Town just one win from safety, says boss Adams
MANAGER Carl Adams believes Stratford Town need one more win to secure their Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division status.
Town secured a 1-1 draw against Hitchin on Tuesday night, earning them another precious point as they bid to rubber-stamp safety in their maiden season at this level.
The result leaves them in 17th place on 43 points, seven above the relegation zone with up to four games in hand on their rivals.
Adams feels 46 points will be enough for the promoted club to achieve its one and only aim for the campaign, and if that target is reached this Saturday against Hungerford, then all the better.
The Town boss said: “We’ve now lost one in the last four and considering the teams that we’ve played we are doing alright again.
“It still isn’t brilliant, but we have turned a little bit of a corner and we’re now seven points clear of the bottom four with games in hand.
“I think one more win will be good enough for us to stay up.
“Then I think we can maybe relax a little bit and start enjoying the last ten games of the season.”
