MANAGER Glen Driver is calling on Braintree Town to make sure Cressing Road is their fortress.

The Iron host high-flying Dulwich Hamlet in Vanarama National League South on Saturday on the back of a run when they have won four and drawn one of their last six outings.

That has included back-to-back wins against Dorking Wanderers and Eastbourne Borough in their last two home games and Driver is keen to extend that when Dulwich visit at the weekend.

His team were handed a daunting start to the campaign by the National League South fixture planners, but the Iron boss is pleased with how they have done so far and is now looking for that run to continue.

He said: “Looking at the first ten games in the fixture list, I’d say that we’ve had the hardest start out of anyone in the division.

“It has been such a tough start.

“I always knew the league would be split into mini leagues and I believe that we can be in the middle part.

“From what I’ve seen so far, if we keep playing and can keep the players fit then we won’t be a million miles away.

“When we went to Concord Rangers (and drew 2-2 in midweek), they said what a good side we were with a strong game plan and I take that as a compliment.

“But we have to go again.

“Dulwich Hamlet is another tough game so it won’t get any easier.

“They will bring a good following and we have to make Braintree a fortress and make sure we keep picking up results at home.

“If we can win then we could find ourselves in the play-off positions and what an incentive that is.”
