Styles: Big chance to pick up points
Hornchurch captain Elliot Styles believes the Easter programme will go a long way to determining how their season finishes.
Urchins lost out to a 90th minute winner from Ben May at Dover on Tuesday but are in action at Boreham Wood today (Friday) before welcoming Bromley to Bridge Avenue on Monday.
And Styles knows how important a good Easter can be for Urchins if they are to boost their Conference South survival chances.
“Traditionally, Easter can have a massive impact on how your season ends,” said Styles.

“It’s two games in quick succession and it gives you that chance to pick up some big points.
“It generally has an effect on what happens come the end of the year and we need a good return from these two games.

“Six points would be great, but four would be equally as good. All the boys know how important each and every game is.”
Urchins are now 19th, with Staines and Billericay below them with games in hand.
And while in a promotion-winning campaign last year, Styles feels one eye was always on the other results. He believes this season they have to look after themselves first and foremost, adding: “It was a bit different last season when we were pushing for promotion.
“You’re always keeping an eye on other results in the league. But we can’t afford to do that this time around.
“We have to get our heads down and just concentrate on ourselves.
“If we can continue to pick up the points then we give ourselves the best chance of staying in this division. We don’t want to rely on other results going our way to stay in the league.”
“All the boys are in high spirits and team morale is great. We all have the desire to succeed and we’re all keen to get up the table and further away from danger.”
