Steve Newing says he is convinced Enfield Town will improve in the Ryman Premier this season
11:48am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in Sport
Enfield Town remain unbeaten at home this season after Saturday's 3-1 win against Thamesmead Town and Steve Newing praised his side’s ruthlessness in the victory.
Goals from Adam Wallace, Tyler Campbell and Liam Hope sealed a comfortable win for Enfield, who have taken ten points from their four matches at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium.
Newing had criticised his side for not taking their chances in previous games but he was pleased with his attackers after an impressive display on Saturday.
He said: “We played well once again, the only difference was that on this occasion we were a little bit more ruthless in front of goal.
“We scored three and also hit the post and their goalkeeper pulled off a number of good saves.
“I think what really made the difference was that five of our six attacking players were at the top of their game.
“The two wingers were very good and Adam Wallace did a good job holding the ball up for us, he also took his goal very well.
“The only annoyance on Saturday was the fact the goal we conceded came, yet again, from a set piece and that is something we will need to work on.”
He added: “Ten points from a possible 12 at home is a very good return for us.
“If we are able to keep that form going throughout the season, maybe winning 13 and drawing a few, then that will put us in a strong position.
“We will pick up points away from home throughout the campaign as well but making sure we are good at home gives us a good platform to build on.”
Enfield currently sit 12th in the early table despite a tricky start to the season.
The Towners have faced four sides who have been tipped to challenge near the top of the table and Newing is pleased with the encouraging start his side have made.
He said: “We could have had an easier start to the season and we have played a few of the clubs that I expect to be near the top of the table at the end of the campaign.
“While our start has been fairly difficult, other teams have had tougher starts and that is why the likes of Canvey Island, who usually challenge for the play-offs, are currently near the bottom of the table.
“But we are in a better position than at this stage last year and we are definitely a better side. I am convinced we will do better this season than we did last season.”
Enfield, who took on Redbridge in the Ryman League Cup last night and won 3-1, face Canvey Island in Ryman Premier action on Saturday before travelling to Bury Town next Tuesday.
