HARRY Wheeler insists he has returned to Billericay Town to finish what he started.

Wheeler, whose side host Slough tonight, was dismissed as Town boss back in August.

But Wheeler was named as Dean Brennan’s last week and is determined to enjoy a successful end to the season.

“On the playing side I felt as though I had unfinished business so I wanted to come back and finished what we had started,” said Wheeler.

“When I left I think we were top of the second in the league and I do still think promotion is possible.

“Right now it does seem like the play-offs will be the most realistic option but we will see how the next month goes.

“After that we might be having a different conversation but we won’t be looking too far ahead.

“This is a very talented group and it’s up to us to get the most from them now.”

Wheeler won his first game back in charge at the weekend, beating Welling 2-0 at the AGP Arena to move up to fifth in the National League South standings.

And Wheeler, who is working alongside player coach Jamie O’Hara, was delighted to get off to a successful start.

“It was a good win and a good performance too,” said Wheeler.

“The work-rate and heart of the team was exactly what we wanted and we’ve set the standard there now.”

Billericay will now be bidding for more of the same against Slough, who are 12th in the standings.

But Wheeler is expecting another tricky test.

“It will be a tough game and we’ve seen from their exploits in the cup that they’re a good team,” said the Billericay boss.

“They’ve been together a while now so they have good continuity. But if we match their work-rate I think we will have enough about us to go and win the game.”
