MANAGER Brad Quinton will ask his Braintree Town players to go back to doing what they do best when Truro City visit for a table-topping clash at the Iron tonight.

There was frustration for Braintree on Saturday when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Weston Super Mare, but they have a quick opportunity for redemption against a Truro side who sit just one place below them in the Vanarama National League South standings.

The Iron's weekend defeat saw them replaced at the top of the table and they head into tonight's game sat second, with Quinton wanting his players to learn from mistakes.

He was disappointed as they departed from their usual method of moving the ball quickly on the floor to advance up the pitch and switched to a long-ball tactic that didn't pay off against Weston Super Mare.

So the Iron boss is telling his players to stick to what has brought them success so far this year.

He said: “We went quite direct in the second half and I said to them afterwards that I didn’t know why that was.

“We move the ball much better than that and we didn’t do it at times in that game.

“I was just disappointed because we’re not like that.

“We were at the top (of the league) and maybe some of the youngsters felt a bit of pressure.

“It doesn’t work like that, but we will work hard and we will learn from it.

“We are where we through a lot of determination and hard work by a group of very talented young players.

“You can have an off half of football like we did – when you try to play direct – but that wasn’t like us and we will correct that.

“We have a good squad; they are young boys and they will learn from it.

“They accept what we have to do better and we’ll work at it.

“Our goal from the start of the season has been to move the ball and play with a high tempo in a certain way and I won’t let them change to any other way.

“But I’m pleased with the boys and where we are at this time in the season."
