DAVE Anderson believes his Harrow Borough side are on the brink of safety, but has urged them to finish the job against fellow strugglers Lewes on Saturday, writes Jon Batham.
The point at Hampton on Tuesday night means Lewes are now one of seven sides below the men of Earlsmead prior to the visit of the Rooks.
While Anderson feels that should be enough, the glass half empty side of him wants a home win to make sure their fate is out of the hands of others.
He said: “Six teams have to get past us now and you would say it is possible, but is it probable? I don’t want to tempt the footballing gods, so a win Saturday would move us right out of it.
“However, I’m just looking at it as getting a home win. Our home form has been okay, so we are going to rest up big time for the next three or four days and hopefully turn up with the batteries recharged.”
Anderson’s small cushion over the chasers means he will not be taking any liberties with his squad for the visit of the men from the Dripping Pan -– and that includes club captain Rob Wolleaston.
Anderson took a punt on the former Chelsea man when bringing him off the bench for the recent win over Enfield.
However, the midfielder continues to be troubled by a hamstring niggle and will not be risked unless 100 per cent ready.
“Rob is just stiff and sore and Michael Barima has not been feeling too good, so we have shuffled not a very big pack quite well.”
