HOLLAND FC joint-boss Glenn Cowen says he and his players will relish the challenge of taking on title-chasing Coggeshall.
The sides are set to meet in a Thurlow Nunn League first division contest at the Rush Green Bowl tomorrow night (7.45pm).
Coggeshall are second in the table while Holland are now seventh, after back-to-back 2-0 victories.
They won by that score at Downham on Saturday and then repeated the feat at AFC Sudbury Reserves on Tuesday.
Now Cowen believes the scene is perfectly set for tomorrow’s big clash.
“We’re really looking forward to it,” he said.
“It’s going to be a big test but if we play to our best and work hard for each other, we’re certainly capable of winning.
“Coggeshall have a really good squad but hopefully we can give them a good game and don’t let ourselves down.
“From our perspective, the table doesn’t lie and in terms of promotion, we probably haven’t been good or consistent enough.
“It’s going to be a big ask to make the top three.
“Having said that, it’s our first season at this level and hopefully we can finish strongly.
“We want to finish as high as possible and then we can look to improve and hopefully push on next season.”
Ray Turner and Gary Mcilwaine scored at Downham, while Terry Rymer netted twice against Sudbury.
The striker also missed a penalty.
“We didn’t play particularly well but I can’t have any complaints, after winning the game and keeping another clean sheet,” said Cowen.
“Sudbury have got a young side but they play some decent football and knock the ball around well.
“To go there and win, despite not being at our best, was really pleasing.”
Holland will be without Chris Ribchester against Coggeshall.
