Ian Hazel vows that Carshalton Athletic will be going all out to win their final league game at Wealdstone on Saturday as the Robins look to secure their Ryman Premier future.

A point would be enough for Athletic to beat the drop after results fell heavily in their favour this week.

But Hazel insists adopting a cautious approach would be too risky a plan of action.

He said: “I just think we have to go there and try and get the three points.

“Whatever happens in other games is irrelevant as long as we do what we need to do.

“Obviously we would prefer not to be in this position but we are and we have to roll up our sleeves and fight.

“We have to go to Wealdstone and be really positive and give everything that we have left.”

The Robins threw themselves a lifeline on Saturday with a 2-0 win over Cray Wanderers at Colston Avenue thanks to goals from Pico Gomez and Barry Stevens.

And Hazel put the victory down to a timely change of mentality.

He added: “I think it was a case of the players finally realising the trouble we are in.

“There was a lot more effort and a far better workrate and it paid off.

“It was a massive win for us - had we lost that game we would have been in serious trouble.”

Dependent on Thursday night’s results, Wealdstone could still be sniffing a play-off place.

And Hazel admitted he would prefer that not to be the case.

He added: “There are easier games we could have had that is for sure.

“There is everything to play for.

“But it has been a long, hard, difficult season for us and we have to be grateful that we still have the chance to end it on a high.”
