ROB Small insists there is no pressure on his Bowers & Pitsea side when they welcome Isthmian Premier League table-toppers Folkestone Invicta to the Len Salmon Stadium tomorrow.

Bowers head into the clash having recorded back-to-back domestic wins for the second time this season.

As a result, Bowers have managed to open up a five-point gap between themselves and the drop zone, but Small admits his players must be at the top of their game if they are to record three victories on the trot by overcoming Folkestone.

“We have nothing to lose and everything to gain,” said the Bowers chief.

“They have made a tremendous start to the season and they will be buoyant after beating fellow promotion chasers Horsham last week.

“The reality is that, at the moment, we would beat Folkestone in one out of 10 attempts. We need to hope that this weekend is that one time.

“We need everyone to be in the right frame of mind and peak physical condition.

“The whole team will need to play to the best of their ability.”

Bowers recorded an emphatic 4-0 triumph over Enfield Town last weekend.

And Small is calling for his side, who are enjoying their first ever season in the third tier of non-league football, to replicate that performance this weekend.

“If everyone gives an eight or nine-out-of-10 performance, like against Enfield last week, then we have a good chance of getting a positive result,” added Small.

“We have just chalked off six points from the last two games, which is delightful.”
