The Peacocks will be seeking to build on their fine Vanarama National League South win over Farnborough last weekend when they travel to Havant & Waterlooville tomorrow (16th December), ko 3.00pm.

Last Saturday’s victory was Town’s first in seven league matches and will have done their confidence no end of good as they look to reascend the table from their current 14th position. The trip to Havant gives them the opportunity to register back to back league wins for only the second time this season but they will be well aware of the Hawks’ recent upturn in fortunes which has seen them record two successive wins at Westleigh Park against Dover Athletic in a 4-3 thriller and then a 2-0 success over Hemel Hempstead Town on Wednesday evening. Those two victories have been rare highlights in an unhappy season so far for the Hampshire club who have only secured one other win which came against Yeovil Town at the end of August, with 16 defeats from 22 games played seeing them rooted to the bottom of the table for the majority of the campaign. A recent managerial change appears to have been a catalyst for improvement so the Peacocks will need to be on guard tomorrow at a ground which has seen them lose both their previous visits.

The Town squad will be minus Jay Foulston who has joined Yeovil Town on loan with a view to a permanent move while Nat Jarvis returns after serving his one game suspension. Head of Football Rob Dray said:” We have to build on the momentum from last week. We played extremely well and want to kick on from that performance against a Havant side who have won two on the bounce which will obviously give them confidence. Both boxes will be even more important and we need to replicate what we demonstrated last Saturday.”
