Following a great start to February, ‘Boro lie in 15th place in the Skrill South with 30 points and find themselves 8 points off the relegation places.
A ‘Boro win on Saturday would see them rise to around 13th place depending on other results.
After losing winger Tyrone Berry to Cray Wanderers in mid-week, ‘Boro boss Spencer Day told gethampshire:
“It’s very unfortunate, Tyrone didn’t want to go and I didn’t want him to go, but with a baby on the way and Cray closer to his home he felt he had no choice. I totally get that and he goes with my full blessing.
“It’s a shame because Tyrone was settling back in really well, but it just goes to show where the club is it when Cray Wanderers, with all due respect to them, sitting ten points adrift of safety at the bottom of the league below us, can offer him four or five times more than we can. We just could not compete with them.”
Day is also on the verge of sealing a deal to bring back popular midfield ace Harry Lee on an initial month’s loan from Leyton Orient, and is hoping to include them in squad for Whitehawk on Saturday, where he will go head-to-head with club adversary and former manager, Steve King, who has been named the club’s new boss.
Whitehawk sit a dangerous two places above the relegation zone in 18th place. Of their 12 away fixtures so far this season, The Hawks have won 5; drawn 1 and lost 6. A win for Whitehawk could see climb one place to 17th, also depending on other results.
Former ‘Boro manager, Steve King, was named the club’s new boss on Monday, King took ‘Boro from the Southern Premier Division all the way to the 2010-11 Conference South play-off final.
One to watch: Danny Mills – 10 goals
The last time the two sides met was in the League, back in October, when ‘Boro secured a comfortable 2-0 win over The Hawks who ended the game with 10 men after Lewis Taylor was dismissed after 51 minutes for two bookable offences, Reece Connolly and Phil Page were the ‘Boro scorers on the day.
