Hayling manager Lee Paul is eying a shock result against league leaders Poole Town to boost his side’s unlikely survival bid in the Wessex League premier division (7.45pm).

But the powerful Dorset side have only lost twice all season.

‘On paper it looks almost impossible for us to stay up but anything is possible,’ said Paul.

‘After beating Brockenhurst in midweek we are amazingly still in with a chance of escaping and four of our last five games are at home.’

Fareham start a busy week with a visit to Hamworthy United.

‘Hamworthy will be difficult because they are another side battling for a top-five finish,’ said Reds boss Matt Parr.

‘We are expecting a hard physical test.’

The visitors welcome back Dan Hayes and Bryn McKie.

Elsewhere, Moneyfields travel to Hamble ASSC looking to make amends after defeats at the hands of Brading Town and Alresford Town.

Petersfield entertain division one champions Downton at Love Lane.

In the Puma Engineering Hampshire Premier League, Paulsgrove visit AFC Stoneham, Fleetlands go to newly-crowned champions Liphook and the University of Portsmouth host Hamble Club at Furze Lane (all 6.15pm).
