Eastbourne Borough could secure their National League South status tonight when they make the long trip to Weston-super-Mare, writes Ant Scott.

Victory for the Sports will see Adam Murray’s side complete the great escape.

It’s been a dramatic turnaround for Borough in recent months, with the team sitting sixth in the form guide over the last ten games.

“There is still a long way to go,” said the Murray ahead of the trip to Somerset.

“We have to focus on ourselves. As long as we take care of our business, everything around us will look after itself and that doesn’t change.

“We have to go again, we have to up the standards and the intensity.

“The players have to give everything.”

It comes after the Sports sealed a 3-0 win against Chippenham Town in the final game at Priory Lane this season on Saturday.

Sam Beard’s early opener put the hosts on their way, with Moussa Diarra and then Yahya Bamba sealing the Sports’ biggest league win of the campaign.

Murray added: “The way we got the three points was special. I thought the lads were outstanding.

“We moved the ball well, and we put a really good team under stress when we needed to.

“Our out of possession work was the difference. If we weren’t right, then they’d pick us off but the lads carried out the gameplan perfectly.

“We knew we had to start fast, but with that you need quality and purpose in what you do and we delivered.”
