BRAINTREE Town manager Brad Quinton says Hemel Hempstead are another Vanarama National League South side who his Iron team “owe one to” and they will be looking to set a record straight on Saturday.

A kamikaze six-minute spell early in the second half in the reverse fixture at the Tudors in September saw the Iron surrender a lead as they conceded three goals on their way to a 4-3 defeat.

Quinton is aiming for revenge when Hemel visit the IronmongeryDirect Stadium at the weekend in a similar way to how they did when beating East Thurrock United 4-0 at home two weeks ago after losing 5-3 in the away fixture against the Rocks.

“We definitely owe one to Hemel after how the game ended at their place,” said Quinton.

“We need to put in a performance against them and it’s similar to how it was when we played East Thurrock.

“It was disappointing over at their place and we want to get something from the return fixture.

“We felt very frustrated to lose at Hemel Hempstead, but we’re looking forward to the battle this time on our own turf.

“Our training will be very thorough ahead of it and we’ll make sure we iron out things like not switching on and lack of concentration so we’ll be ready for it.

“We’re all good in terms of injuries so should be strong.”

One player who is unlikely to be in Braintree’s squad is midfielder Samir Bihmoutine, who has gone on loan to Bostik League premier division side Enfield Town.

Quinton said it was so Bihmoutine could gain fitness, but admitted that it was a move that may create space within his budget if he needed to bring a player into his squad.

The Iron boss added: “Samir has gone to Enfield on loan, but it is on a 48-hour recall.

“It is to get him game time to get him fully match fit and fair play to him as he volunteered to go, but there is also an element to it to allow us to look at bringing someone else in.

“It’s a bit of both really.

“Samir is an honest lad and we are looking at other people for other areas as we are always looking to strengthen where we can, but it has to be right for us.

“I’d say we are always looking around to bring someone else in, but we have to make sure it is the right thing for the group and we keep the continuity going.

“We have to look for that as it is a key thing for us.

“I’m very honest with them and the boys have to have their chance.”
