Hemel Hempstead Town will be looking to do playoff-chasing Concord Rangers a favour against Whitehawk on Saturday, according to Tudors boss Dean Brennan.
Hemel saw their dreams of a playoff spot ended by Bishop’s Stortford last weekend, but Brennan says that there is no danger of his side easing up against fifth-placed Whitehawk.
“We are going to try and do Concord a favour; I like the manager at Concord, he’s an old pal and I think he’s got a really good future as a manager,” said Brennan. “He’s a great young manager who has done fantastically down there.
“We will go to Whitehawk and compete. The biggest thing for us is that we are going there to play against Football League players – players like Sergio Torres, Scotty Nielson, John-Paul Kissock and Sam Deering.
“These are really, really good players and it will be a great test for our lads.
“Hopefully we will be up to the task and we can see where we are really at. There are three points up for grabs and we want to finish as high as we can up the table.”

Whitehawk currently sit four points above Concord with two games of the season left to play, and Brennan is targeting a clean sheet on Saturday as he looks to give Rangers a helping hand.
“Hopefully we can get another clean sheet; Tuesday’s against Boreham Wood was our 11th of the season,” he said. “The majority of these, if not all of them, have come away from home.”
The Hemel boss is already looking towards the 2015/16 campaign, and added: “We will make sure the structure is right for next season, and we will make sure that we are in contention come next season.
“We are looking forward to next season, really, we can’t wait now.”
