Potters Bar Town will plan and prepare accordingly to snap their losing streak – despite a tough run of four successive away games starting with Saturday’s trip to Lewes.

That is followed by visits to Kingstonian, Worthing and Whitehawk with the first three road trips all to sides in the top half of the Bostik Premier Division table.

But joint-manager Scott Cousins believes his side are more than capable of reversing a run of just one point form the last seven games.

He said: “On paper this run of fixtures looks tough but no-one would have given us a chance going away to Bognor and we got a deserved point.

“We always do our research on every opposition, it doesn’t matter who they are.

You may also want to watch:

“If you don’t give the opposition the respect they deserve, you’ll lose.

“All we can do is to make sure we are right and that will give us every chance of getting points on the board, no matter who we play.”

He also admitted that while he is still looking at ways of strengthening the squad, the required type of player needed in their battle isn’t always readily available.

He said: “We’re always looking at bringing players in but at this stage of the season and in the position we’re in, you’re looking for the experienced leaders who have been in this position before.

“One, they’re not cheap and two, they are very rare so they tend to be already snapped up.

“But Lee [O’Leary] and I are always off watching games, making enquiries or putting seven-day approaches in to try and improve the squad if we can.”
