Redbridge bosses Dave Ross and Ricky Eaton hope they can keep up the momentum with another win this weekend when they host Ryman South high-flyers Whyteleafe in the FA Trophy.

The Motormen are full of confidence after four wins have seen them rise up to 17th in the table having spent much of the campaign at the bottom of the pile.

That included a ‘smash and grab’ 2-1 win over Aveley on Tuesday and both bosses are keen to make the most of their purple patch by bagging £2,500 prize money against a team that’s currently second in the Ryman South.

“We can’t wait for the Whyteleafe game and hopefully we can get a result because the club could certainly do with the revenue,” said Ross.

“Momentum is everything and the boys have definitely got belief.

“We have got a great spirit in the dressing room here irrespective of the results we have had. When you have the momentum and winning games that spirit is lifted and at the moment we are absolutely buzzing.”

And joint boss Eaton added: “They are doing really well in the Ryman South and it is going to be tough.

“But we have got the momentum behind us and we have high hopes of getting through.”
