Bury St Edmunds’ head coach Gavin Hogg believes his side deserve the respect of their league rivals following a promising start to the season.

The newly promoted Habderden based outfit head to Tring tomorrow (3pm) on the back off successive victories, including a 49-24 success last time out against Thurrock, a second win in their first three matches.

And after seeing his side adjust well to life in the National Leagues, Hogg believes opponents should be more aware of his side’s threat.

“People probably didn’t know what to expect from us but hopefully we have gained a bit more respect and we will be looking to live up to those expectations,” he said.

“I’ve been very satisfied with our level of performances and I think the first six games or so will dictate our destiny in this division.

“We have an opportunity over the next three games to pick up another couple of wins and really put ourselves in a good position.”
