Ware’s late equaliser at Thurrock on Thursday night, means Needham Market are still in with a chance of a play-off place.
A big win over Saturday’s visitors to Bloomfields, Chatham Town, and defeat for Thurrock at Tilbury would see Mark Morsley’s side sneak into the final play-off place.
“It’s a long shot but don’t you just love football,” Morsley said.
“We need a six-goal swing, but that’s not impossible and I know for a fact there is no love lost between Tilbury and Thurrock.
“Quite simply if Thurrock were to lose by two, we would need to win by four because our goal difference is not as good as theirs.

“Yes, it’s a long shot, but we’ll be putting out a very attacking side on Saturday. It could well be quite an afternoon.”
Needham’s play-off hopes are hanging by a thread but the bottom line is . . . stranger things have happened.

“I know the fans at Bloomfields will come and support us well again,” Morsley added.
“Coming back to Needham Market as manager was like coming home I suppose.
“It felt as though I had done a tour of Suffolk via Subury and Leiston and ended up back here.
“This is where I feel at home. It would be great to reach the play-offs.
“The team just need to remain focused on our game and let everything else take care of itself.”
