Eastbourne Town boss John Lambert believes his potent strike force can fire them all the way to the County League One title.

Kenny Pogue returned to Saffrons earlier in the week and made a goal scoring return to during the 5-1 demolition at St Francis.

He played up fornt alongside Dan Smith, who also scored, and the duo are all set to resume their partnership at basement side Selsy on Saturday.

Lambert said, “It’s great to have Kenny back with us. With him and Dan up front we carry a real threat to anyone in this league. We are in the race for the title and if we can get these two firing between now and the end of the season, then we have every chance.”

Lambert will be without Alex Duncan, who has collected 10 bookings this season, while strikers Dom Clarke and Liam Baitup are unavailable.
