CITY captain Ben Martin says his team are going to have a big say in this year's Blue Square South title race.
City travel to third placed Eastleigh tonight and make the trip to table toppers AFC Wimbledon on the last day of the season.
Eastleigh beat the Dons 2-1 on Saturday to close the gap on the league leaders to seven points with a game in hand and Martin is predicting that his side will have an impact on the destination of the title.
"They're only seven points off Wimbledon with a game in hand so we're going to have a big say in the title race. For the players that want to play next year for the club or want to move up it's a big test for them. Games like that you've got to play well in and look forward to," he told The Herts Advertiser.
City recorded their sixth clean sheet in seven outings with a 0-0 draw with Thurrock on Saturday but the big defender admitted to having mixed emotions about the latest shut out.
"[I've got] Mixed emotions really. I'm pleased with another clean sheet but we've got to come to places like this and win really and maybe that's been our downfall all season. It's difficult in these conditions, you've got the wind and the rain and everything they didn't score so you've got to be happy."

The playing surface was a major talking point at Ship Lane on Saturday with Martin complaining that it made it difficult to play football.
"I hate coming here. It's a difficult place to come and play football. Some of its hard some of its soft. Apparently they watered the pitch and I can't understand why because its been raining but it was difficult for both teams.
