Holbeach United joint-boss Graham Drury made an impassioned appeal for the town to get behind his side after their 3-0 win over AFC Kempston Rovers.

Just 99 spectators were at Carter’s Park to see the Tigers’ 17th league win in what is a crunch month for Drury and fellow joint-manager John Chand’s side.

Next up on Saturday is an FA Vase fourth-round tie at UCL Premier Division side Thurnby Nirvana before a mouthwatering top-of-the-table clash against AFC Rushden & Diamonds at Carter’s Park on January 24.

Drury said: “The boys have got this desire where they don’t want to concede, they want to keep the momentum going and they want to keep winning games.

“The workrate of the whole team is absolutely phenomenal, right from number one to 16, and the togetherness of the squad is showing in that they don’t want to lose.

“We’ve got a fantastic chance of getting to the finals of the UCL KO Cup, we’ve got the Lincolnshire Senior Trophy, we’re still in the FA Vase and trying to achieve our goal of getting to Wembley.

“There were 99 here but I think these players deserve 199, I think the club does, and we need people to come out and support us.

“If they can support us, we can maintain it but if they don’t, then we won’t.”
