Witham target strong finish to guarantee top flight safety

Witham Cricket Club skipper Kaan Hawkes believes two wins from their last four games should be enough to guarantee safety.
His side gave their survival chances a huge shot in the arm by beating Haverhill by nine wickets, last Saturday.
However, two of the sides below them in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship table also won, with Elmstead Grasshoppers stunning Mistley and Ipswich comfortably seeing off basement boys Ipswich.
It leaves Witham fourth from bottom in division one, ahead of this weekend’s tricky trip to Mistley.
“It’ll be another tough game for us but, if we perform as well as we did last weekend, we’ve got every chance,” said Hawes, “If we could win three out of our last four games, we’ll be safe.
“But if we can just win two, I’d still be pretty sure of staying up.
“We’re still in a decent position.
“It’s in our hands and we’re feeling confident.”
