TOWN travel to Ilford on Saturday looking to put more daylight between themselves and the drop zone.
Hovering above the relegation places is a risky business and the quicker Steve Browne and his men can get points on the board the better.
A second win in three games has got to have built confidence in the young Scholars.
The 4-3 success over Tilbury on Saturday, which should have been a more comfortable scoreline, was a welcome three points for boss Browne.
He has said that results at this stage in the season are the most important thing.
With just six Ryman League wins from 23 games this season, results are clearly what he needs.
Two of those victories have come since December 29 when the Scholars picked up a cracking 3-2 victory away at promotion hopefuls Ware and then the win on Saturday.
This weekend's opponents Ilford are looking like relegation certainties, but will provide tough opposition as they fight for their lives at the bottom.
Without a win in nine games and only two league victories all season, you have to fear for the Foxes' safety.
Having said that, when these two met in October they played out a 1-1 draw in which Ilford goalkeeper James Marrable scored a dramatic late equaliser.
Sam Adejokun had put the Scholars in front but, not for the first time this term, missed chances ultimately cost the Parkfield club all three points.
Lets hope Browne's troops are firing on all cylinders this weekend and return from the trip to the Cricklefield Stadium with another three points.
Form guide to opponents
FOR an idea of what to expect against Ilford at the weekend, Potters Bar Town should look at the Foxes' scheduled match tomorrow tonight (Wednesday.)
The Essex club take on Tilbury in a league fixture, weather permitting.
On Saturday, the Scholars dominated against the Dockers and should have finished the game off by half-time.
As it was, they finished 4-3 winners.
Will the result tomorrow night be an indication of what to expect from Ilford at the weekend?
