Murray: Hard work starts now

9 April 2013

Skipper Adam Murray believes that the hard work starts now as our side moved to the top of the Blue Square Bet Premier table with victory over Macclesfield Town.

Murray produced an outstanding performance and scooped the ‘Man of the Match’ award in our 3-1 win over the Silkmen, but has stated nobody is getting carried away.

He said: “If anyone got carried away now then it would be criminal.

“We’ve got a grounded bunch [of players] who work for each other and that’s not going to change. We’ve won nothing yet – we’ve just put ourselves in a great position.

“Our feet are on the floor. We’ll have a rest tomorrow then come in on Thursday ready to work again and do a professional job [at Braintree].

“We’re thinking about the next game and we only want three points. It’s what we’ve done all season, from the start until now.”

Since our defeat to Kidderminster Harriers in January, our side have been in a rich vein of form and have won an incredible 18 out of their last 20 matches.

During that run, we have scored a remarkable 51 times, won our last nine successive games on home soil, and averaged 2.7 points per game.

Murray continued: “I don’t believe there is anything that you can put your finger on and say: ‘This is why we’re winning!’ If you could, you would bottle it and sell it.

“We’ve got a good bunch of players and a good bunch of people. We’re all pulling in one direction and that’s a massive thing. At the minute we’re in our zone. 

“We know what it takes to succeed, and as long as we keep doing that and don’t take our foot off the gas, then hopefully we’ll pick up the points we need.

“We still need points to win this title and we’ll carry on doing the things that make us winners. That is working hard, working as a unit and doing everything we can.

“We knew that tonight was a big game for us and that we needed to get points to go into [Saturday’s game at Braintree Town] with a good mind-set.

“The performance was professional and at half-time, we knew [that] we had to see the game out and do things professionally and I think we did that.”
