Late goals prove Mac’s title chasers will battle to the end

Kenny McCreadie honoured his side’s recent displays going into Saturday’s game at relegation-threatened Westfield.

The boss was elated with Hailsham’s ability to keep playing until the final whistle.

He said, “To be fair we have won our last two games in the 94th and 91st minutes respectively, so we’ve got the ability to keep going right to the end.

“We’re second in the league for a reason, because we don’t stop playing football.”

The manager was quick to highlight the sides’ last meeting, when Hailsham ran out 7-0 winners, but urged his side not to get complacent ahead of the weekend’s kick-off.

McCreadie warned, “This game is not a formality by any means, you just don’t know what you’re going to get in football, anything can happen on the day.

“If we play our best football and they play their best football, we should come through victorious.”

Hailsham have made no additions to their squad, but McCreadie feels they possess enough strength in depth to successfully head into the latter stages of the season.

“I think we have enough players to see us through.”

The Stringers will be without Alex Attril who played an influential role in last week’s victory at Little Common, but welcome back Midfielder Ben Billings who was absent for that game.
