HAYES &Yeading United look to have rediscovered their winning formula in the nick of time as they enter the final 10 games of the season.
United arrested their slide from the pinnacle of the Conference South table by losing only one of their last 10 games, to leaders AFC Wimbledon, winning the last four in a row.
The signing of Dale Binns a month ago has been a major factor in their resurgence, with the left midfielder yet to taste defeat in a United shirt.
His arrival on the left wing has not only improved the balance of Garry Haylock's team but it has also allowed Josh Scott to move back up front and he has responded with five goals in the last three games.
He now has 19 for the season and it could have been a few more because he missed several very good chances in the 5-0 thrashing of Basingstoke Town last Saturday. Turn to page 63 for a full report on that game.
United entertained Worcester City last night (Tuesday) and they will be confident of cementing their place in the play-offs in the coming weeks.
They travel to relegation candidates Thurrock on Saturday and Braintree Town on Tuesday.
Their run in could hardly be easier on paper, with the notable exception of a visit from Hampton and Richmond Borough.
After the Beavers, ninth-placed Bromley are their next highest opponents and United complete the campaign against Fisher Athletic and Bognor Regis Town over the final two weekends, by which time both of them will almost certainly have been relegated
Defenders Gary MacDonald and Tom Cadmore will both be available this weekend after being suspended for one and two games respectively.
Long term injury victim Toby Little played 60 minutes for the reserves last week.
