Brennan's Tudors Intent On Staying The Course

Hemel Hempstead find themselves in the Vanarama National League South play-off places - and manager Dean Brennan is determined to stay there.

Back-to-back wins have lifted the Tudors into seventh place after an up and down first few months of the season. Watch Hemel Beat Oxford City Here.

This weekend they head to East Thurrock United looking to, at the very least, cling on to their position in the promotion pack.

Brennan says a big defensive improvement is behind their upturn in fortune but he knows they will have to be at their best to return from Essex with anything to show for their Saturday afternoon.

He said: “We’re getting better, it’s been a bit of a slow build but there are real signs of improvement.

“We have now let in only one goal in three games so from that point of view we have got to be happy.

“Defensively we are find our form and we are taking our chances. Long may that continue but we are going to a difficult place this weekend.”

This will be Hemel’s last league game until November 11 because of others’ FA Cup commitments and the manager needs his players to make the most of it.

After beating Eastbourne away 2-0, and Oxford City at home by the same scoreline there is new found belief at Vauxhall Road following a rocky spell.

“East Thurrock are a good side,” confirmed the manager. “They will be wanting to go ahead of us in the table and we’ve got to try and not let that happen.”
