Rocks wary of fixture congestion

Rocks’ fans will know the feeling all too well.


As February rolls in, this is crunch time, when every game matters and the fixture list shows very few free days in which to squeeze all the fixtures in.


In previous years, that has hampered Bognor’s charge on all fronts. But this year, so far, it does not look to be too daunting.


That can all change very quickly though.


Nights like Tuesday do not help, when the players, officials and fans made the trip to Burgess Hill Town all fired up for the match, only for it to be called off 20 minutes before kick off.


Manager Jamie Howell said he did understand the move but questioned if it could have been done a little sooner.


He said: “To be fair, the extra games were a real hindrance last year but I don’t think it’s nearly as bad this time round.


“We don’t know yet if Harrow Borough on Saturday will go ahead yet but so far we have been quite fortunate.”


One player who may not be around for the resceduled match against Burgess Hill is on-loan striker Elijah Adebayo, pictured right.


The Fulham man has added a real threat upfront for the Rocks, netting four times in his five games at the club.


But with just one more week on the initial one month loan deal, Howell is still unclear if the 19-year-old will be sticking around for a bit longer.


Howell said: “We will speak to Fulham after Saturday and see where they are.


“If they want him to stay, then fantastic, he has been excellent for us. We will just see what they want to do.”


Howell also indicated that he was looking at making a further addition as the season builds to a climax.


He said: “I’m pretty happy with the squad. I would like one more but the squad we have has been doing well for us so far.”
