BRAINTREE Town manager George Borg is trying to add more players to his squad as he attempts to turn his side’s fortunes around.

The Iron boss is keen on bringing ‘three or four’ new players into his squad in time for this weekend’s home clash with Tonbridge Angels.

Borg, who took over from Jake Hutchings in the Braintree hot seat last month, wants to beef up his squad as they prepare for some big challenges ahead.

Borg said: “I’m trying to bring three or four new players this week, if I can.

“We need to bring those players in.

“You can’t take this league lightly; it’s a strong, tough league.

“It’s a big boys league and I’m working as hard as I can to bring players in.”

Borg is looking for an immediate response from his players following their 6-0 thrashing at Dulwich Hamlet, last weekend.

The Iron, who sit 16th in the National League South table, are without a win in nine matches.

They have not tasted victory since beating Hemel Hempstead Town 3-0, on November 9.

“It’s been a testing time,” said Borg.

“It’s been hard on the lads, with what’s been going on, with trying to bring players in and players leaving.”

Borg has praised Braintree’s supporters for their backing of the team, despite their recent disappointing results.

He believes they can play their part in helping the Iron claim a much-needed victory this weekend, against a Tonbridge side who three points – and two places – below them in the table.

Borg added: “It’s a massive game for us on Saturday.

“The supporters have been massive for us since I came back and I’m sure that they can play their part again.

“We’ll regroup and do everything we can to get a result.”
