Lee Bradbury is pleased as punch with Havant and Waterlooville’s form, and why shouldn’t he be?
The club are back competing for the Ryman Premier title after an iffy end to 2016 say them slip off the pace.
This year though the Hawks have been in strong form and although this month they face a large number of away games, they are in the hunt.
Saturday’s conclusive win at Enfield Town, 4-1, pushed the club to within a point of league leaders Bognor.
Bradbury’s team have now won four of their last five Ryman League matches and belief is growing on the south coast that Hampshire can overhaul Sussex.
The manager said: “The players are playing with a lot of determination and it’s really great to see, I’m really happy.
“We’re on a good run at the moment and I thought we were good value for the three points on Saturday at Enfield.
“The second half we dug in and showed a lot of resolve and that’s all you can ask for at this time of the season.”
Havant though know they need to beat struggling AFC Sudbury on Saturday as after that they face four straight away games – Harrow, Grays, Dulwich and Needham Market.
