Adam Murray says there is more to come as his side plot an escape act.

Eastbourne Borough were 1-0 winners over Hemel Hempstead before a crowd of 1,288 to reignite hopes of staying in Vanarama National League south.

Yahya Bamba scored 28 minutes into his debut and Hemel were reduced to ten men just before the break.

The win came after an unfortunate midweek defeat at Hampton and ahead of Tuesday’s game at home to Dover.

Borough boss Murray said: “We knew this week was important.

“It’s a big result but I was pleased with the lads still trying to carry out the way we want to play.

“It’s nowhere near perfect but I can see them trying to do what we are asking.

“When we do that, we look a good team.

“Now we need to kick on and make sure on Tuesday this result becomes even bigger.”

Worthing suffered a shock 3-1 defeat at home to Taunton, who had gone winless in 13 games.

There were defensive errors and Ollie Pearce had a penalty saved before Jack Wadham pulled back a late consolation.

Worthing host Farnborough on Tuesday.
