FOOTBALL: Let's get meaner, says North Leigh assistant
North Leigh assistant boss Terry Merriman says they must stop shipping so many goals to feature in the promotion picture.
While putting away chances at the top end has not been a problem for the Millers, who start their campaign at home to Merthyr Town, Merriman says it is imperative they tighten up.
“We have to defend better,” he said. “We are a free-scoring side, but you can’t keep expecting to win games 5-4, because it’s going to go wrong.
“I don’t know the statistics, but over the last few seasons we have let in something like 60 goals a season.
“It’s not good enough if you want to put yourself in a play-off position.”
The Millers will be without Aaron Woodley (holiday) and Zak Westlake (wedding), while Conor McDonagh (knee) is an injury doubt.
IN: E Osborne-Ricketts, M Williams (both Didcot Tn), A Woodley (Abingdon Utd), M Woodley (Oxford Utd), K Sanders (Oxford City).
OUT: R Brooks (Ardley Utd).
North Leigh (v Merthyr Tn, home): from Warrell, Turk, Hole, Caton, M Woodley, Organ, Williams,Osborne-Ricketts, Alexis, Bowles, Else, J Walcott, Mills, Sanders, Dutton-Black.
