Burgess Hill Town boss Simon Wormull wants his side to impose themselves on the game as they travel to Leatherhead in the Bostik Premier tonight.

Hill come into the game off the back of a morale-boosting victory against Merstham on Saturday that saw them move away from the relegation zone. Burgess Hill's opponents currently sit in 18th, one place above the Hillians, with 16 points from 13 games.

Despite the Tanners' lowly position in the table they have recorded two league wins on the spin. Last Saturday saw Leatherhead defeat Enfield Town 4-1 at home whilst they also picked up a hard-fought 2-1 home victory over Kingstonian last Wednesday.

Wormull said: "They got a good result at the weekend but they've had a bit of an indifferent time of it as well.

"It's going to be a difficult game. I think they're quite a direct team but if we set ourselves up right and we impose ourselves on them, then I'm hoping that we will come away with a decent result."

Ahead of tonight's trip to Fetcham Grove, Wormull confirmed that two players may feature in their game against the Tanners, but ruled out an experienced defender.

He added: "We've got Andre McCollin back and Aaron (Smith-Joseph) potentially might be on the bench so he may be available. The only player that I know won't be available is Gary Charman but other than that we've got a fully fit squad."

Kick-off tonight is at 7:45pm.
