Hastings on saturday

We travel 54.4 miles tomorrow to The Pilot Field in Hastings. A journey that is likely to be quicker on the outward leg as it is all downhill.

Some folk still reminisce about a famous 2-1 victory there many moons ago. A 25 yard screamer from Lewis Taylor into the top corner was followed by a home equaliser. All square until the last minute when a long ball enticed their goalie to charge out of his box. Just as he was about to lob the red faced lad, Mark Tomkins generously offered him some advise " You are in the wrong position, keeper". If you look carefully near the entrance you may well be able to still see the tyre marks from Big Nev's speedy exit stage left the even Snaggerpuss would have been proud of.

Hastings have had a rollercoaster of a season. 3 managers so far. Their home record is similar to ours in a way. Only 3 wins to date. Their last league game was a 1-0 defeat away to Folkestone where they also missed a pen. I saw them play at Merstham a few weeks ago and they played some good stuff and were unlucky to lose 2-1 to a late goal when a clearance hit the ref and rebounded to Omar Folkes who scored with a first time shot.

We have not beaten Hastings yet this season having lost to them in the F A Cup and drawn in the league.
I predict a battle in Hastings but one where we need to be the conqueror.
