POTTERS Bar captain George Sifonios thought there were positives to be taken from Town's 1-1 draw with Northwood on Saturday.

The Scholars were 1-0 down at the break but a second-half Junior Dadson goal ensured the Scholars claimed a point.

Midfielder Sifonios, a former England Schools' Under-19 player, said: "I think we can take a few positives from the game.

"We don't get a lot of draws.

"After going a goal down it showed character to get back into the game.

"We need to be a bit more clinical in front of goal, but that has been a problem all season."

With eight league games remaining of the term, the 23-year-old revealed what the club is aiming for.

"For the rest of the season we want to put up as many points as possible," he said.

An encounter with relegation threatened Wivenhoe Town later this month has been earmarked as one Bar must get three points from to keep clear of the drop zone.

"There are no easy matches in this division.

"The game with Wivenhoe (March 22) is a real six-pointer and a must win," added Sifonios.

The Parkfield club skipper was substituted after 25 minutes of the game on Saturday suffering from a hip injury.

It is unlikely he will feature in this weekend's fixture away in Essex against Aveley.

He will not train this week in a bid to rest his injury and be fit for the season run-in.

"I'm a doubt for the weekend. I definitely want to play, I'm not injury prone so hope it is just a little niggle.

"I'll see how it feels on Friday and maybe test it on Saturday," said the former Wealdstone and Leyton FC man.

"I want to be fit for the last seven or eight games.
