Hungerford manager Bobby Wilkinson has vowed to get every ounce out of his players in the playoff run in.
His team have slipped off of the pace in the past few weeks but Wilkinson says they can still make the top five if they set their minds to it.
Hungerford have certainly exceeded all expectation placed upon then in their first year in the second tier of Non-League football.
They were tipped by some to return to the Southern League but those who predicted a one year stay I the Vanarama National League South have been left with egg on their faces.
Hungerford may have taken just the single point from the last nine but defeat at Hampton, 2-0 at the Beveree on Saturday, won’t change Wilkinson’s view.
“We were disappointed on Saturday because we didn’t make Hampton work hard enough for their goals, mistakes crept in,” said the manager.
“But I’m going to get everything I can, squeeze every last drop out of these players, because I still believe we can achieve something this season.
“Just because we weren’t really predicted to do well, doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t keep trying. It’s not in my DNA to give up on anything and I won’t with this.
“We’re five points away but we’re in the middle of March so we’ll be working extra hard and putting even more in.
 “It’s been a great year so far and the club is at a whole new level. We love playing at this standard.”
