Hugo Langton is hoping Lewes’ point against Bowers and Pitsea on Tuesday could kick start their season.

The Rooks picked up their first reward of the season in their 1-1 draw against top of the table Bowers, after four straight defeats.

They host Margate tomorrow afternoon (3pm) and Langton is hoping the result against Bowers could turn their season around.

He said: “I hope so because the structure that we gave the players was very precise.

“We are probably going to do something a little different against Margate because the other night we were away from home against top of the table.

“Our out-of-possession shape was outstanding and that is what it had to be.

“We will approach Margate a little differently and we will hopefully put into plan again a structure which means we can get a positive result.”

Langton knows it will be a tough game for his side.

He said: “They only lost their first game of the season the other night and I know their management team really well.

“I have known them for a long time.

“They will be very well structured, they have got some good players in there, they have got some real threats going forward and I think it is going to be a really hard game.

“It’s difficult to predict what is going to happen, but we will pay Margate the respect they deserve, but we need to try to build on what was an outstanding performance on Tuesday.”

Langton has added former Portsmouth youth team defender Eddie Wakley to his side and he was an unused substitute in the draw at Bowers.

However, Langton is unsure about the goalkeeping situation, with Nathan Stroomberg-Clarke serving the final game of his suspension, after being sent off in their 3-1 defeat against Worthing.

Worthing will be hoping they can take leadership of the PitchingIn Isthmian Premier as they host Bowers in a top of the table clash being played at Horsham.

The Rebels sit second in the table a point behind their visitors.

Adam Hinshelwood’s side head into the game of the back of their first defeat this season, 4-3 away to Leatherhead on Tuesday.

The defeat to Leatherhead was also Worthing’s first on the road since August 2019.

Hinshelwood has warned his side will need to play better if they want to win.

He said: “They have got a lot of good firepower and have made a couple of good signings in the post-season.

“Our performance level will need to be much higher than it was on Tuesday if we want to beat them.”
