Lowestoft Town boss Ady Gallagher feels his side owe their supporters ahead of their Ryman League Premier Division clash at home to Harlow Town.

The Trawlerboys are yet to taste victory at Crown Meadow this season and tumbled out of the FA Cup against Histon – a performance which Gallagher branded 'unacceptable'.

The Blues have been more impressive on the road, registering three wins and a draw, and Gallagher knows if they can improve their home form then his side can shoot up the table.

'The table doesn't normally settle down for a while yet – we are not where we want to be but by the same token it could be worse,' said Gallagher, whose side sit in 14th place with a game in hand.

'We just want to get on a run and produce some consistency now. To be honest I think we owe our supporters at the Meadow.

'We haven't got the wins in the league that our performances have deserved and our performance against Histon was just nowhere near good enough.

'I'm not going to panic about it. We dominated long periods of the Sudbury and Needham Market games and the match against Tonbridge was very tight.

'We've relied heavily on our home form in the past and we want to make sure we make it uncomfortable for other teams to come here.

'We just need to keep doing the right things and the results will come.'

Lowestoft will have to do without Rory McAuley this afternoon with the centre half serving a suspension whilst Rossi Jarvis was withdrawn early in the win over Grays Athletic on Wednesday.

Jarvis is expected to be fit though as he was taken off as a precautionary although Shaun Bammant is ruled out.
