Old Albanians head coach Andy Holloway is confident his side won’t get complacent as they head into the final six games of the National League One season.

The Hertfordshire club have won three of their last four games and still have to play the division’s basement clubs Maccesfield and Tynedale at home in the coming weeks.

OAs put in an underwhelming winning performance at the weekend against Cinderford but Holloway knows they will have to improve away to seventh positioned Richmond in two weekend’s time.

“We have another six cup finals to go and we just cannot get ahead of ourselves,” said Holloway. “The team have a week to recover and then we’ll go again for Richmond who are a top team.

“If we play to our full ability we can beat anyone but we need to improve our ball retention, concentration and execution.”

The head coach’s admits his side are being held together by tape at present but his cause to beat the drop is aided by returning props Charlie Hughes (broken toe) and Andy Berry (back) for the run in.

“We have a couple of injury concerns and absentees but we’ve shown our strength in depth with three or four juniors stepping up. If we play like we know that we can then I expect to win more games than we will lose in these next six games.”
