Injury-hit Eastbourne Town will draw on last season’s experience as they travel away to Bognor Regis looking for a win.

Eastbourne Town were the only team to beat Bognor away in the league last season, and manager Danny Bloor sees no reason why they can’t repeat the impressive feat.

“We won there last season, and were the only team to beat them there last season. So why not?”

Bloor also lamented the clubs injury problems at the present time with a list of key players out injured, including Luke Denton and Sam Crabb.

Adam Davidson also picked up an injury on Tuesday night during the 2-0 loss to Corinthian Casuals in the Ryman League cup.

“We just seem to be picking up injury after injury at the moment. We have up to 10 players out at the moment.

“On a positive note however, Steve Elliot and Steve May will return from suspension for the next game.”

Eastbourne would definitely take confidence from a win, especially after a late Burgess Hill comeback resigned the game to a 3-3 draw.

Town were unlucky to concede two goals in the space of six minutes against the home side last Saturday.

Bloor however, was content with the result and took the positives out of the performance.

“A point away from home is always a positive.”

Bognor Regis are currently placed third in the Ryman Division One South and have only lost once so far this season. It will take some of Town’s best football to go to Bognor and grab a result, especially with a squad so ravaged by injuries.

But with recent experience of beating The Rocks at Nyewood Lane, Town will be full of confidence going into tomorrow’s (Saturday) encounter.
