DANNY Holmes has urged his Wimborne charges to "believe in our own ability" as they prepare to make their second of three successive away trips tomorrow.

Magpies jumped up to 10th in Southern League South with a 1-0 victory over Harrow Borough on Saturday and face a trip to 16th-place Met Police tomorrow night (7.45pm).

Police enjoyed a fine campaign in 2018-19, finishing third before losing in the 'super play-off' final to Tonbridge Angels, but they have struggled to replicate that form this campaign.

"I feel like we can go there and possibly get something," boss Holmes told Radio Wimborne.

"They were fantastic last year. I think they've lost a few players, like us.

"I know the manager (Gavin Macpherson) well. He's a fantastic man, I like him a lot.

"They try to do the right things. But I think they've had an up and down season so far so we've just got to believe in our own ability."

Holmes continued: "We're fully aware that we have a little bit of an overload of away games, that's why it's good that we got three points on Saturday.

"There's nothing worse than losing on Saturday, then you're climbing that hill on Tuesday. Let's be realistic, in the three away games, minimum requirement you would like to try and get four points, let's be really honest. It wouldn't be nine. I'd love nine points, don't get me wrong, but we've got to try and be realistic."

He added: "It's such an interesting league. It is in the funniest league ever really. Anyone can beat anyone on their day.

"That's what makes our non-league in this country one of the best around, it's as simple as that."
