MATTY Holmes described as a "miracle" the achievements of Wimborne Town if they can avoid relegation.

Magpies on Saturday need a point from their final fixture against 11th-placed Chesham United at KoolPak Stadium (3pm) to guarantee their Southern League South status next season.

The Cuthbury club's superior goal difference over most of their rivals could also come into play if they lose, with three points separating 15th-placed Wimborne and third-bottom Walton Casuals.

Discussing the Chesham clash, boss Holmes told the Daily Echo: "Hopefully, we get a really big crowd in and the lads appreciate the support we have had this season.

"If we stay in this league it is a miracle given the way we started and they would be heroes if they finish off the season with a positive result. "We had not played at this level before. To stay in the league and try to move forward next season would be fantastic."

On Monday, Wimborne were minutes away from the point they needed to stay in the division before Gosport netted a penalty.

"We have been in this situation for a long time this season," said Holmes. "We will keep focus and continue to do what we have in the past few weeks.
