DESPITE a weekend defeat to Burnham Ramblers, Barking boss Steve Munday remains happy with the progression of his side since taking over at Mayesbrook Park, writes MATT DINER.

Barking lost 3-1 at Burnham on Saturday, but Munday preferred to look at the bigger picture.

"I am pretty happy with how things have gone so far to be honest," he said.

"I wanted nine points from 12 and although we lost at the weekend, that target is still obtainable."

The Blues don't have a fixture until early January and Munday is determined their poor display in the first half on Saturday is not repeated.

"Our performance in the opening period was abysmal and the worst since I have been here," he moaned.

"The second half was very good but we can't go three-down at half-time away from home and expect to get anything from the game.

"The second half, however, set the standard from now and they played well, it would be nice from now on if the lads turned up at 3pm and not at four!"

The Blues were, at times, poor defensively and Munday is delighted that a new signing at Mayesbrook Park will add experience to his back-line.

"I'm looking to bring in one more signing, a defender and he will hopefully sign before Christmas," said the boss.

"Bradley Widdlington has played for Eton Manor and Tilbury and he will bring experience. He will dominate the back four, we do need a leader back there and he offers us that.
