Lee Bradbury will be hoping his Eastbourne Borough side can make it six points out of nine with the visit of Oxford City on Saturday

Borough supporters can have a case for being cautiously optimistic after watching the first two games, and they will be hoping their team can make it two wins from two home games this week.

Oxford City provide the opposition on Matchday 3 in the National League South, with Mark Jones' side still searching for their first win.

Borough, meanwhile, recorded their first win of the new season on Tuesday night after seeing off newly-promoted Tonbridge Angels, 2-0.

"I'm happy with both the result and performance," said Lee Bradbury after the game.

"The togetherness is there for everyone to see, which for a very new group of players is great to see. They seem to be willing to go to war for each other, which is a quality you have to have at this level, otherwise you will get beat.

"I am very pleased with how things are going at this moment in time."

Nick Wheeler and Greg Luer were on target in the first half as the Sports sealed a 2-0 win on Tuesday night, with the Sports perhaps guilty of not adding to that lead in the second period.

Bradbury added: "Tonbridge worked hard as a team. I said before game if we matched their work rate, our quality will show through and that's what happened. It's a good win, and could've scored more on a different night.

"We are at home again on Saturday, and if we can manage that then 6 points out of a possible 9 would be a great start but we have to go out and find another determined, energetic performance to overcome a good Oxford City team."

The official gate on Tuesday was 656 - and Bradbury has issued a rallying cry to get the Sports faithful to turn up Saturday and get behind his side.

"We want a good crowd," Bradbury said.

"I encourage you to come and get behind us. Bring family, bring friends and I'm sure you won't be disappointed with what you come and watch - and hopefully see us win!"

Kick off is 3pm at Priory Lane.
