Josh Mayhew, confident his side can get a good run going again after two recent defeats

Josh Mayhew is confident that Stowmarket Town have the qualities to beat any side put in front of them, writes Alex Moss.

Stow head into tomorrow’s home clash with seventh-placed Wroxham (3pm) still flying high in second place in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division table.

After seeing their nine match winning run end last week following defeats to promotion rivals Felixstowe & Walton United (Suffolk Premier Cup) and Coggeshall Town, Stow are looking to start another run this weekend.

But striker Mayhew, who scored his 30th goal of the season in the 2-1 defeat to Coggeshall last time out, expects Wroxham to pose a tricky test for the Old Gold and Blacks.

“I’ve really enjoyed it at Stow,” said Mayhew, who joined Stow from higher league Bury Town in the summer.

“Rick’s (Andrews, manager) brought in a few players at the start of the season and it has taken us a little while to gel.

“But now we’re a really strong unit, everyone is pulling in the right direction and, take away last week when we lost two games, I think we’re very hard to beat and I can’t see many teams beating us when we play the way we have been.

“Take away last Saturday’s game, I think Wroxham are the hardest team we’ve played this season.

“I was quite impressed with him, so I think it will be a really hard game for us. But I think we have improved a lot since we last played them.

“We did have chances towards the end and we could have got points from that game, but I’m confident we can win any game now, so hopefully we should get the three points.”

Andrews bolstered his squad with the loan signing of Ipswich Town teenager Ellis Murrell late last week, while Ace Howell made a surprise return as one of the substitutes for the defeat to Coggeshall last weekend.

Stow will hope their injury list can start to ease down, with the likes of Jack Baker, Craig Brand, George Bugg and Remi Garrett all having been unavailable in recent weeks.
