AFC Sudbury assistant manager Ian Brown insists that his side will not rest on their laurels in looking to maintain their impressive unbeaten run with a home win against struggling Brentwood Town tomorrow.

Sudbury have been in fine form this season and have lost just once in 19 league games.

The Yellows turned in a stunning display to beat Burnham Ramblers 4-1 on the road on Tuesday evening and Brown has been delighted with the way the squad have performed so far.

“We’ve done very well,” admitted David Batch’s right-hand man.

“As long as we continue to show the right attitude, with the correction preparation in a positive approach, then we’ll be striving to keep our unbeaten run going.

“Tuesday was really good for us.

“It was our fourth game against them this season and we’ve won all four – so I can’t praise the lads highly enough.”

As well as Tuesday’s emphatic win, Sudbury beat Burnham convincingly 3-0 in league duties earlier in the season as well as triumphing in the FA Cup (2-1) and League Cup (6-1) over their Essex opponents.

“Having already beaten them on three occasions this season, it could have been quite easy for the players to just turn up and expect to win the game,” added Brown.

“But they didn’t do that, they prepared the right way and put in a great display to win quite comfortably in the end.

“One thing that did disappoint us from the game was that we felt the penalty they scored from at the death didn’t look like a penalty from where we were standing.”

Sudbury go into tomorrow’s game against 18th-placed Brentwood with plenty of confidence – but will not underestimate their lowly-placed opponents as Brown explains.

“We beat them 2-1 at their place earlier in the season and it was a hard-fought victory,” said Brown.

“Their league position doesn’t really reflect where they should be because they’re a difficult team to play.

“Fortunately, we came through that game and will look to again on Saturday.

“The lads will have to be on their toes if we are to get all three points, which I think we’ve got a good chance of getting.

“We’re in quite a good place at the minute and want to keep going.”
