We Will Stay Up If We Keep Playing Like This: Coventry

East Thurrock will win their relegation fight if they keep playing like they are.

That is according to manager John Coventry, who has given his views on the battle to avoid the drop in the National League South.

The Rocks are one of a number of sides involved in the scrap for survival.

They have just won back-to-back games for the first time this season and veteran boss Coventry says they are timing their rise perfectly.

He told the Thurrock Gazette that although they are still in the bottom three, they have now given themselves a fighting chance.

“We know that if we maintain our level of performance then we will get out of the situation we are in,” said the manager, whose side host Oxford City on Saturday.

“The players are showing fight and I can’t ask any more of the players at the moment.

“We created lots of chances at Truro and could have scored about six goals.

“We’re not taking all of our chances and we need to be more clinical.”
