Webb eyes return to “free-flowing football”

Danny Webb says the side must remain focused on Saturday’s game and get back to playing free-flowing football against Dagenham & Redbridge.

Speaking to the media, he said: “We’ve only lost two games so far, but some of the games we’ve won or drawn haven’t been classics. I hope we can get back to that free-flowing football that everyone has been talking about.

“Before kick-off at Eastleigh, we were fifth, we’re now second. The league can change so quickly. We’ve got to be on our game, we’ve got to keep our discipline and we’ve got to limit the risks we take while also playing that free-flowing football to get the supporters off their seats.”

Giving his thoughts on the opposition, Webb said: “I’ve watched them a few times, they’ve got some very good attacking options. It will be a tough game; I think games like this the first goal is very important. We need the whole crowd behind us.

“Their manager will certainly have them set up to cause us some problems, that’s for sure.”

Webb gave an update on some of the injured players, saying: “I think it will be a couple of weeks before Gaving [Gunning] returns to training. He’s got a problem with his calf/shin. He will certainly be out for the next couple of games.

“Manny Oyeleke will be assessed before tomorrow; he’s an excellent player and he makes us tick at times. He’s nearly there. From what I’ve seen over the season, if he’s not quite there it can affect him, he needs to be fully ready to play.

“Jim Kellermann took a big whack on his hip at Maidenhead and he’s still feeling it, but he will be available for tomorrow after coming through Eastleigh okay.”
