Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Classified - By Kevin Red­sull

fol­low­ing Satur­day, Ash­ford travel to sec­ond-from-bot­tom Wal­ton Ca­su­als.

Two more wins from those games would set Lovell’s side up nicely for the home clash with Folke­stone In­victa on De­cem­ber 27.

But Lovell added: “We mustn’t start think­ing about Folke­stone yet. If we do that we will come un­stuck. But if we play like we did on Tues­day in the next two games, then we’ll be okay.”

The other bonus for Lovell at Leather­head was that his play­ers didn’t pick up any in­juries, which means he will be able to se­lect from the same squad against a Crow­bor­ough side who have col­lected just 12 points from 20 league games.

The game also of­fers Ash­ford the chance of com­plet­ing an­other league ‘dou­ble’ af­ter their 4-3 victory at the Sus­sex out­fit in the sec­ond match of the sea­son.

Tues­day’s five-goal romp, mean­while, means that Lovell is un­der no pres­sure to rush son Mark back into action af­ter his long in­jury lay-off.

He said: “Mark is des­per­ate to start play­ing again but I don’t think he’s go­ing to be ready un­til the new year – and he wouldn’t get in at the minute any­way!”
