Feeney: “We’re in a good position and we’ll keep it going”
Wings boss Warren Feeney is confident his side will convert draws into wins after a succession of three stalemates in the league.
Welling United are unbeaten in six league games, but have shared the points with Havant & Waterlooville, Dover Athletic and Hampton & Richmond Borough in recent weeks and Feeney has no concerns that the difference-making goals will come as he looks ahead to Saturday’s clash with St Albans City at Park View Road.
“We’ve had a lot of chances in games,” he said.
“We’re six unbeaten no matter how you look at it and I want to turn those draws into wins, but I would be worried if we weren’t creating chances.
“It’s fine lines. They will go in. When you look at the games, Havant – we hit the post and they go up the other end and score. Dover – we had enough chances to win the game. Hampton – Payney had a great chance with a header.
“You have to be there to miss those chances and we are creating them. If we weren’t creating them, I would be worried.”
“We keep it going, we’re still in a good position,” continued Feeney.
“As I’ve said, it’s a new team and there’s probably expectation levels from the start we’ve had, but we keep our feet on the ground and that’s the joys of football, you don’t know what’s around the corner.”
Asked about Saturday’s opponents, Feeney expects another tough test against another side with a recent change in the dugout.
“It’ll be a tough game,” he explained.
“David Noble was a good player in his day I played against him many a time, he wants to play the right way so it’s great to see he’s been given the chance.
“They had a great result the other night against 10 men which is always hard, so they’ll be coming to us full of confidence, but we’re at home so we’ve got to make sure we start on on the right foot and keep the unbeaten run going.”
Meanwhile, Feeney confirmed that his squad remains in good shape, with some fringe players getting minutes into the legs during a 2-0 friendly win at Maidstone United on Tuesday.
“The squad is in good shape. We’ve had a few niggles and had a game this week at Maidstone for the players that haven’t played. It was a good run-out and a good result which I was pleased with because the boys approached it with the right attitude.
“Everyone is champing at the bit to play and that’s what you want. There’s a good vibe about the place on and off the pitch.”
