BARKING boss Steve Munday believes his improving side can pick up 21 points from their remaining seven games, writes MATT DINER.

The Blues have picked up seven points from a possible nine of late and the Blues manager is keen to see the trend continue.

"I have set the lads a target and I believe they can reach it, 21 points is attainable," said Munday ahead of Saturday's match against an in-form Bowers & Pitsea, who hammered the Mayesbrook Park club 4-0 earlier in the season.

"It will be a tough game that is for sure, as they are a top side, but like I have said before everyone is beating everyone in this division. Things are looking up and it will be nice to show that we have improved from when they mullered us," he said.

It is unlikely a similar scoreline will be repeated, especially after the Blues drew 2-2 with high-flying Southend Manor last weekend.

"If I'm being truthful in the first half we were absolutely abysmal and they could have been four or five up," Munday said.

"I had a real go at them at the break and they came out in the second half and played the way they should have in the first. We totally outplayed them in the second half and to do that against a very good side is pleasing.
