Darran Foster is hoping his Daventry Town side will be on cloud nine come the end of March.

Foster’s men face a total of nine fixtures this month and having gone unbeaten in their first two, they are set up to make it a productive four-week period.

Next up, Daventry host Godalming tonight (Fri, ko 8pm), who have their sights firmly set on promotion from Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central this season.

And Foster knows Daventry will have to be on the money if they are to avenge the 1-0 defeat they suffered in the reverse fixture back in October.

He said: “They are a very good side. They’re big and strong and we didn’t get much change out of them when we lost down there. They’ve got two or three lively lads and it will be a really tough one on Friday. We’ve just got to take each game as it comes and see how many points we can pick up.

“We’ve got nine games in March and if we can pick up a quick 20 points then who knows? I’ll never give up.”

Picking up 20 points may now be a bit too much to ask, having drawn their past two games 1-1.

On Saturday Dav had to settle for a point at Slough, and then on Tuesday night drew at home with second-from-bottom North Greenford, who have suddenly found some form.

Jamie Gould scored on Saturday, while Dav’s marksman on Tuesday was Ashley Robinson.

Woodford United meanwhile are still waiting for their first point of the season.

They went close on Saturday in a 2-0 home defeat to Uxbridge, who scored their second in stoppage time, but on Tuesday they were well beaten, 5-1 by Chalfont St Peter despite Ashley Inwood’s consolation.

On Saturday, The Reds go to Beaconsfield SYCOB.
