WHILE his team's battle to beat relegation may not be getting any easier, Braintree Town boss Danny Searle will not tolerate any white flag waving from any members of his Iron squad between now and the end of the Vanarama National League season.

Braintree are still sat bottom of the table following a 2-1 defeat at high-flying Solihull Moors last weekend and host Bromley on Saturday looking for a first home and away double of the season after beating the Kent side in the reverse fixture in October.

With the Iron 14 points from safety and just seven games to go, Searle knows every fixture could be crucial and isn't prepared for anyone to give up the fight just yet.

He said: "Looking at every game until the end of the season, there are going to be none where there is nothing to play for.

"So every game will be tough and hopefully we can get something from Bromley on Saturday to take into the next home game against Gateshead the week after.

"If there are any players who are going through the motions - regardless of whether we are safe or not - then they are not someone who I want involved with my team.

"I only want winners here and that means on and off the field for coaching staff as well as players.

"I want people who have a will to win.

"Of course there will be defeats, but the ultimate goal is to win and I feel we have a dressing room full of young enthusiastic players who do have that will to win.

"They know it will be tough but as long as points are on the table then they will keep fighting in every single game.

"It won't be that result at Solihull that relegates us if we do go down, but with the position that we are in, we know we can't afford to drop any points at all.

"That is disappointing but I'm looking at the character of the lads and the standard of the play that we are starting to put together.

"I feel we have added some consistency in terms of our work rate and ethic off the ball as well as on it and that stands us in good stead going forwards for the next seven games.

"When you have a group of young players like we have, a defeat that comes in the manner of the one at Solihull can be demoralising so we will pick them up again this week and go again against Bromley."

Kodi Lyons-Foster could be set for a return after missing the trip to Solihull Moors with an ankle injury.

Searle said he only narrowly missed last weekend's game, but was kept out as a precaution and would be assessed this week ahead of the visit of Bromley.
