JOHN Maggs has called on his Horsham side to prove their weekend loss to Aveley was just a blip in their recent good run.

The Hornets host Harrow Borough tonight, with two of the form teams in the Ryman Premier going head to head at Gorings Mead. Maggs plans to rest Billy Dunn and Mark Knee who have both struggled for fitness during the last week, while there is a slight question mark over Gary Charman, who complained of swelling to his face in the 1-0 loss at Aveley. That defeat was Horsham’s first in ten and followed four straight wins.

Harrow have not lost a game since November 6, an FA Cup exit at the hands of Chesterfield, and have scorec 13 goals in their last five games.

Maggs said: “I think we have got to look at Saturday as a bad day all round. It was not a good pitch but we should have dealt with it better than we did. It’s always a battle against Harrow and there will be no better game to bounce back in.

“We have to show that the other results were no fluke.”
