Burgess Hill Town will be targeting six points in their next two games as they look to climb the Bostik Premier table.

The Hillians were without a midweek game this week and face Merstham at home and Leatherhead away this Saturday and next Wednesday respectively.

New head coach Simon Wormull said: “We are preparing for Merstham which is quite nice because we have come out of a lot games in the past six or seven weeks and with a small squad, we have really pushed them.

“It’s nice now to have Tuesday and Thursday night to actually do some proper training and get ourselves together and work on some stuff without having cup games and midweek games interrupting that.”

Wormull has told his players what the expectations are for these two games, and that they already owe him a point for not reaching the target in the past two games.
He said: “Those two games [Merstham and Leatherhead], we are looking to go and win.

“We have identified what points we want. Taking it back to last week where we won at Margate then lost to Kingstonian, my forecast to the players was four points from the two games.
“So what I said to them Saturday was ‘you owe me a point’.

“In the next two games we have decided what we think we should get from them and hopefully we will get what we want.”

Aaron Smith-Joseph is the only doubt after a recurrence of an injury on Saturday. He is seeing an osteopath this week.
