Complacency warning as Marketmen face strugglers

Have your say

NEEDHAM Market manager Danny Laws has warned his players against complacency, as he aims to keep the club’s recent unbeaten run intact, starting tomorrow with the visit of basement side Ilford (3pm).

The Marketmen stretched that run to four matches in Ryman League Division One North on Saturday with a hard-fought 1-1 draw away to Tilbury as Bradley Barber’s 61st minute strike cancelled out Emiel Aitken 16th minute opener to rescue a point for Laws’ men.

They now face the visit of strugglers Ilford tomorrow before Tuesday’s match against mid-table Waltham Abbey (7.45pm) also at Bloomfields and although Laws is confident of maintaining their unbeaten run he is fully aware of the dangers each side poses.

“You are always looking to take maximum points at home,” he said.

“It is a great chance for us to maintain our recent form. We are confident of doing that but we are also guarding against complacency.

“Ilford have nothing to lose, they play open football so we will have to defend well and try and punish them when we can.

“We are expecting a tough time against Waltham Abbey, we know they will have a real go which bodes well for a great game.”
