DINO Maamria says his Brewers squad will not be getting carried away by a six-game unbeaten run that included a 2-1 win over Cambridge in front of the Sky Cameras on Monday night.
The Albion manager said he always had belief and confidence when the results weren’t as hoped and he won’t let the squad become over confident now they are winning games.
He said: “I have reached a stage in life where I realise that it’s never as bad as you think it is and it’s never as good as you think it is. And that’s my favourite saying.”
Maamria says that injuries and setbacks have forced him to make changes in terms of approach which have resulted in a turnaround in form.
He adds: “The credit goes to the players and how they have taken on board the new ideas. I think they have responded really well in terms of what we have been telling them and what we have asked them to do. Their confidence comes from the work, the belief and the journey they make to where they are now.”
The Brewers travel to Lincoln tomorrow looking to make it seven unbeaten.
Maamria said: “It’s a brilliant football club run by really good people. They have a good manager and players and if anything should be above where they are now. Their fans are always right behind them and sang their hearts out throughout the game at Peterborough even when they were 2-0 down. They have some of the best fans in the league and that makes it really difficult for teams going there. You have to make sure you override that.
“We won at Lincoln last season but that counts for nothing and we have to be ready again. “
Maamria has several injury doubts to contend with after Deji Oshilaja, Mark Helm and Josh Walker picked up knocks.
He said: “We will assess them before the game, but they are all doubtful.
“Cole Stockton has been training with us and we hope to organise a behind closed doors game next Tuesday to get him and some of the lads who haven’t had as many minutes some game time. Jasper Moon might be ready to play some part in that game as well which would be a big boost.“
