Braintree Town have nothing to fear against Bristol Rovers says skipper

KENNY DAVIS says they have nothing to fear when Bristol Rovers make their visit to Cressing Road this Saturday.
The Pirates were relegated from the Football League on the final day of last season and haven’t found Conference Premier life easy, having taken eight points from their opening six matches.
And Braintree Town skipper Davis believes it is the visitors who have more to worry about than the home side.
“All the time we’ve been in this league we’ve competed with everyone and I think they’ll be more worried about us then we will be about then,” said Davis. “It’s a big thing if Braintree beat them but it isn’t a shock if they beat us.
“We take very game as it comes. Of course we’ll be respectful and they will probably bring a few hundred fans but at the end of the day it’s just 11 v 11.
“Over the last few years I think we’ve earned a lot of respect in this division and people know it’s a difficult place to come to. You get teams coming to us with five across the middle and they’re happy if they can come away with a point.”
The Iron sit two places above Saturday’s visitors, with the weekend’s 2-0 win at bottom-side Alfreton Town, leaving them with nine points from their first six.
