Harrow Borough boss not panicking despite poor start
12:40pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in Sport
Harrow Borough manager Dave Anderson insists he is not panicking despite his side sitting bottom of the Ryman Premier Division.
The Reds have made a poor start to the season picking up just two points from their opening six games. This has left Boro at the foot of the table but the experienced boss expects the team to climb out of trouble.
Anderson said: “We have got to look at the bigger picture and it’s not a concern yet.
“We’re not panicking because this is not something you associate with experience and it doesn’t get the job done.”
The Reds have had a difficult start to the season but Anderson still expected his team to have picked up more points from their opening matches, The Boro boss continued: “I looked at the first ten games and thought that getting ten points would not be the end of the world.
“But to have only taken two points from six games is disappointing.
“I don’t think it is a fair reflection on how we’ve played but it’s about results not performances. I would say we have been the better side in four of those matches but it doesn’t matter, that’s irrelevant. We need to get ourselves a result quickly.”
He added: “We are creating chances and not taking them. We missed two penalties and have been missing about four good chances every game which you just can’t afford to do.
“I think if we score one then we’ll go on to get a couple.
“If we get that first win then I think we’ll go onto get a few so we would just like to make sure it is sooner rather than later.”
Boro were beaten 2-0 at home to rivals Wealdstone on Saturday and again failed to find the target in Monday’s defeat at Met Police.
Anderson, whose side visit Leiston on Saturday, said: “I think we have been too pretty and soft. We need to get in behind teams earlier.
“We have great pace in the team but I don’t think we have managed to use it enough so far.”
