BRIAN LITTLE has called upon his players to begin their Blue Square Premier campaign with a bang as he bids to prove his doubters wrong.
The Dragons boss plans to name an attacking line-up for today’s Racecourse clash against Stevenage Borough in his quest for an opening day victory that will send out a positive message.
“It goes without saying that we are picking a side we think can win the game,” said Little yesterday. “We certainly don’t want to lose, but against a team everyone seems to be tipping to be there or thereabouts at the end of the season we will be looking for a positive performance.
“I’m not sure what the expectation levels are amongst our own supporters, but from what I’ve heard and read from commentators is that many of them are tipping us to be a top-six side.
“Very few if any have got us down to win the league, so it’s an interesting challenge and one to which we must rise. Whatever happens, though, win, lose or draw tomorrow it is not going to dictate what the rest of the season holds either for us or Stevenage.”
