Captain Stuart Lewis has warned careers are on the line as he fires up Maidstone for a relegation fight.

United have three games to survive in the National League, starting with AFC Fylde at home on Saturday. Lewis says there can be no repeat of Tuesday’s performance at Solihull and has called on his team-mates to work harder than ever.

He said: “We’ve got to stand up and be characters, individually and collectively. We can’t be shrinking violets – we have to be prepared for what’s coming.

“We need results and we’ve got to pull together as a team and maybe a few home truths need to be said because that’s important in football as well.

“But on the other hand we have to stay positive and attack these last three games. Our preparation has to be right, how we live, everything has to be right in the next two weeks because there’s livelihoods and careers on the line here and that’s how serious it is.

“None of us want a relegation on our CV because that’s not good enough.”
