Sporting Khalsa boss Ian Rowe hopes his men can sneak up on the rails

Sporting Khalsa boss Ian Rowe has challenged his side to finish their season on a high as they continue to chase the Midland League's top two.

Rowe hopes for Khalsa

Rowe admits his side are outsiders in the race for the title but wants to be in a position to cash in should either Ilkeston or Walsall Wood slip up.

Khalsa are 10 points behind leaders Ilkeston and seven behind second-placed Wood, with two games in hand on both of their rivals.

The two still have to play each other during the run in while Khalsa also face a trip to Wood.

"We have got it all to do in terms of the title and if I am being completely honest it's looking like a two-horse race between Ilkeston and Walsall Wood.

"All we can do is see if we can finish well.

We still have to play Walsall Wood and they also have to play Ilkeston.

We have got to keep going and try to put some pressure on by picking up a few wins.

It was disappointing to drop two points last Saturday.

We had a game called off on Tuesday and if we lose any more we will find ourselves playig Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday.

We are also in the semi-finals of the Walsall Senior Cup and the JW Hunt, so there is plenty to polay for and it would be nice to finish the season with some silverware.
