Bakers travel to Cressing Road on Saturday to take on Braintree Town Reserves as they look to continue climbing up the table.

Wetherall and his side currently sit fourth in the league but have four or five games in hand on their fellow title challengers.

“Braintree will be a good game and we look forward to that,” the boss said.

“We aren’t that good at home because of the pitch, so we’re forced to play in certain ways, but when we go away and play on better pitches we play really well.

“Performances breed confidence with this bunch, I now know we can do both sides of the game as we’ve seen lately they’ve had mix things up, with strikers playing in defence as players have been missing through injuries.

“These are things that every manager has to deal with but the team have dealt with that for me so I’m pleased with the squad and look forward to the game.”

The boss did reveal they will be forced into making some changes due to picking up injuries in their FA Vase defeat on the weekend.

“There will be forced changes with the FA vase game costing us with injuries.

“We picked up a split head, a groin injury and a broken toe, but we have a good squad so gives opportunity for players to get their shirt back.

“We know little about Braintree but with their pitch being a hundred times better than ours we will just go there looking to play our game and worrying about ourselves.”
