ANGELO Harrop was left satisfied with a point after his 100th game as Braintree Town boss ended in a 2-2 draw at Welling United, writes DAVID WARD.

Despite their second-half dominance, the Iron had to settle for a draw on a really heavy Park View Road pitch, in their National League South clash.

Harrop said: "I knew it would be a really tough game against a side fighting possible relegation and also a playing surface which I knew would be hard for us to play our style of football.

"So I'm pleased with a point which I think was a fair outcome of the game and the pitch is no excuse at the end of the day you have to adapt which I felt we did better in the second half.

"It's been a long journey since I came to the club 18 months ago and I think we have made real progress and the players we have now are a really good group, working for the team and the club and like today always show so much commitment, energy and determination.

"There's a great buzz around the place and I'm really proud to be the manager of this football club and we've achieved so much in my time here.

"We know there's still a long way to go this season and obviously everyone is working hard to maintain our current form and again make the play-offs which would be a wonderful achievement.

"This is the third successive away game against really strong, tough opposition and we've collected seven out of a possible nine points."

Braintree are unbeaten in ten games but Harrop knows there are more hard matches to come.

He added: "We've Slough at home next Saturday and they are a strong side, going well and we do owe them one as we didn't play well and lost at their place earlier.

"I hope as many fans will come to that game and support the team as they have today at this game in Welling.

"The vocal support from our fans at every game, home or away, has been tremendous this season and it does mean so much to the players."

Braintree will have experienced striker Alfie Pavey back from suspension for the Slough game.
