BOSS Tom Killick has asked his Poole Town players to put everything on the line in a bid to beat the National South drop.

Dolphins are four points from safety with 11 games of their league campaign remaining.

They host third-place Hampton & Richmond Borough on Saturday (3pm) and will be hoping to improve their wretched record at the Black Gold Stadium this season.

Killick told the Daily Echo: “I think it is widely accepted they are one of the strongest sides in the league but we cannot look at who we are playing.

“It doesn’t matter who we play, we need to fight to see if we can get these points because it’s very much now or never.

“We need to look at the fact we have 11 fixtures and we probably need to win five of them.

“All we can control is the effort and discipline we put into performances. What needs to be apparent is that anyone watching the game can see from minute one what is at stake for us as a club.

“That is the minimum and, if it really shows we are fighting, that is all you can ask for and, hopefully, it will be enough over this stretch of games.

“We need to go all guns blazing, that has been the case for a while but it is now even more so. There needs to be an overriding effort to see what it brings us.”

Dolphins have endured a torrid time at home this season, their record of nine points from 16 games being the worst in the division.

With five of their remaining league fixtures on their own patch, boss Killick is eager to see a vast improvement.

“If you look at our overall record it is clearly home form which has let us down,” the Dolphins boss added.

“Our away form is above average and would put us with some of the sides in the top half. The home form has caused us a big problem and needs to be addressed.

“When you are facing adversity there is always the temptation to shy away from things a bit. That is the thing we can’t do.

“There is so much at stake that we need to know we have given it absolutely everything.”

Bristol Rovers loan ace Jordan Williams is set to miss out for Dolphins after being forced off early on against Braintree last time out.

However, Killick has been boosted by the return to training of influential defender Michael Walker.

The former Dolphins skipper had been sidelined since November 2016 after suffering serious knee ligament damage.

He could be in line to feature when Dolphins host Wimborne Town in the semi-final of the Dorset Senior Cup on Tuesday.

“It may be that we will look to get him into some sort of game. He could play some part against Wimborne,” added Killick.
