“It’s going to be a very tough game”

Assistant manager Danny Webb spoke with the media ahead of Saturday’s big National League clash with Barnet, live on TNT Sports.

He began by expressing his delight on the news that Armando Dobra and Ryheem Sheckleford have secured new deals with the club, saying: “It’s been a busy week, for sure.

“Getting Armando [Dobra] signed up for the next couple of seasons is a big one for us.

“’Dobs’ has been one of our brightest sparks this season and the supporters love him, it’s always great for the fanbase to maintain one of their heroes.

“He’s a great talent and when the gaffer brought him in, I think it was for the here and now but also an investment into the future. He’s got big ambitions and we’re really pleased for him.

“With Sheckleford he’s certainly earned the deal. We’re very pleased for him, the supporters love him.

“He’s a proper defender but he can get forwards too. He’s a real talent and he’s learning.

“I think there’s still room for improvement too. He’s got attributes we can improve, as have all our players.

“He’s already a great player but he wants to get better and we’ll be working hard to help him do that.”

Webb also touched on the return of Bailey Hobson and Bailey Clements.

“We’re glad to see them both come back,” he said. “They’ve both been doing very well out on loan and we’ve been very impressed with them.

“Both players are match fit and ready to go, which is great. If called upon, they’re both ready to go and fit straight in; I think they’ve benefited massively from going out on loan so it’s been successful.

“Two cracking lads and they bring stuff to the changing rooms too which is always a big help.”

Finally, Webb previewed the big trip to Barnet. He said: “It’s going to be a very tough game.

“We’re going down there looking for three points despite how tough an task that’s going to be.

“It’s a big game, you can’t shy away from that, but we’ll treat it no differently.

“We don’t really see it any differently to any other game, we’re just taking every game as it comes and we’ll be simply looking to play our best and try to win the game.

“We’ve increased the gap since we last played them. Let’s get it straight, though, we’re one bad run away from them having the opportunity to catch us so we can’t take our foot off the gas.

“We have to stay on it, we’ve won nothing yet.”
