Sporting Bengal United boss Imrul Gazi wants his men to keep plugging away as he’s confident in his squad ahead of their clash with Waltham Forest.

Bengal welcome Forest to Mile End Stadium this evening (7.45pm) as they look to get their first victory of 2018 in the Essex Senior League.

Gazi also revealed how vital their next two matches are and they need to get points on the board to stop them falling into the relegation zone.

“We’ve got to keep plugging away and hopefully we will start getting some luck and a fee bounces.

“It’s important the team keep their heads up and keep fighting.

“We’ve got a good squad and I’m happy with the squad we have as well.”

He added: “We’ve got to get some points from our next two matches as they’re against teams around us and they’re all picking up points.”

Waltham Forest appointed Ryan Maxwell as their new manager earlier this week after they decided to part company with Qayum Shakoor.

“Waltham Forest has just got a new manager so that will give something new.

“He was there last season and then went off to Ware, he’s an ex-professional as well, so he’ll come in with his own philosophy.

“I’m sure he’ll bring new ideas and have players coming in.

“I’m not sure why they wanted to get rid of Qayum Shakoor as they’ve been doing well lately and I think he deserved more time.

“But I think only time will tell whether bringing in a new manager is right or wrong.”

Gazi also revealed he expects them to be confident ahead of the match as they will have seen his side’s recent form.

“I’m sure they’ll be looking at our recent results and think they can come here and take the points.”

Bengal go into the match on the back of a 2-0 defeat to high-flying Great Wakering Rovers last weekend and he believes his men worked hard but individual errors proved costly.

“We were really good for 60 minutes and there was nothing in the game until our goalkeeper had an absolute howler and that’s kills us off,” Gazi said.

“The boys worked their socks off and I still have lots of belief as the boys showed they could compete but it was individual errors that cost us again.

“We’re not taking our chances either and against a team like Great Wakering, they’ll punish you for that.

“We’re now really in a relegation dog fight and the pressure is on us.”
