MANAGER Paul Collicutt insists Evesham United have got “nothing to fear” ahead of Saturday’s trip to table-topping Blackfield and Langley (3pm).

Evesham sit two places and one point off the Southern League Division One South play-off positions with two matches left.

But having played one game more than the teams above them Collicutt reckons only a victory will do at Blackfield and Langley to keep Robins’ promotion hopes alive.

The Hampshire side extended their lead at the summit to four points after a crushing 4-1 win at second-placed Yate Town last Saturday.

But Collicutt says his side can take confidence from their 2-1 victory over Blackfield and Langley at the Jubilee Stadium in September.

“We have got a very difficult game against the league leaders but have got nothing to fear,” Collicutt said.

“We played them at our place in the early part of the season and got a win against them.

“I have never been to Blackfield before. It will be a first for me but I have been told it is a big pitch and very open.

“For us to take everything to the last game of the season we need to go there and get three points. But it is not going to be easy.

“On our day we know we can beat the best and we have proved it. We will go there in confident mood so hopefully we can put in the performance which we know we need.”

Winger Carl Brown is set to return having previously been unavailable due to personal reasons but there are doubts over the fitness of midfielder Ashley Williams (knee) and captain Linden Dovey (calf).

The duo suffered knocks in Evesham’s 3-1 home win over Moneyfields on Sunday.

Aside from the pair’s injuries Collicutt had a 60th birthday to remember as an own goal followed by strikes from Steve Davies and Joe Turley steered United to victory.

“All I wanted was three points and fair play to the lads as they delivered which was great as Moneyfields had beaten us twice this year,” Collicutt said.

“They beat us in the FA Trophy at home which was probably our worst performance of the season and then we went up there and lost in the last five or 10 minutes.

“They are a strong side and have had a very good season so it was nice for the lads to put in a solid performance.

“The lads showed me what I have always believed that they can match the best and they did that.

“But unfortunately we have shot ourselves in the foot many times and we have underperformed and underachieved.

“That’s the disappointment. Sunday’s result means nothing unless we get three points on Saturday.”
