MALDON and Tiptree assistant boss Jody Brown wants his players to keep a lid on their confidence – despite roaring back to form by demolishing Harlow.

The Ryman League division one north leaders put their recent dip in form behind them by thrashing the Hawks 9-1, on Saturday.

And they demonstrated that they still had that winning touch when they beat Potters Bar Town 3-2 at home on Tuesday night.

And while delighted to get back on the victory trail, Brown believes his side need to keep their feet on the ground.

“It’s a result that will undoubtedly give us confidence,” said the former Tiptree United manager, who is right-hand man to boss Terry Spillane.

“Now we’ve got to manage that and make sure we don’t become over-confident, as undoubtedly happened earlier in the season.

“It’s a natural feeling, especially when you win so many games on the spin.

“But football’s all about setting fresh challenges and striving for new goals and that’s what we’re trying to do now.

“I admit we took our foot off the gas, but I believe we’ve turned a corner and the pedal is now firmly back on the floor.”

Maldon are preparing for a trip to mid-table Chatham on Saturday.
