CONCORD Rangers manager Adam Flanagan has targeted two more victories in order to stay in the National League South this season.

With nine matches remaining in the league, the Beach Boys are nine points above the drop zone and look set for a fifth straight season in the second tier of the non-league football pyramid.

They face one of their trickier remaining assignments tomorrow as they visit play-off outsiders Hungerford Town.

And Flanagan says he wants to get some more points on the board.

“I believe getting over the 40 points mark will be enough to retain our status in the league this season,” he said.

“And with the remaining fixtures I can’t see why this won’t be achieved and even bettered.”

Concord were beaten in the reverse fixture, with Hungerford running out comfortable 4-2 winners in the end.

And Flanagan was full of praise for the Berkshire outfit in their first season at this level, admitting he was not surprised at the form that currently sees them seventh in the standings.

“Hungerford have done very well this season but I have not been surprised as I thought they were one of the better teams we have played,” said the Beach Boys chief.

“They were organised and well drilled in the way they play but what impressed me the most was how hard they worked for one another.

“On the day they scored two great goals from distance and were well worth the win.”

But the Concord boss has backed his team to put in a stronger performance second time around, with Concord much improved since the turn of the year.

“I think it will be a tough fixture but I do believe we are stronger now than we were in the first fixture,” he said.

“It will be interesting to see if my statement is true in this return fixture.”
