HARRY Wheeler is hopeful Dorking Wanderers do not reach the levels of the weekend when they face his Billericay Town tonight.

Dorking defeated Town’s promotion rivals Folkestone Invicta 5-3 in a thrilling Isthmian Premier League clash.

Billericay’s match against Wingate & Finchley was not without drama, as Sam Deering levelled deep into injury-time to snatch a 2-2 draw for the league leaders.

The point leaves Billericay a point ahead of Dulwich Hamlet with a game in hand.

Victory would put Town closer to the title, with Dulwich visiting Leatherhead tomorrow.

And head coach Wheeler remains confident of getting across the line and securing the league crown, having beaten Dorking 1-0 last month.

“We beat them last month and were worthy winners despite the narrow scoreline,” he said. “Our finishing should have been better that night but we know Dorking can pose a threat.

“They got a great result on Saturday, a good result for themselves and for us, although I hope they can’t repeat it tonight.

“Dorking, like us, have played a lot of games recently and have a busy run-in too so there will be some tired bodies out there.

“Winning this game would be significant and if others slip up this could be a very good week.

“We want to win every game and will be doing everything we can to make that happen.”

Wheeler - who has been told by Dorking that their pitch is in only slightly better condition than the AGP Arena surface - also praised his players for the fight shown to earn a point on Saturday.

“It keeps things in our hands after we switched off for a mad five minute spell and went 2-0 down,” he said. “I have asked these guys not to give in and give everything. That is a really important trait at this time of the season.”

“It is another week closer to the end of the season and we need to win it.”

Jamie O’Hara is suspended although Calum Butcher is nearing a return to action.
