Whitehawk have been urged to get themselves organised for two games in three days.

But they must do so without the playing services of Ross Flitney, who has been banned for both matches.

The former Eastleigh goalkeeper misses today’s National League south game against East Thurrock due to the red card shown after last Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Stourbridge.

A two-game ban also rules him out of Monday’s replay in the West Midlands when a home tie against Northampton Town will be at stake.

Flitney was at training on Thursday in a coaching role along with Adri Munoz and Lucas Covolan, who are now competing for a start.

But Hawks boss Richard Hill has more to think about than selection between the sticks ahead of the two games.

He is concerned how his well-organised side lost their shape in a 4-2 home defeat by Truro on Tuesday.

Hill told The Argus: “There’s no point making excuses. We didn’t do the basics well enough. For the first time since I have been here, we looked quite disorganised.

“Organisation is something we work on at every training session.

“When you are full-time you can even use a cool-down session as a chance to remind players how you want to be defensively.

“We get an hour-and-half in the evening and pretty much every session is a reminder session.

“We missed a couple of half chances early on and we hit the bar but you can’t sulk when those don’t go in.”

Hill hopes a first home defeat since he started to assemble his team will bring a positive reaction.

He said: “You hope something like that might bring the players back into line.

“When they keep winning every week, they can start thinking it’s easy.

“It might be a blessing in disguise, a little reminder to everyone we are not as good as we think we are.

“So far we have done okay because we have done the things we have talked about on the training ground.”

Hill brought back Sergio Torres and Marvin Hamilton on Tuesday after injury lay-offs and they are in contention for today’s game.

Adri and Covolan both had stints in goal early in the season before the latter went on loan to Lewes when Flitney signed. The three were due to work together last night.

Hill said: “Ross is actually a very good goalkeeping coach.”
