Michael Frew wants more of the same at Lowestoft Town

Striker Michael Frew has hit the ground running since joining Lowestoft Town – and hopes things will continue in a similar vein at Tooting and Mitcham United on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

The former King's Lynn and Corby man has hit two goals in three starts since joining the Trawlerboys at the end of January.

While Town remain unbeaten in the league since early September, a run of three consecutive draws has proved less than satisfactory for the Ryman Premier Division promotion chasers – including the weekend's 1-1 stalemate with Hastings United at Crown Meadow

But Frew – the man who scored Town's second half equaliser – is not worried, even with the trip to leaders Sutton United following on Saturday.

'We have got some tricky games away coming up, but sometimes it's easier to play away,' said Frew. 'At home we're expected to win and if you draw away you're happy.

'It will be hard on Tuesday but we've got the players, we've got to knuckle down. We didn't play badly on Saturday. Obviously everyone is disappointed because it's a draw and we should have won. But the confidence is still good.'

Despite struggling in 16th place, Tooting have lost just once in five matches at Imperial Fields.

It will be 'touch and go' whether striker Lee McGlone returns at Tooting, after suffering whiplash in a minor car accident on Friday night, while Matt Nolan is recovering well from an Achilles injury.

Frew's goal on Saturday was his second in four appearances – a run he hopes to continue.

'I was definitely happy to get the goal on Saturday, I just wanted to push on with the win really,' said Frew. 'I am settled in nicely. Luckily I knew some of the boys before I came here and even the lads that I don't know have welcomed me.

'Playing is the main thing and scoring as well is even better, and I'm enjoying it. At the minute it's two goals in four games, so if I can get 10 from 20 here I'll be happy.'
