ANDOVER New Street go into a top-of-the-table clash with Tadley Calleva full of confidence.

Going into tomorrow’s game at at Foxcotte Park the Street carry a seven-game unbeaten run, most recently seeing off local rivals Whitchurch United 4-2.

With one point separating The Street and the Tadley side, manager John Smith said his side’s recent run of form has inspired them to strive for bigger things.

He said: “At the start of the season we were just focused with staying up, but with the run we are on our ambitions have changed.

“This Saturday’s game is a real big six pointer for us and will go a long way to determining how the top of the table looks come the end of the season.

“We want to finish in the top three this season as it would be really nice for the lads to have a real promotion push.”

Smith said he knows that his side are strong on the attack and has recently been working with his defence making sure they are as solid as possible.

With minimal changes to his side, the Street manger said this has helped string a run of results together.

This was evident as The Street advanced to the semi-final of the Andover Open Cup with the 4-2 win over the Jam Boys.

The hosts raced into a 3-0 lead thanks to a 25-yard effort from Jazz Beavis opening the account. Shane Lock and Zach Neve added two more as the home side looked comfortable for their lead at half-time.

Corey Cherrett pulled one back for the Jam Boys, before substitute Wade Crisp put a finishing touch to the scoring for Andover New Street.

The visitors did pull one more back in the dying moments, Josh Smith the scorer of the consolation goal.

Tomorrow’s game is a 3pm kick-off.
