Welling v Basingstoke

Welling manager Andy Ford has backed his team to make it three wins from three games against Basingstoke on Saturday.

The Wings have maximum points from their first two games, and positive Ford sees no reason why they cannot make pocket all three points.

"I think we've got be positive and that means making it three wins in a row," said Ford.

"You can't take anything for granted we don't know what Basingstoke will be like but we've got to make sure that we've got enough."

Ford believes there is still room for improvement and also wants his side to sharpen up their defending.

"We followed on well from the win at Bath," he added. "It was important that we did that because we didn't want to waste what we did on the opening day.

"I was pleased with another clean sheet but we were a bit naive at the end against Braintree and that needs to be sorted out."

As for any chance of Welling's players getting carried away with their impressive start, Ford quickly replied: "Not with me in charge, no."

Ford welcomes back defender Frankie Chappell from suspension to his 18-man squad for the Basingstoke clash.
