Manager Craig McAllister has told his Gosport Borough troops nothing less than a win will do against bottom-of-the-league Chesham United at Privett Park.

After their disappointing FA Trophy exit at the hands of AFC Totton this is a key game.

Borough need to get a victory and they are at home.

However, they can’t take anything for granted with Chesham gradually improving after an awful start to the season.

Borough boss McAllister is determined to lead his side to a welcome win on Saturday (3pm).

He said: ‘Getting back to league action and getting three points is of the utmost importance to push us towards the play-offs.

‘A new management team has been put in at Chesham and it looks like they have turned a corner. 

‘So the game will be as tough as any in the league.

‘After last week's FA Trophy defeat, when we missed a great opportunity to progress in the competition, we must take positives from the way we played.

‘Our full focus is now on the league and we must start climbing the table. 

‘Home form in the league has been good and we must build on this. 

‘Showing consistency will be the key.’

Borough goalkeeper Mark Childs is still two to three weeks away from fitness and defender Lucas McCartney is due to have a scan on his knee.
