SAMMY Moore is confident that Concord Rangers can pick up a third consecutive win when they go head-to-head with East Thurrock United today.

The Beach Boys’ fine run of form started with a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture, at Rookery Hill, on Boxing Day.

Tyrone Sterling’s first minute header then allowed Concord to seal three points against fellow high-flyers Welling United and Moore is eager to register another three points in today’s local derby at the Aspect Arena.

The Beach Boys’ player-manager said: “I said to the boys that, away from the building, they need to look after themselves.

“They need to eat and drink well and recover really well.

“We know it will be a really tough game and East Thurrock drew 2-2 with Dartford on Saturday so that shows that they are no mugs.

“They’re going to try and get revenge after we beat them on Boxing Day.

“It will be tough, but if we’re on our game then it should be three points.

“But we need to turn up and make sure everyone is at it.

“We need to hit them levels after setting a standard.

“That’s a bar that we need to hit every game and we go into the game after a big win against Welling.”

Goals from Danny Green and Alex Wall allowed the Beach Boys to overcome 21st-placed East Thurrock on Boxing Day.

And Concord, who have gone through a long transitional period since Moore replaced Adam Flanagan in the Concord hotseat during the summer, moved up to third in the National League South standings after recording an impressive 1-0 win over Welling.

Beach Boys will now be aiming to ensure they remain on the coattails of leaders Torquay United when John Coventry’s East Thurrock bid to improve their own hopes of beating the drop.

Rocks are yet to taste victory on the road this season, while Concord have only suffered one National League South defeat on home soil since Moore took over the reins.
