Tomorrow we travel to Maidstone for what should be a really good game in front of a healthy crowd, writes Jon Underwood.
Our opponents are one of the favourites to be challenging for promotion under a vastly experienced and successful manager in John Still and with a squad who train full time. They had a slow start, losing their first two games, but then recovered well to pick up four points in the past week and they will no doubt look at this game as an opportunity to pick up their first home win of the season.
We go in to this game with a far more positive mindset however following Tuesday's much-improved performance, and the fact that our injury situation has improved massively in the past 7 days. The work-rate and intensity we showed against Weymouth has reset the standard for our lads and they will need to continue this tomorrow and in the coming weeks if we are to climb the table. Competition for places always helps, and we now have some really good options within the squad.
Josh Jackman completed his first full training session last night which was great to see. He will be in the squad tomorrow but it's likely he will need two more good training sessions under his belt next week before he can start to compete for a starting place.
Simon Dunn stepped up his training with physio Alex last night, having picked up a slight hamstring injury at Hungerford last week, and we expect him to return to full training next week and to come in to contention for next weekend.
Manny Williams returns today from a short break with his family and we are hoping to get him 90 minutes with a Step 3 side tomorrow before he rejoins the squad next week.
Squad: Jack Turner, Sean Fraser, Josh Jackman, George Wells, Sam Togwell, Guy Hollis, Lee Togwell, Matt Lench, Scott Davies, Max Worsfold, Joe Grant, Warren Harris, Dan Roberts, Ryan Bird, Ben Harris, Francis Amartey.
