Whitehawk make the trip to Wiltshire tomorrow (Saturday) hoping to end their search for their first three points of the season.

Having beaten Chippenham Town in the Third Qualifying Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy last weekend, the two teams face each other again – this time in the National League South.

And boss Steve King will be demanding more of the same from his side now they have shown him what they can do as his side look to end their winless run.

“We feel every week that things are improving,” he said. “I had to completely change the squad when I came in and it’s so difficult to do that mid-season.

“We are seeing players settle into their roles now and with a bit of luck we will see that first league win soon.

“The situation hasn’t changed. There are still so many points to play for and nobody is throwing in the towel.

“That first league win will come, and when it does I think it we’ll see things start to turn.”

Pape Gueye and Michael Cain put the Hawks 2-0 ahead against the Bluebirds, with Connor Tighe spurring a chance to put the hosts 3-0 up.

David Pratt then halved the deficit with 15 minutes to go, before Mark Collier’s side hit the bar late on.

However, the Hawks saw out the game to progress to the First Round with a welcome win.

“I think we did ever so well in periods,” said the Hawks boss after the game.

“With a make-shift back four we did brilliantly, but it will be an even tougher test away from home.”

Chippenham Town come into the game having completed the signing of Abdi Noor.

The 21-year-old is a striker or winger, formerly with SkyBet Championship side Cardiff City.

Internationally, Noor has been capped for Wales at under-17 and under-19 level. He has been training at the club for three weeks, but the Bluebirds have only just secured international clearance.

Talking ahead of the game, Bluebirds boss Collier said: “We aren’t having a crisis, I accept that we are in a difficult place at the moment with just one win in our last five games but there are two ways we can go about it.

“We can either feel sorry for ourselves or we can face the challenge head on. It’s down to us, me as the manager and everyone at the club from the chairman all the way down to the ball boys.

“Without a doubt this is the toughest time I have had. As a club we have had 15 or 16 months of being on a complete high and now we are having a downturn.

“We are like everyone else. We are going to have a downturn. I don’t care if you’re Real Madrid or Corsham Town, you’re going to have a downturn in form at some point and that is what we are having at the moment.”

Kick off is at 3pm at Hardenhuish Park, Bristol Road, Chippenham, SN14 6LR.
