HORSHAM boss John Maggs will tell his side not to undo the good work of the last two weeks when they travel to Aveley on Saturday.

The Hornets are one of the Ryman Premier Division’s form sides with four straight wins, and Maggs is eager not to slip up against a side struggling near the foot of the table.

Aveley appointed former Brentwood manager Carl Griffiths in November and have picked up two league wins since.

“We do not want to go to Aveley on the back of two really good results and throw that good work away,” Maggs stressed.

“I know it’s going to be a difficult game, they have a reasonably new manager and they are trying to improve.

“It would go against the grain if we were to slip up. We need to keep on taking on these sides and hope the rest of the league can come back to us a little.”

Horsham are sweating on the fitness of Mark Knee (leg) and Billy Dunn (hamstring), but they are certain to welcome back Gary Charman, Michael Hector, Jamie Cade and Paul Kennett.

“I have a lot of options,” Maggs added. “If I get them all, it will be the strongest squad I have had all season.”
