Whitehawk manager Jude Macdonald says his side’s form has been good, but he has still got complaints.

Hawks have only lost one of their last 17 games, leaving them third in the table and just four points of the leaders, Hastings in BetVictor Isthmian South East.

However, Macdonald (pictured) still has some complaints as it could have been even better for his side.

He said: “It’s been good but we have had a lot of games where we have drawn and could well have won.

“It seems silly to be complaining given the form we are in, our league position and the predicament we found ourselves in last year, but we have dropped a lot of points unnecessarily this season.”

Hawks have kept three clean sheets in their last four games having conceded nine goals in their previous six.

He said: “It is something we have been conscious of, especially since the turn of the year we have shipped a lot of goals.

“We had Jordan Gibbons in for one of those games, which really helped and we are hoping he will be available on Saturday.

“It is also being a case of being clear with the centre backs about their role and what we expect from them.

“Losing Kasper (Lopata) at the turn of the year was a big thing that we never really responded from.

“However, we have only conceded one goal from open play in our last six games with the goals we have been conceding coming from set pieces.”

Whitehawk host second bottom Ramsgate but, despite their opponents’ league position, Macdonald says his side cannot afford to underestimate them.

He said: “They got a good draw away at Whitstable last weekend, so we will have to be very wary of the threats they pose. They have made a couple of changes to their squad since Matt Longhurst has come in.”

Macdonald said Whitehawk are “in negotiations with a couple of players”.

Dave Martin will miss the next two games through suspension and Connor Tighe is a doubt due to illness.

Rhyle Ovenden has resumed training after an ankle injury.
