Horsham ‘five points from safety’

JOHN Maggs believes another five points should be enough to preserve Horsham’s Ryman Premier Division status for another year - and six would make it certain.

The Hornets go to Concord Rangers on Saturday without a league win since January, and Maggs believes a point a game during the run in should see them safe. They currently have a four point cushion over Aveley, who occupy the final relegation spot.

Skipper Ben Andrews serves the first of a two game suspension for the trip to play-off chasing Concord while the Hornets manager hopes gary Charman will have recovered from a back problem.

He said: “I think we need an average of a point a game, while getting six points will make absolutely sure.

“All the bottom six teams have tough games. The key for us will be the Croydon game on Easter Monday, I’m hoping to get something from that.”
