BARKING manager Steve Munday has warned his team not to take Mauritius Sports lightly when they take on the league's bottom side on Saturday, writes Matt Diner.

The Blues hammered Clapton 3-0 in their last Essex Senior League encounter and although their east London opponents have won only twice all season, the Blues boss remains wary.

"We cannot afford to underestimate them," he said.

"I saw them against Romford and they created a few chances and not too long ago they beat Burnham Rambers.

"They are a good footballing side and I think they have brought in a couple more players."

Munday, however, has confidence his side can register the win, if they start strongly.

"I want us to start exactly as we did against Clapton," he said.

"We scored three goals in the first 12 minutes and from then on we were in control and I want the same this Saturday.

"We have to be in their faces from the off and if we play to our best, I am confident we will do well.
