Burgess Hill Town Boss Ian Chapman is expecting a much tougher test when Grays Athletic visit the Green Elephants Stadium on Saturday.

It’s been a fantastic start for the Hillians picking up maximum points from their first two fixtures of the season, but manager Ian Chapman knows that Saturday’s test against Grays is going to be difficult.

He said: “Grays Athletic will be a bigger test, they’re a good team that will be up there at the end of the season, they could even win the league.”

Last night, the Hillians picked up a good 2-0 victory against VCD Athletic at home but Chapman isn’t getting carried away just yet, he added: “Last night was a great result for us. It was quite a close game but we had the better chances and we deserved to win it in the end.

“We’re not getting carried away, we’ve played two sides, and no disrespect to them, they will probably be mid-table and won’t challenge near the top.

“We’ve been solid but obviously got goals at the right time.

“We’ve got no expectations going into Saturday and if we could get something out of the game, that would be great.”
