Bishop's Stortford joint-manager Steve Smith wants fans to turn up the volume for Worthing match


By Dave Ryan


Steve Smith wants Bishop’s Stortford supporters to crank up the volume when they host fourth-placed Worthing in a massive Bostik League, Premier Division clash this Saturday (3pm).

The joint-manager is hoping for a big crowd as they aim to make it five straight wins following the weekend’s 2-1 home success over Margate.

Veteran striker and Smith’s fellow joint-boss Jamie Cureton got a brilliant late winner, and another triumph this time out would see eighth-placed Stortford move to within two points of their opponents in the play-off race.

Smith said: “I’m so pleased for the boys. It was a massive three points.

“I was hard on them at times as performance-wise it wasn’t great, but we got the result.

“It was a great finish from Curo and it was good to see Luke [Callander] win the header for the goal as he gets a lot of stick.

“With only four games to go we’re hanging in there and still have a chance of the play-offs, so I’m hoping for a lot of support on Saturday.”

One piece of bad news for the Blues is that an injury suffered by young striker Olly Miles against Margate has ruled him out of the last four fixtures.

“Olly took a real whack and has broken his cheekbone in two places,” said Smith. “It’s a real shame for him and we wish him a speedy recovery.

“We’ve got a lot of players playing with injuries, but we’re hanging in there and we want to keep it going until the end of the season.”
