Darren Jarvis is determined that Holbeach United must not let their standards slip.

The Tigers boss admits they dropped two points in last weekend’s goalless draw at Eynesbury Rovers.

However they returned to winning ways thanks to second-half goals from Ollie Pinner, Gary King and Jordan Thomas on Wednesday night.

Pinner’s header broke the deadlock after 62 minutes at Harrowby United and King’s strike doubled the advantage 11 minutes later.

Thomas made it 3-0 against his former club with 10 minutes to go.

Jarvis wants to maintain the momentum from their positive start to the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League’s Premier Division season.

He said: “We have got ourselves in a great position by winning games and we need to keep pushing on.

“The FA Cup run was a huge benefit and we want to make sure we don’t have a sticky patch in the league.

“We have to make sure that we don’t under-estimate anyone.

“If we prepare well and have the right attitude at home to Wellingborough Town on Saturday then I’m confident we will pick up three more points. If we don’t do that then all of a sudden we could be in trouble.

We have got ourselves in a great position by winning games and we need to keep pushing on.

Manager Darren Jarvis

“Eynesbury are a good side and definitely in a false league position.

“So you might look at that as a good point away from home.

“But I know what we are capable of and for that reason I feel we dropped two points.

“We weren’t at our best going forward and I’ve told the players we should have done better.

“I wanted three points at Harrowby and now we want three points at home to Wellingborough as well.”

Dan Worthington could return on Saturday after concussion kept him out in midweek and Jamie Stevens has recovered from an ankle injury. Ollie Gale (broken nose) and Jake Clitheroe (dislocated shoulder) are ruled out.
