Redbridge look to put Aveley result behind them at home to Wroxham

Redbridge supremo Dave Ross says it is a necessity that his side begin to get results, starting at home to Wroxham on Saturday.

The Motormen started March brightly with a draw at Ware sandwiched by home wins against Romford and Ross’ former club Tilbury.

But since their match with the Dockers Redbridge have lost all three games and have fallen back toward the drop zone, leaving their manager slightly concerned.

“It’s important to get points at this stage in the season. It would have been nice to even get just one against Aveley,” said the Oaksiders boss.

“Wroxham will be well up for the game too, looking to get point for their play-off challenge,

“There will be some changes from the Aveley game and hopefully it will be enough to help us turn it around.”

Redbridge go into this weekend’s clash looking to tighten up at the back having lost 7-0 against Aveley on Monday.

It means the Motormen have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine matches and Ross is demanding an improvement at the back.

““We’ll be working on defence in training. We need to pick the boys up after the Aveley result, but we’ll also be expecting a response come the weekend,” added Ross.

“We need to start getting points on the board or else we’ll be dragged back into the relegation fight. The Aveley game was one of those things that happens in football.”
