SAM Owusu insists that Witham Town still have plenty to play for this season.

Following their 1-1 draw with Felixstowe & Walton United last weekend, Witham now have seven Bostik League division north games left, starting with a trip to AFC Sudbury on Saturday.

Town head into the game sat 18th in the table and Owusu feels they should not feel comfortable from the threat of relegation yet, so he hopes they can have a strong finish to keep building for next season.

The 24-year-old midfielder said: “We know we have plenty to play for still – there are seven cup finals for us now.

“We’re not 100 per cent safe so there are seven big games until the end of the season.

“I think if we treat each game as a cup final then we’ll have the right mentality and give every team that we face a really good game.

“We know we’re not entirely safe, but we have to be building for next season.

“There will be other players come in but we have an ethos that we are trying to create here where we work hard in every game.

“We’re not here to get rolled over and we’re here to implement things and move ourselves forward.

“It’s all about stepping stones for us now and putting build blocks in place for next season as well as finishing this season strongly."

Owusu has been entrusted by manager Mark Ashford with the Town captain's armband at times this season and he is enjoying taking the captaincy role alongside Danny Norton and feels they are like the Brothers of Destruction WWE Wrestling tag team in the way they handle the leadership responsibilities.

He added: “Having the armband does mean something to me, but I’ll talk out there with or without it.

“Between Danny and myself, we’re tag-teaming it a bit with the captaincy – it’s like Kane and the Undertaker!

“I know Danny will talk and encourage players and I will do exactly the same to lift the whole team up.

“You need more than one leader in the team and we keep things going when they may not be working well.

“It’s nice that Mark (Ashford) values me and it was what he said when he came in that he likes players who show leadership qualities.

“I like to be that organising player that he needs in the team and it’s nice that he places that trust in me by giving me the captain’s armband."
