Lowestoft Town will be looking to build on a confidence-boosting win when they head to Harrow Borough on Thursday night.

The Blues began a run of three games this week with a vital 2-1 home win over Hendon on Tuesday.

It ended a disastrous run of six defeats and two draws in their last eight, but almost as important was the result at Burgess Hill Town, beaten 4-2 at home by Enfield.

It means Dale Brooks’ Blues are four points clear of Burgess Hill, with a game in hand, and the same clear of bottom side Tooting & Mitcham United, over whom they have two games in hand – and only one side will be relegated.

While Lowestoft make the trip to Harrow, Burgess Hill host Leatherhead, so it another massive night for the Trawlerboys and their bid for Premier survival. With only a few fixtures remaining every point is valuable, but a positive result tonight for Lowestoft would go a long way to ensuring their survival.
