Alex Sykes is in no mood to wind down as the football season reaches its final fortnight.

Four Calor League Division One West games separate Wood from their summer break, but Sykes is keen to add two more to the list.

With his side in sight of a play-off spot, Wood joint boss Sykes knows victory against Godalming Town on Tuesday night will ramp up the pressure on rivals for the top five.

And with rich experience of previous promotion and play-off campaigns under his belt, Sykes is happy to still be involved in the shake-up.

“Sometimes when you get to April there can be a case of winding down for the end of the season, but there is no case of that with us,” Sykes said.

“I am really keen to extend the season and so are the lads and we know that it’s still in our hands with the games we have to play.

“Before Saturday’s game (a 2-1 win at Fleet) we had targeted four wins out of five and that’s not changed now.”

Goalkeeper Tom King, who missed the trip to Fleet, returns to the squad, as does Forest Green youngster Dan Martin.
