Enfield Town have moved out of the Ryman Premier relegation zone and George Borg believes the Towners’ improved form has brought “life back into the club”, writes Adam Newson.
Borg’s men claimed a 3-0 win against Hampton & Richmond Borough on Saturday and that victory followed a 1-0 success at home to Harrow Borough last Tuesday.
Enfield have moved up to 20th the table prior to and drew 1-1 against Grays Athletic last night. The Towners now know that survival is now in their own hands.
“If we can continue to get points on the board then we will give ourselves a good chance at staying in this division,” Borg said prior to yesterday's victory.
“It’s not finished yet though. We have put a lot of work in to get to where we are and we will need to continue to do that until the end of the season. But it is back in our own hands which is important.
“I feel that we have brought life back into the club. The players are working extremely hard for our loyal supporters.”
Enfield’s form has dramatically improved since the start of 2014 and Borg’s side are undefeated at home since the turn of the year.
The Towners boss credits the club’s supporters for making the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium a difficult place to come for opposition sides.
“Our fans are by far the best in the division,” he said. “I’ve been to many games in this league since I took charge and some of the grounds are very quiet.
“There is a buzz amongst our supporters and they’ve been like that since I arrived. They are now smiling as well after the good results and that will mean they are even louder.
“Enfield Town is a big football club and without the supporters we wouldn’t be where we are. So we owe them a lot.”
Enfield are on the road on Saturday as they travel to third-placed side Dulwich Hamlet. It will be a stern test for Borg’s men who have only claimed one win on their travels this season.
However, the Towners boss said his players’ increased confidence means they will be able to compete against any side.
He said: “We are trying to win every game now whether or not we are home or away. I think I am a tactical manager and we might play a little bit differently away from home, we might be a little bit more defensive in terms of the midfielders.
“But we will go to Dulwich confident and I am sure we will give them a good game. The way everyone is feeling at the moment means we can beat anyone in the league.”
