Enfield Town boss George Borg says he can’t thank the “superb” Towners supporters enough as his side prepare for back-to-back home matches in their battle against Ryman Premier relegation. 

With 14 games of the season remaining, Borg’s men remain in the drop zone but their form since the turn of the year has been encouraging.

The Enfield manager has stated on several occasions the club face a big challenge to remain in the division but believes they have given themselves a “fighting chance” in recent weeks.

The Towners host Hampton & Richmond Borough on Saturday before welcoming Grays Athletic to the Queen Elizabeth Stadium II next Tuesday.

Borg admits Enfield’s home matches are important in their relegation fight and praised the club’s fans for their constant backing.

He said: “Our supporters have been superb. They have always been behind us in every game and that really helps us. So I can’t thank them enough and they will again be very significant in our next two matches.”

Both Hampton and Grays sit in mid-table. They are unlikely to be sucked into the relegation battle and are not able to launch a late play-off bid.

It’s something that Borg believes will give both teams freedom. He said: “If you are facing a mid-table side then that is a team that can go out and play. They can lose 2-0 and it won’t overly affect them.

“Obviously they don’t want to lose matches and there is prize money at the end of the season but those teams know they’re in the position where they can lose.

“For us, we need every point so we have to be a little more cautious. We need to win games, so it’s a case of battling, getting a goal and then looking to build on that.”

The Towners completed a 1-0 win against Harrow Borough last night and drew 1-1 with Harrow on Saturday.
