There’s more to come from Maidstone – even though they’re top of the league with a perfect record.

Stones go into the Bank Holiday weekend with four wins out of four in the Ryman League Premier Division.

But boss Jay Saunders said: “If anything, we’re not quite at it yet.

"I’m not sure I’ve got the balance of the side right. It might need some
tinkering. It might take one player to make us look more balanced, but I’m not quite happy yet. 

"It normally takes four or five games to get up with the pace of league football.”

Saunders is likely to make use of his big squad with two games in three days.

Michael Phillips returned from suspension against Hampton & Richmond Borough in midweek while James Rogers could be pushing for a start, having had limited involvement due to a foot injury. Striker Ashley Miller, meanwhile, is still waiting for international clearance.

First up are struggling Bury Town at the Gallagher Stadium on Saturday, then the Stones go to Tonbridge for a Bank Holiday Monday derby where they’ll be up against ex-United players, including Jerrome Sobers and Nathan Campbell.
