Momentum was the keyword from Eastbourne United boss Paul Daubeney this week.

The Oval outfit’s fine form continued throughout the festive period as they recorded victories against Bexhill, Westfield and Seaford.

The three games saw them score 10 goals without conceding.

Strikers Peter Cooper and Simon Catt also continued their goal scoring form with both players on target against Westfield and both scoring two against Seaford.

Victory against Oakwood tomorrow could move them into fourth position as the teams above United are involved in cup fixtures.

The United manager said, “We have to keep this run going. We are playing well as a team, they look more confident and we are looking forward to each game.”

Despite missing the talents of the injured Mark Goodwin, Nick Barden, Paul Walsh and the absent Adam Brand and Josh Grimes, Daubeney is hoping for their 10th victory of the season.

“It’s one game at the time we can’t take nothing for granted but we are confident.”

Meanwhile Kenny McCreadie’s Hailsham Town make the short journey to Little Common tomorrow.

McCreadie’s men have fallen behind East Preston in the title race after dropping points recently against Littlehampton, Eastbourne United while their Monday fixture with Bexhill was postponed due a waterlogged pitch.

East Preston are 15 points clear at the top but second place Hailsham do have three games in hand on the league leaders
