NEW manager Jake Hutchings says he doesn't think a revolution is required in Braintree Town's style of play, but there are some "tweaks" that Iron fans may notice as he starts to make his mark on the side.

Hutchings has taken the reins as player/manager after the departure of former boss Glen Driver and will take charge of his first home game on Saturday when the Iron host Southern League premier division south side Yate Town in the FA Trophy third qualifying round (kick-off 3pm).

His first game in charge wasn't the result he or his team were hoping for as they were beaten 6-2 at Welling United in Vanarama National League South last weekend, but Hutchings said they would be working hard in training this week ahead of the Trophy action.

And he has already identified ways that he feels the team can improve and gain the consistency that he wants to see.

“There have been times this season when we’ve had glimpses of both sides of this team," he said.

“One week we have performed miracles and looked capable of beating the best teams in this league - like at Hemel Hempstead two weeks ago - and then another week – like at Welling last weekend – we have dropped off.

“It has been inconsistent and I want that to change.

“We want to work with the boys to see more of the good results and make us more consistent to get us up the table.

“I want to see those strong performances on a regular basis.

“There are a few tweaks that we will make in training sessions we have and it will be a process over the weeks that I feel we will see the benefits of.

“We have played quite an expansive brand of football from day one where we have often been all-out attack.

“That’s been great if we’ve got the first goal as we’ve then looked capable of hitting teams for three or four, but when we have conceded first, we have looked capable of being hit for three or four ourselves.

“We want to still play an attacking brand, but we have to become harder to beat.

“I don’t see anything wrong in a workman-like performance where you sometimes beat a team 1-0.

“We won’t take anything away from the team and we will keep looking to pass out from the back, but I feel we have been naïve at times and I want to cut that out.

“The philosophy of the team is something we want to carry on with, but I believe we can make minor improvements with the way that we play.

“Just realising that we don’t need to go all guns blazing; we can build into a game and choose when we win a game.

“It’s not a case of ripping up what we have done so far, but we will make subtle changes."
