Lowestoft Town manager Jamie Godbold has urged his players to be up for the challenges of a busy month of action at the business end of the season.

Fresh from a 4-0 home victory that kept the winning run going last Saturday, The Trawlerboys remain in third in the Pitching In Isthmian League North division with it all still to play for.

A comfortable win over the Essex side at the Fosters Solicitors Community Stadium was sealed courtesy of a brace from Adam Hipperson and goals from Kyle Haylock and Jake Reed.

It means Lowestoft now have seven away league games to play, with four matches at home over the next seven weeks, as the push for promotion or a play off place intensifies.

The busy schedule starts with two away league games in the space of four days in the week ahead.

Lowestoft will head to Essex this Saturday to play a Coggeshall Town side who are improving despite their lowly 19th position.

An eagerly awaited trip to Felixstowe & Walton United for a clash between the sides in third and fourth then follows on Tuesday evening.

Of the week ahead, Godbold said: "I think Coggeshall is a completely different fixture to when we played them at home and won 4-0.

"They have a new manager, who has brought in new players and they have been really unfortunate with some of their results having lost by only one goal against Sudbury and Hashtag.

"So it will be a tough game, but our aim is to keep the momentum going and continue the winning run with 11 games left now.

"We then have another tough prospect at Felixstowe & Walton on Tuesday with both teams looking to cement their places in the play offs."

Louis McIntosh misses both games as he is away, but Harry Knights and Sam Nunn should return to the squad.
