Maidstone United manager Harry Wheeler says ruthless people get to the top in life

By Craig Tucker

Harry Wheeler wanted Maidstone be more ruthless in their Kent Senior Cup win against Dover's academy boys.

The Stones won 4-2 at the Gallagher Stadium last night but Wheeler wasn't overly impressed.

He said: "I like to be ruthless on every single occasion and take advantage of every occasion.

"The most ruthless people are the people who get to the top in life.

"I don’t feel we’ve got enough of that at the moment.

"It’s not a game to go mad at them because you win the game, so the only person they let down is themselves.

"We win the game, we go through but they’ve got to have a little bit more fight.

"There’s lads in there that have it and there’s lads that don’t, and the ones that we thought did have it, showed it."

Wheeler singled out Ollie Muldoon, Jack Doyle and Jake Cassidy for praise and felt Gold Omotayo grew into the tie.

The fact Maidstone were playing an academy side was no excuse to take it easy.

Wheeler said: "I want to win everything and I want to do it clinically.

"The last club I was at we won the treble because we played our strongest side in every single thing.

"We played every other day for 20 days in the end and still played our strongest side.

"That’s how we want to be and that’s the mentality we need to install."
