Moore eager to maintain standards

18 September 2014

First team coach wants players to keep up their performance levels in Saturday’s match with Carlisle United.

First team coach Micky Moore wants our team to put in another good display and make it back-to-back league wins, when we entertain Carlisle United at One Call Stadium on Saturday.

We jumped up three places to 10th spot in Sky Bet League Two in midweek as frontman Alex Fisher came off the bench to give us a well-deserved 1-0 victory over Morecambe.

With the possibility of being able to jump into the play-off positions with another three points on Saturday, Moore is eager that our team don’t let standards slip.

“We felt on Saturday [at Wycombe Wanderers] that we should have got a win or at least a draw in that game, but we got nothing,” said our first team coach.

“On Tuesday it looked like it was going to be a draw, which we felt with the chances that we had, we deserved more, so to get the late winner was great timing and a good three points.”

He continued: “Overall, we’re happy [with the start we’ve made to the season] but we want to ‘kick on’ now and put back-to-back wins together.

“We beat Oxford and Newport and had back-to-back wins there, so if we can do that again in front of our own supporters that would be excellent.”

Nevertheless, Moore believes that nobody shouldn’t underestimate Carlisle United, just because currently occupy bottom position in Sky Bet League Two.

“We had them watched on Tuesday and the player/caretaker manager got sent-off,” said Moore. “They lost 1-0, but from the reports that we got back they played quite well, so it will be quite a difficult test.

“I know at the moment the league table says they are bottom, but they’re a big club with a big fan base and we don’t anticipate them being there at the end of the season.”

Yesterday, we confirmed that we had completed the signing of versatile youngster Reggie Lambe, subject to international clearance.

The 23-year-old, who was previously with Nyköpings BIS in Sweden, can operate in a variety of different positions, and Moore thinks he could prove to be an excellent acquisition.

“Reggie has been here on trial and we’ve seen him in a couple of games,” he added. “He’s one player that we highlighted. He’ll definitely add something different to us.

“He’s been playing in the MLS [Major League Soccer] and he’s a Bermuda international, so he’s a good player. We’re looking forward to working with him and I’m sure the supporters will be looking forward to seeing him play.”
