The Portwaymen will be looking to continue their rich vein of form, having won their previous four matches in the Southern League. Speaking to the club, Lashenko believes that his side must remain professional in their approach when they travel to the Linnets.
“What we can’t do is get carried away,” Lashenko began. “We need to be ruthless to teams on the field, but be professional off the field when we do win matches.
“I think we’ve been due a run for a little while now, and it’s pleasing to see us get the results that our performances have warranted. The players have trained really well this week, and Saturday will be another big test for us. We’ve identified what we need to do in terms of achieving our goals, and hopefully with the addition of Lucas – we’ll be a step closer come Saturday evening,” Lashenko said.
As for our opponents, Lymington sit in 14th position with 25 points to their name. Results haven’t gone the Linnets way as of late, who are winless in their last seven matches, however have picked two points from their matches against Melksham and Larkhall most recently. Lymington Town favourite Nathan Hurst recently departed the club to join fellow Hampshire outfit AFC Totton.
