Hares need a home victory

HARES boss Paul Crosbie is desperate for his side to produce their best form at the GER starting with Saturday’s visit of Braintree Reserves in the Thurlow Nunn Division One.

March have taken just four points from their first four home league games, while on the road they have won three and drawn one of their five games.

Crosbie said: “I think we have now got a squad that can do well in this league, but we now need start producing at home. We have got really good results away from home, but it takes the shine off them when you are dropping points at home.

“We face Braintree this Saturday and have already beaten them at their place this season so we know what is required. They will be desperate to avenge that defeat, but we owe our fans a good home win.

“We have just played five games in 14 days and after a midweek break we then face three games in seven days so it is important we rotate the squad a little. Some players may not like it but it has to be done otherwise some players will drift away and it is important we keep the squad together.”

Adam Sutton and Sam Darlow missed the trip to Brightlingsea with injury, but Crosbie is very hopeful they will be fine for Saturday. Goalkeeper Marc Hipwell will also be back after a holiday.

After the game against fourth placed Braintree, March then take on the league leaders Cambridge University Press next Tuesday at the GER.

“They are both big games for us but if we can produce our best we are capable of getting good results from both games,” added Crosbie.
