CONCORD Rangers manager Adam Flanagan believes two wins from the next three games are required to secure National League South safety.

The Beach Boys host already relegated Bognor Regis Town tonight before home clashes against Poole Town and Hungerford Town.

And, following Saturday’s 2-1 reverse at Braintree which saw Concord concede two late goals - Flanagan admits he wants Rangers to have safety assured before the final day duel with promotion-chasing Havant & Waterlooville.

“I think the next three games will decide everything,” he said. “If we can pick up a couple of wins then I think we will be safe. If we don’t then I fear we run the risk of being relegated.

“Every game is vital and everyone, not just the players, have to turn up to show support and what it means to remain in this league.

“I take a lot of confidence out of the performance from Saturday. “The players did the best part of a 600 mile trip last week going to Truro and having arrived home after 5am on Wednesday with many going straight to work I felt we would be a bit sluggish. I felt this was present in how we passed the ball but we soaked up pressure well until the 87th minute when we failed to cut the ball out at the front post and Braintree scored. If Braintree don’t score this then I think we win the game.

“I must also praise Adam Topley who scored and, since coming back into the team, he has shown a real drive and passion to showcase himself at this level.”

East Thurrock United host joint leaders of the division Dartford, bidding to throw a spanner in the works of their Kent neighbours.

Despite a 4-2 defeat to Chelmsford City on Saturday, East Thurrock are safely ensconced in the middle of the standings but can still have a bid say on the outcome with a match against Havant & Waterlooville still to come.

The Darts know they must maintain their top spot push with nothing less than three points their objective.
