LUKE Gullick is confident of opening his account for Swindon Supermarine at basement boys Beaconsfield SYCOB on Saturday.

The former Calne Town striker has been in cracking form in his first four games for Marine, but has seen his attempts to get off the mark thwarted by good goalkeeping and dubious refereeing decisions.

The Hunts Copse outfit are currently fourth in the Southern League Division One South and West and Gullick is loving life at his new club.

He said: "It's brilliant here and I'm really enjoying the challenge of making the step up. Although I've not got off the mark yet, I've come close and had one goal disallowed.

"We've not lost since I joined and I'm just trying to work hard and play well - it doesn't matter who scores as long as the side keep winning.

"We look to play passing football from the back and although my old club Calne used to try and play, there is definitely a difference. The standard's better and you get less time on the ball in attacking areas."

Gullick, who switched Wiltshire teams at the end of December, is confident of making up ground on leaders Bashley this Saturday and thinks Marine are well equipped to sustain a title challenge.

He said: "Since I've been here I haven't seen a side better than ours in the league and obviously everyone's confident at the moment.

"We've a strong squad and there is massive competition for places. We're looking forward to continuing our good form, but need to make sure that we take each game as it comes."
