Redbridge joint-boss returns to former club tonight

Redbridge joint-manager Dave Ross says he is looking forward to returning to former club Tilbury tonight as the sides meet in the Ryman North.

Before taking charge at Oakside Stadium alongside Ricky Eaton, Ross enjoyed a spell coaching the Dockers.

And while he knows it will be strictly business tonight, Ross admits he will always have fond memories of his time with Tilbury.

“It’s always good to go back to a place where I enjoyed some good times. There are a lot of good people down there who I’ll look forward to seeing but hopefully we can return with a win,” said Ross.

The Motormen are still itching to end a run of 10 straight defeats in all competitions, with their latest loss coming away to league leaders Cray Wanderers last Sunday.

Redbridge’s fixture list is starting to look kinder over the coming weeks, starting with the journey to Chadfields tonight, and Ross has called on the team to take advantage and improve their form.

“Tilbury are a good side and we’ll probably start as underdogs. I have a great respect for them but they are not going to be of the same quality as Cray and Hornchurch, who we’ve played recently,” he added.

“They’ve done well in the league so far but they are not going to be as strong as those who will feature at the top of the league so it gives us a chance to compete better.”
