Fareham Town can do relegation-threatened Hayling United a huge favour by defeating fellow strugglers New Milton Town at Cams Alders tomorrow (3pm).

The visitors sit second from bottom of the premier division – two points behind the Humbugs but with a game in hand.

A Fareham win would leave Hayling in the driving seat when they host the New Forest side in the final game of the season next weekend.

Reds manager Matt Parr left the Humbugs to take over at Cams Alders so feels he owes his former club a favour.

‘We will be doing everything we can to help our neighbours,’ said Parr.

‘After winning at second-placed Bemerton last week, I don’t envisage many changes.

‘We will be putting out our strongest side, with some players still looking to make sure they are part of our plans for next season.’

Fareham welcome back Rob Tambling and Ash Tattersall after a virus kept them out, while Dave Birmingham is free of work commitments.

Fareham: Douglas, Martin, Jones, Lewis, Doswell, Boud, Stevens, Hibberd, Burt, Cuthbert, Lindsey, Thompson, Tambling, Tattersall, Birmingham D, Redman.

n Horndean can travel to Downton in a relaxed manner after ensuring their top-flight status with a 3-0 win over Fawley last weekend.

‘Now we are safe, we can go out and enjoy our last couple of games,’ said manager Dave Carter.

‘We have been playing well and big striker Chemal Fenelon has made a big difference for us.’

n Two in-form sides meet at Hurn Bridge as Moneyfields travel to take on Christchurch (3pm).

The home side have won seven of their past eight games – the other a draw against champions Winchester City – while Miles Rutherford’s side have been beaten only once in 19 league games.

Moneyfields are two points ahead of Christchurch, and with both teams harbouring top-three ambitions, it should prove a keen, tasty affair.
