BARKING coach Neil Day wants his players to treat every remaining game like a cup final, writes Matt Diner.

The Blues have five matches remaining in their Essex Senior campaign, starting with a trip to Newham on Saturday to face London APSA.

"We're looking to win every game we take part in and we have said to the players to treat the rest of the league games this season like a cup final," he said.

"We have to stay focused and make sure we finish as high as we possibly can.

"London APSA are towards the bottom of the league, but we cannot be complacent because every team down there can be dangerous as they have something to prove.

"That said, if we play at our best, then I do expect us to win the match."

Barking have been finding the net on a regular basis at the moment and after struggling to keep the opposition out, Day is confident improvements have been made.

"We have been good at finding the net of late and I think, to be fair, we have played well defensively," he said.

"There haven't been many, if any, heavy scores against us like the start of the season and now conceding one goal hurts them back there and I like to see that.
