his three starting line-ups from.

“Some players might find it hard to complete all three matches, but we’ll assess the situation after each match to see if we need to rotate the team.

“Matt did really well when he came on as a substitute on Saturday but I don’t want to rush him or push him too hard. He will start one of these three matches.

“Other than that, we’re all rocking and rolling and ready to go.”
