“Confidence in football is a fragile thing”
Eastbourne Borough make the trip to high flying Woking on Saturday, looking to upset the form book.
Boxing Day's defeat at Dulwich Hamlet saw Borough extend their winless run to four games in all competitions, but Jamie Howell's men will be hoping for a response at Kingfield.
The Cards go into the game with a seven game unbeaten run in the league - a run which has seen them move up towards the top of the table.
Reflecting on the 2-1 defeat at Champion Hill, boss Howell said: "It was a disappointing result against Dulwich, unfortunately an all together similar story for us, some good play, some soft goals and a defeat, but again the players worked hard and gave their all.
"I have said for some weeks that we need to bring players in and we are looking to do that to help the current squad, goals change games and if Lloyd's effort had crept in then it would have given us something to really hold onto.
"However, a few minutes later a shot and a deflection gave Mark no chance and we are a goal down when we had looked relatively comfortable. With the goal going in and the huge crowd it really gave Dulwich some momentum.
"Confidence in football is a fragile thing. Only a month ago we beat Dartford and Wealdstone and played some of the best football since I have arrived.
"We then suffered defeats at Billericay and Dorchester which still really hurts and confidence suffers. The only way we will get through this current downturn is to work harder, stay together and results will come.
"We have 27 points presently and I would have taken those many points at this stage of the season at the start of it."
Kick off is 3.00pm at The Laithwaite Community Stadium, Woking, GU22 9AA.
