St Albans City manager Ian Allinson is hoping they can complete their miraculous climb away from the foot of the table when the Saints travel to Wealdstone.

Three points, coupled with a Margate loss and Hayes & Yeading failing to win, would see City confirmed in the Vanarama National League South for another year.

“It’s a massive game,” said the boss ahead of the clash at The stadium in Ruislip tomorrow (Saturday).

“I hope we get a good crowd down there but it’s just like the Hemel game. We’ve got to be totally positive.

“We are in a good vein of form, We do look like we’ve got goals in us but we’ve got to pick something up because I don’t want to leave it until the last week of the season against Dartford where they might need a win to get in the play-offs.

“If we go to Wealdstone and get a point I’ll be over the moon. Obviously we’ll try and win the game because that’s been our nature since I’ve been here. At the moment we’re succeeding and we’ve got to take that forward.”
