Wakes boss Darren Munton is sure his side will move up the table if they can just put their inconsistency behind them.
Bourne, who host Rothwell Corinthians in the Hinchingbrooke Cup this evening, drew 1-1 at home to third-placed Eynesbury Rovers on Saturday with a much better display than against Rushden and Higham United a week earlier.
Munton said: “If we play like we did on Saturday I can see us getting points. A few wins and we’ll soon move up the table.
“Several players were not at the races the week before but Saturday was a good response from the lads.
“I would happily have taken a point at the start the way they are playing at the moment.”
Ben Easson converted Johnny Currall’s cross to put the Wakes in front in the 77th minute at the Abbey Lawn but within a couple of minutes Rovers were level thanks to Shane Fox, heading home at a corner.
Munton made a couple of changes with Jake Mason, who rejoined the Wakes during the week, playing up front and Tom Caldicott playing deeper.
“Whether we raise our game against the better sides I do not know. The goal we got was a really great passing move,” said Munton.
“Lee Wood has come in and done a great job. He keeps it simple, and at the back Aaron pulled of a fantastic save. It takes the pressure off the defenders when he’s in that form.”
This evening’s game at the Abbey Lawn kicks off at 7.45pm.
Bourne: Aaron Bellairs, Kev Elgar, Tom Cardall, Aaron Jesson, Dan Smith, Lee Wood, Craig Rook, Tom Caldicott (Ben Easson), Mike Feely (Fernand Bass), Johnny Currall, Jake Mason (Seb Hood).
