Eastbourne Borough’s Simon Johnson expressed disappointment that their recent up-turn in form looks to have arrived too late.

The midfield play-maker scored in Borough’s 3-0 win over Bishop’s Storford last weekend - their third victory on the bounce - but they remain 10 points off the play-off places with just six games of the Vanarama South season left to play.

“It is a bit late but we are going well,” Johnson said.“We’ve got a good bit of morale going and it’s a shame that we have left it a bit too late to push the teams at the top.”

The play-offs are not mathematically out of the question for Borough and, while Johnson admits they might have to wait until next season, he urged his team mates to win every game from now until the end of the season, starting with Sutton United tomorrow.

“You never know where that might take us,” he added.

Johnson is yet to sign on for the next campaign himself but is set for talks with boss Tommy Widdrington, who has expressed his desire to see him stay.

He remains squarely focussed on tomorrow but gave the biggest hint that he might be set to stay by saying a a good run leaves them in good stead for next season.

Kick off: 3pm, Priory Lane.
