Lewes FC boss, Scott Both, says the win against Charlton in the Conti Cup was important in building on the four draws in the league.

The Rooks go into the game vs. Durham on Sunday unbeaten but still searching for the first league win of the campaign but Booth is confident following the Conti Cup win against Charlton.

“No one really enjoys drawing games, unless your a goal down with a minute to go, in which case it can feel like a win. Drawing four on the bounce is very unusual, it doesn’t happen very often.

“To get the win against Charlton in the cup, was really important because we need continuity in the squad and build on the draws we’ve had.

“Winning that game was important and the players worked hard for it. It was a game that could have been lost because Charlton are a good side but it gives us the continuity that we wanted.

“Now it’s about adding a league win to that and solidifying our start to the season but it’s not going to be easy in an away game against Durham, but there’s no game this season we won’t be looking to win.”

Booth knows Durham boss, Grant Scott well, and therefore knows the threat they possess.

“Away games bring something a bit different, especially going all the way up to Durham, travelling up the day before.

“Training has been really good though this week and it’s been good to focus on this week’s away game, we’ve had a few at home recently.

“Durham are always a tough opponent and they’ve got a win under their belt in the league. They’re always a competitive team and want to be amongst the top teams in the Championship.

“There’s a lot of teams within that bracket this season, I think. They offer a bit of experience, players that have played together a few years now, know each other well.

“I know their coach, Grant Scott, very well from my time at Glasgow City, he’s ex-Hibbs and came in for a while at Glasgow when I left. So I know him well and how he likes to play football.”
