BARKING boss Steve Munday has set his side the difficult challenge of winning their next three games, starting this weekend against in-form Burnham Ramblers, writes MATT DINER.
The Blues take on a Ramblers side who have lost only one of the last seven, and although they have fixtures against high-flying Hullbridge and Romford still to come, the Blues manager has great belief in his improving team.
"These are really big games for us," he said. "These three sides are there or there abouts towards the top of the league and if we can get nine points it will be a great turnaround."
Munday has made an encouraging start at the helm, winning two and losing one since taking over from Dave Ross and although more than pleased with his start, he was quick to praise those around him.
"It has gone as well as I'd hoped it would," he smiled. "The players have been excellent. I gave them Thursday and Saturday off, but they actually rang me up, asking if they could train on Thursday, so we did.
"The coaches have been very good as well."
Munday recently added young midfielder Matthew Knight from Billericay to his highly motivated squad and the Blues boss was more than happy with his new signing.
"He is only young but he will actually give us a little bit of experience," he said.
"Johnny Bennett (his assistant) tells me he is a very good player, who will give us some bite in the middle of midfield. He had played a couple of games for Billericay, but has come to us to play more first team football.
