I’m very confident with the lads we have we can climb up the table and have a successful year, says Tonbriddge Angels' Barry Moore

TONBRIDGE ANGELS assistant manager Barry Moore says his side have the qualityin their ranks to come away from Burgess Hill Town with three points to kick-start their campaign.

The Angels are in a disappointing sixteenth-place in the Bostik Premier, having won two and drawn two of their seven league outings and Steve McKimm’s side travel to a Burgess Hill, a side a couple of places above them in the pecking order with nine points on the board.

“Today we go to Burgess Hill, who have a very good home record at home this season, I don’t think they have lost and we haven’t won away, so hopefully this will change,” said Moore.

“We are not playing badly, it’s just things are not quite happening in both boxes, so far.

“Ian Chapman has a different look to his side from the last two seasons in that he has more of a physical presence and with the new signing of (former Worthing manager and Tonbridge Angels defender) Gary Elphick, will help them even more.

“They will be a tough team to play against as it is a small pitch, so I’m sure we will get pressed quickly all over the park but that’s when the quality of our attacking players need to step-up and make the difference, which they have the ability to do.”

The Angels are 10 points adrift of big-spending league leaders Billericay Town and are five adrift of Harrow Borough, who occupy the final play-off berth but Moore is confident his side will make up ground.

“In regards to the season ahead, I don’t think at the moment we are in a position to think any further ahead than the next game but I’m very confident with the lads we have we can climb up the table and have a successful year.”
