BRETT Munyard insists White Ensign cannot afford to become complacent despite moving four points clear at the top of the Eastern Counties League Division One South standings.

White Ensign sealed a 4-2 victory over second-placed Little Oakley thanks to goals from Jake McWee, Luke Skinner, Munyard and Connor Barnby at Burroughs Park.

Although his side overcame their closest challengers for the title, player-manager Munyard will not allow White Ensign to rest on their laurels.

“It was a big win for us, especially after losing to them earlier in the season,” said Munyard.

“They are a very strong side and it was a tough game.

“However, it’s just three points and we have 13 league games left.

“There is still so much to do to achieve our goal of promotion.

“Every game is huge now and we have won eight in a row.

“We’re desperate for that to continue but each game gets harder no matter who we play.

“This league is very unpredictable, so we won’t take anyone lightly.”

White Ensign will be hoping to maintain their winning streak when they welcome Fire United to Burroughs Park on Saturday.

Although Fire United are propping up the table, Munyard is still seeking improvements to the display against Little Oakley.

“We played well in the first half but we were a bit slow and didn’t find any real rhythm in our football,” added Munyard.

“However, we still managed to score three goals.

“We took control in the second half and should have scored more if I’m being honest.”
