BRAINTREE Town manager George Borg insists he is ‘working very hard’ to get results – and is determined to get them back to winning ways.

The Iron have managed just one point in their previous eight games in Vanarama National League South and were beaten 6-0 at Dulwich Hamlet, last weekend.

Borg took over in the hot seat at Cressing Road at the beginning of last month after the departure of player-coach Jake Hutchings, whom he had been assisting.

The experienced boss, who led Braintree to promotion to National League South in 2006, says he is doing everything he can to turn their fortunes around.

Borg said: “I’m working very hard to try and get results.

“The Braintree supporters know that; they understand what I bring.

Lee Harding is doing what he can and is setting out the budget accordingly.

“I’ve done my management and now for me, it’s more about coaching these days.

“I’ve been doing a lot of work at Gillingham with Steve Evans.

“I’ve stepped in because I have a great friendship with Lee Harding and I’ve known him for 30 years.

“For me, it’s about stepping in and helping out and doing my best for Braintree Town.”

Braintree play host to Tonbridge Angels this weekend, looking to bounce back following their heavy defeat at Dulwich Hamlet, last weekend.

“We got out of the blocks quickly and started well,” added former Enfield Town boss Borg.

“We hit the bar and could have been one or two goals ahead early on.

“But after that, the boys didn’t perform and they know that.

“We think we’re closing the gap but there were some players who weren’t at the races and got caught out quite a bit.

“Dulwich are a good side and I think they’re in a false position at the moment."
