SOUTHERN LEAGUE: Webb talks up Evesham threat
SWINDON Supermarine manager Dave Webb has warned his players that Evesham are in a ‘false position’ ahead of the teams’ Southern League Division One South & West clash tomorrow.
Marine travel to the Jubilee Stadium to face a side that are sitting 19th in the table having won just one of their opening eight league games.
But Webb has urged his players not to be complacent as they target their third victory in a row and a possible return to the top of the standings.
“I think Evesham are in a false position. They have got games in hand and a lot of the games they have played have been tight affairs,” said Webb.
“With the players they have got they will pick up. I can’t see them being in danger at the end of the season.
“It’s a new ground and a nice place to go, it’s a good pitch and they try to get everything right the same as we do.
“It’s how a new ground should be and we will try and enjoy it, but we will only do that if we get a good result.
“I think we approach every game believing we can win it but at the same time not underestimating whatever team we play against.
“The confidence and quality we have gives both the players and management the thought we can win.”
Craig Curtis (groin) and Kyle Lapham (ankle) were due to be assessed last night, but Mani Randhawa looks likely to feature for Westbury as he continues to build his fitness following a pelvis injury.
Meanwhile, Chippenham chairman Neil Blackmore has revealed the Bluebirds are still on the hunt for reinforcements, Ahead of tomorrow’s game at home to Chesham, Blackmore has admitted a defender tops Chippenham’s list of transfer targets.
He said: “We know that we need a few key players to add the squad and nobody is working harder than Steve (Winter, boss) to make that happen.
“I think that our absolute priority is a central defender and we need to maybe even try to get one in before this weekend if we can.”
