Craig McAllister expects Gosport Borough to come out fighting against Weymouth at Privett Park on Tuesday night (7.45pm). Borough dropped into the bottom three of the Southern League premier division south after their disappointing 2-0 home defeat against Farnborough.
In McAllister’s eyes, the players need to recognise that they are involved a relegation dogfight. He remains confident they can get themselves out of trouble but must raise their game to do so.
The Gosport boss said: ‘There can be no excuses, we have to be prepared to fight every minute of every game.
‘We have good technical ability in the side but have to earn the right to play our football. ‘It is important we go back to doing the basics correctly. ‘By doing that we can cut out the mistakes which are costing us.
We have to remain positive because if we don't then we will end up getting relegated. ‘All of us have to step up because we are playing for our futures at the football club.
‘Weymouth are a top side and stand a good chance of winning the league.
‘We surprised them at their place earlier in the season and must look to do the same again.
