"This is one of the TOUGHEST places to come" admits Maynard
Stuart Maynard was delighted with his side following the draw away at Maidenhead United following a double header against the team from Berkshire that earnt Wealdstone four points.
His side held out for a valuable point in a game that could have been won by either team and Maynard stated that he was “happy to come away with a point on the road”.
“It’s a great point, this is one of the toughest places to come, you’ve seen them turn over some of the biggest sides in the league.” Maynard said. “I thought we were in no trouble until the second half. I thought we were very comfortable in the first half. We opened them up once we got beyond their low-block but we needed a bit more end product in the final third.”
“It’s so hard to play against a team twice so close together. Last week the end product was outstanding. We’re happy to come away with a point on the road.”
Following the Stones FA Trophy fixture away at Chelmsford City on Wednesday, a succession of three home, league games stand in the way of Maynard’s side and he’ll be hoping to come away with as many points as possible as his side look to carry on their outstanding form, having only lost one game in their last eight.
“Its massive [having three home games in a row] the fans have been outstanding this season so we always relish playing at home. We’ll be hoping to give them something to cheer about. Our main focus now is the cup game on Wednesday, it was a tough game [against Maidenhead] so our focus is recovery and then the game against Chelmsford.”
The result at the weekend keeps the Stones within one point of the play-off places and with three home games on the horizon, a huge opportunity arises to make a real statement to the rest of League.
“We have to take it one game at a time and not get ahead of ourselves. The lads are performing at a very high level and its credit to them to even be in and around it. The mentality has been excellent so far and we won’t look at the league table until the last ten games.”
