New faces on the way for Borough?

Eastbourne Borough boss Tommy Widdrington was hopeful of making two new signings ahead of tomorrow’s Vanarama South league clash with Wealdstone.

Widdrington has been working hard this week to bolster his first team squad to ensure a strong finish to the 2014-15 season.

Borough are 12th in the table, nine points off fifth placed Havant and Waterloovillle who currently occupy the final play-off spot.

Widdrington said, “The paperwork is not yet finalised but I’m confident these lads will be in place in time for Saturday.

“I felt we needed to strengthen and I’m sure once the supporters see these lads, they will see why I have worked hard to bring them in.”

Of Borough’s play-off chances, Widdrington added, “There are still plenty of points to play for.

“It’s important we are competitve from now until the end of the season. I’m convinced we can finish strongly. I believe in this squad and I’m sure we can go on a run.

“If we can do that, be consistent, the play-offs are still within reach.”

One of the few positives to emerge from Borough’s painful midweek Sussex Senior Cup exit at Lewes was the return of defender Adam Watts.

Watts came through the entire 120 minutes and is raring to go to face Wealdstone at Priory Lane.

Sam Beale also gained some much-needed minutes on the pitch after replacing Matt Aldred on 70 minutes.

Skipper Ian Simpemba will miss tomorrow’s game with suspension while Dean Sinclair will have a late fitness test after he sustained a gashed foot at Lewes.

Kick-off at Priory Lane is 3pm
