SWINDON Supermarine manager Lee Spalding knows his team cannot let upcoming opponents Hendon’s relegation dogfight affect them when they travel to Greater London on Saturday.

Marine secured their safety in the Southern League Premier Division South weeks ago following their incredible second-half-of-the-season recovery, and could end the campaign just six points shy of the play-offs.

Whereas opponents Hendon know a win will guarantee their survival in a six-team fight to stay in the division.

Spalding says his team will treat Saturday’s season finale the same as any other game and will endeavour to emerge with three more points to add to their tally.

He said: “Hendon are still scrapping for their lives, so it will be a proper game, without a doubt.

“We don’t want to go there and just turn up. We don’t want to make the numbers up, we want to go there, do it properly and finish with a win.

“It’s the last game of the season, so we’ve been in training on Thursday with a view to preparing, like we always do, for a game that we want to win.

“It’s the same as any other game. We want to go there, keep a clean sheet and get the win.”

Spalding is also keen to pick up a victory so his team has some positive momentum to take forward into next sesaon.

Following what will be a highly-commendable finish in their first season back at Southern Premier level, the Marine chief is keen to kick on again next term.

He said: “It’s all positive at the moment. Looking forward to next season, I think we’ve got a lot of positives to take from this season into the next.

“We’ve got a better squad of players that we’ve assembled and we’re hoping that we can get all of these players committed to the club for next season.

“If we can maybe add a couple more, it’s looking good.”
