It’s getting to that stage of the season now where we have to perform, keep our standards and apply pressure on the team at the top, says Greenwich Borough boss Gary Alexander
GREENWICH BOROUGH manager Gary Alexander says he knows exactly what to expect at Croydon tomorrow.
The club travel to Croydon Sports Arena for a game in Southern Counties East Football League, having lost 1-0 there in the Challenge Cup on 3 February.
Greenwich Borough remain in second-place in the table on 53 points from 24 games, six points adrift of leaders Hollands & Blair, but with two games in hand on Paul Piggott’s side.
Alexander’s side thrashed Canterbury City 4-0 last weekend and the former Millwall ace said: “A good response against Canterbury - after an under par performance against Cray Valley - was the perfect was to bounce back.
“It’s getting to that stage of the season now where we have to perform, keep our standards and apply pressure on the team at the top.
“Going to Croydon tomorrow will be no different having been there two weeks ago in the cup. We know exactly what to expect.
“Our performance has to better if we are to come away with three points against a well-organised team and a tough ground to play at.”
Croydon striker Karl Douglin has scored 26 goals this season, while Greenwich Borough’s leading marksman Mohammed Eisa has scored one more.
