RICHARD Whittington believes all six of Lancing Football Club’s remaining game are winnable as they battle to beat the drop in County League Division 1.

Lancers’ boss felt they secured a valuable point against Lingfield on Tuesday night from a dull game.

Dave Sharman gave them the lead on 39 minutes when he reacted quickly to net, after a free kick had bounced off the visiting goalkeeper.

After the break, Lingfield levelled just after the hour-mark when Clinton Moore’s effort flew through both Jake Mills’ legs and George Fenton’s on the line.

Whittington said: “I would have expected to beat them, really, but it was a scrappy game. It wasn’t the greatest game, but a good point I suppose. The last six games are all winnable and we’ll try to get something from every one.

“The Rye thing has seen people around us picking up points without playing them, whereas we took four points off them, which we had to work hard for.”
