JOE Kizzi believes a ‘more settled’ Billericay Town have what it takes to secure promotion this season.

The return of Harry Wheeler has seen Billericay win back to back games after an indifferent run of results which coincided with some key players leaving the AGP Arena.

But Kizzi, who scored in Tuesday night’s 3-2 win against Slough Town, believes Town are now well positioned to push for more success.

“There was a lot going on not so long ago but everything has settled down now and every single one of us is focused on the football and doing everything we can to pick up points,” said Kizzi.

“Obviously we’re always focused but when there’s a lot going on it does have an effect on you.

“But we’ve won the last two games now and we want to keep this run going.”

The back to back victories have coincided with Harry Wheeler return to the club as manager.

Wheeler replaced Dean Brennan in charge and Kizzi has enjoyed being reunited with his former manager.

“I obviously know the manager from before and I enjoy playing for him,” said Wheeler.

“I understand what he wants from me and his attention to detail is the best I’ve ever seen from any manager.

“We’ve won the last two games but I don’t think we were at our best if I’m honest on Tuesday.”

However, Billericay were still able to come out on top against Slough, with Moses Emmanuel and Adam Coombes joining Kizzi on the score-sheet.

And the defender was pleased to have dug out another win.

“We grew into the game but I don’t think we were at our best,” said Kizzi.

“The most important thing was getting the win though and we were able to do that so we were really pleased.”

The victory kept Billericay fifth in the National League South standings.

And Kizzi is keen to maintain at least a push for the play-offs.

“If we didn’t get to at least the play-offs now we would be disappointed,” said Kizzi.

“It might be hard to win the league but every team has a bit of a blip and maybe those above us might still have one.

“But we’re just focusing on ourselves and the games we have coming up.”

Up next is a trip to 10th placed Wealdstone this weekend and Kizzi knows they will be tough to beat.

“It will be a hostile atmosphere there and a difficult game,” said Kizzi.

“But we won’t be afraid.”
