Dave Howell reckons the next two games will provide Harrow Borough with their sternest tests of the Ryman Premier season yet.
His side travel to Tonbridge Angels on Saturday before entertaining Sutton United at Earlsmead next Tuesday. Harrow aim to get back to winning ways at the Longmead Stadium after Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat to Ashford Town but Howell is under no illusions as to the size of the tasks that await them.
"The next two games are against two of the strongest sides in the division," he said. "We just need to concentrate on ourselves to get something out of them.
"Tonbridge are a very good side and, at the start of the season, were one of my tips to be a top five or six team this season. They finished very strongly last season and have added well. Thye've got a good balance and a nice mix of youth and experience. They have an experienced midfield pair and an embarrassment of riches up front.
"We've not had much joy down there in the past."
Danny Leech is suspended for the trip after picking up five bookings, which sees new signing Toby Jinadu battling it out with Simon Dahl for a starting place.
Robin Shroot will be restored to the side after making his debut in Northern Ireland U21s 3-1 friendly win over Scotland on Tuesday.
Howell is also expected Sutton to pose a tough test.
"Sutton are a pretty strong outfit. They were relegated ast season but have spent a lot of money and are looking to bounce back.
"They beat Dover on Tuesday, who are top."
