BOSS Matty Holmes urged Wimborne Town to revive their form – with six games left to ensure Southern League South safety.

Magpies on Saturday host Basingstoke Town at Koolpak Stadium (3pm).

A run of one point from five league fixtures has seen the Cuthbury club drift just five points above the drop-zone.

But the Magpies manager remained upbeat – and insisted his players still had the belief to beat the drop.

He told the Daily Echo: “I think with the run-in now – out of the six games – we have five teams that are around us.

“It’s all in our hands. We are five points off third bottom and it’s all in the lads’ and our hands to see it through.

“If we don’t it will be our fault and that’s something we have to now concentrate on.

“We have to keep the belief we have at the minute. We have just come out of a run of playing Salisbury, Met Police, Weymouth and Kings Langley and have one point to show for it.

“We should have had possibly five or six but it wasn’t meant to be – we just have to keep that level of belief and trust with each other and the lads should be all right.”

Midfielder Franklyn Clarke is set to return from suspension for the hosts.
