Havant & Waterlooville have score to settle after 4-0Â Bromley defeat
Lee Bradbury is demanding a better start from theÂ HawksÂ against Bromley for Saturday'sÂ Vanarama National League contest at Westleigh Park (3pm).
He is looking for his side to reproduce their second-half display against Eastleigh from the start.
In the derby the Hawks looked dead and buried trailing 2-0, and also missing a penalty.
Not for the first time this season, however, the hosts displayed a dogged refusal to be beaten.
They fought back to force a draw and might even have pulled off a remarkable win at the end.
Bradbury knows, however, his team can't afford to keep giving opponents a head start in games.
He said: '˜We will needÂ to step up from the start against Bromley because they are another experienced team.
'˜IndividualsÂ will need to do their jobs properly and be accountable.
'˜In our first meeting at Bromley they hit us a couple of times early on.
'˜They beat us 4-0 in the end but that was mainly because we were having to chase the game.
'˜It was a game where we actually played well, apart from our defending at set-pieces.
'˜That is an area we have to put right.
'˜If we do that then we will give ourselves every chance of winning the game.
'˜I am sure we will because the players have shown good ability to learn quickly.
'˜They showed in the second half on Boxing Day they are giving it all they have got.
'˜I can't ask for anymore than that.'
The Hawks go into the game with a double incentive to grab the win.
Apart from wanting to turn the tables on the Kent visitors there are another big three points at stake.
A win for Bradbury's side will make sure they don't fall into the relegation zone.
It will be a good boost for them to start 2019 above the bottom four positions.
Experienced defender Paul Robinson remains ruled out by a knee injury.
Key attacking midfielder Wes Fogden is back following a long absence through injury.
His appearance as a second-half substitute in the last game was a welcome sight.
He won the home side their penalty and immediately put the team on the front foot.
Keeping Fogden fit will be so important for the Hawks.
Bradbury added: '˜It was great to have Wes back because he is a player who leads by example.
'˜His enthusiasm is infectious throughout the group and he makes a big difference with his pace.'
