Mildenhall Town manager Dean Greygoose has fired an ominous warning to the rest of the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division, insisting there is more to come from his table-topping side.

The west Suffolk side head to Hadleigh United this afternoon top of the pile on goal difference from Stanway, Rovers who have also played three more games than them.

Mildenhall won their seventh straight league game, 7-1 at bottom club Clacton last weekend and have scored an impressive 35 goals in 12 games.

Despite that, Greygoose still wants more ahead of his side’s trip to the Millfield.

“This is the best squad technically I have ever had and the desire from every single player is fantastic,” said Greygoose.

“We have improved massively on last season and are winning games now that we would have drawn or lost then.

“We are doing OK although I still don’t think we are ruthless enough

“It sounds a bit flippant but I don’t think I have found my best 11 yet and we are nowhere near our best.

“Apart from the Newmarket Town game we have always won our matches by more than one goal but I don’t think we are firing on all cylinders yet

“I am hoping for more but then perhaps that’s just me asking too much.

We are a step five non-league club, we have to remember that, but some of the stuff we produce in warm-ups and training, if we can do that in games we will win more often than not.”

Today’s opponents have endured a difficult start to the season under new boss Stuart Alston and lost 4-1 at Mildenhall last month.

“We played them early in the season and they really stuck at it,” recalled Greygoose.

“Their goalkeeper had a blinder that day and they worked hard and have some good youngsters in their squad.

“We will treat them with respect and when we played them, they had a spell after we went 1-0 up where they could have equalised, so we won’t take them lightly.”

Former Crewe Alexandra goalkeeper Greygoose added: “Every game is a cup final against us, even more so because we are top of the league.

“If we can control the tempo, be disciplined and play the way we train, then we have a good chance of getting a positive result.”
