We won't take things easy - Blues' boss
RIDGEONS LEAGUE PREVIEW: Lowestoft joint boss Micky Chapman rules out complacency ahead of the Ridgeons Premier Division leaders' trip to lowly Harwich & Parkeston. The Blues eased to a 3-1 Crown Meadow win last month but Chapman is wary of the new manager bounce following the recent appointment of ex-AFC Sudbury chief Mark Morsley.
Lowestoft joint boss Micky Chapman rules out complacency ahead of the Ridgeons Premier Division leaders' trip to lowly Harwich & Parkeston.
The Blues eased to a 3-1 Crown Meadow win last month but Chapman is wary of the new manager bounce following the recent appointment of ex-AFC Sudbury chief Mark Morsley.
“It's a difficult place to go,” said Chapman. “We're under no illusions, they have a new manager and their players will raise their game for the new boss as they will want to keep their shirts - he will probably bring a few players with him as well.”
Dale Cockrill returned from injury and suspension during the 3-2 home win over Woodbridge last time out that kept Lowestoft a commanding nine points clear of the chasing pack.

“It was a workmanlike performance where we ground out a result,” said Chapman. “Sometimes you have to win ugly. The lads know the quality wasn't there, but sometimes you have to dig in and all credit goes to them for getting the three points.
“It's very difficult to perform week in, week out - even the Premiership sides can't do it all the time - but we produced the minimum requirement we needed to and still got the result when we weren't at our best. We know we can do better, but all credit goes to the boys for the way they stuck together.”
