BARKING manager Dave Ross wants three wins from his side's remaining three games but admits Saturday's match against in-form Eton Manor will be difficult, writes MATT DINER.
The Blues take on an Eton Manor side at Mayesbrook Park who have lost only two of their last 17 games, but Ross doesn't expect his side to roll over.
"It will be a very hard game," he admitted.
"But I want us to go out there and compete and, hopefully, we can turn them over. I want three wins from our last three games. We will certainly go out there and give it our all."
Ross demands results after watching his side slip up and draw 2-2 with third-bottom Beaumont in a game the Blues boss feels his side did enough to claim all three points.
"We definitely deserved to win and I'm disappointed we didn't," he moaned.
"But, at the end of the day, I can't keep saying that and it is the end result that matters although, to be fair, we are re-building for next season."
Once again injuries cost the Essex side and after losing Bradley Thomas once again to a groin injury the Blues also had Neil Matthews and Abraham Adejokun struggling with knocks.
Barking took the lead 10 minutes into the second half through Craig Greenwood and after working hard to do so Ross admits he felt his side would win the game.
"I definitely felt we'd go on to win," he said.
"One minute of stupidity cost us and they scored twice in 60 seconds."
Ross was quick to claim though that Beaumont are in a false position at the wrong end of the table.
"They are better than what their position suggests," he said.
"They are a gutsy side and they were happy walking away from here with a point.
