Havant & Waterlooville are aiming to find their goal touch on Saturday but must also be aware of the threat posted by ambitious National League visitors AFC Fylde.
In the first two matches of the season, Lee Bradbury’s team have been unable to find the back of the net. They were excellent against Boreham Wood on Tuesday night in the 0-0 draw at Westleigh Park and created good chances.
Paul Robinson, Andreas Robinson, Nicke Kabamba and Wes Fogden all had opportunities, but some excellent goalkeeping from The Wood’s loan recruit Ellery Balcombe contributed to denying the home side a deserved win. They will certainly need to be ready to take any chances that come their way on Saturday and must also be at their best again defensively to stop Fylde striker Danny Rowe, who is one of the most sought-after players in non-league football.
Boss Bradbury said: “It would be nice to get that goal on Saturday. They have got Danny Rowe in their ranks, who has been the top scorer in the last couple of years and a very good goalscorer, a really big threat.
“A lot of league clubs are looking at him so we have to keep him quiet on Saturday and at the other end do our bit.”
