St Neots Town are out to begin the process of salvaging their Southern League Premier Division season tonight.
David Batch’s men travel to Chesham as they attempt to end a run of eight matches without a win, which has been extended by back-to-back defeats in their most recent games.
They have fallen 10 points off the play-off spots and boss Batch admits they need to build momentum and fast to have a chance of climbing into promotion contention for their current 15th position.
Batch said: “The season hasn’t gone to plan and a lot of things have gone against us, but we need to do something about it to turn it around.
“We’ve got to get some momentum going and the way to do that is by winning football matches.
“It’s been a while since we picked up three points and hopefully that can change in this game.”
St Neots’ injury situation is finally improving with striker Drew Roberts now the only notable absentee due to a thigh problem.
