DANNY Scopes says Concord Rangers cannot afford to be complacent when Slough Town visit the Aspect Arena tomorrow.

The Beach Boys are the early National League South pacesetters after triumphing in both of their opening two fixtures.

Slough are yet to register a point but Scopes will not allow his side to take a third consecutive victory for granted.

“Teams are still trying to find their best team and formation so you can’t read into results too much at this stage,” said Scopes, who took over as manager in May.

“You only have so many pre-season games to work on things and so some teams are still trying to find their feet.

“There’s no doubting that we have made a great start to the season but we have to accept that things can change very quickly.

“Slough are a very good team with an intelligent management team in Jon Underwood and Neil Baker.

“They’re very good from restarts and set-plays so that is something we will need to be mindful of.

“We will have to be at our best because this, like any other game at this level, will be difficult.

“Our players are still learning about each other because we have a new group, but I can’t fault the players so far.”

Concord will go into the fixture having claimed local bragging rights with a derby win over Chelmsford City in midweek.

Having already recorded a convincing victory over Oxford City on the opening day of the season, the Beach Boys have a 100 per cent winning record since Scopes took over as boss.

Concord also head into this weekend’s encounter having scored five goals in their opening two outings.

And Scopes feels his new-look side are already showing promise because they have no pressure on their shoulders.

“It’s fantastic to have already got two wins and a clean sheet away from home so far,” added the Beach Boys’ chief.

“I was really pleased with our first half performance against Chelmsford.

“We asked the boys to compete and be brave, which I think they were.

“Doing that against a very physical Chelmsford side was pleasing.

“Some people would have expected us be defensive minded against Chelmsford, but we have good attacking options.

“We didn’t want to sit back or be defensive minded because we had nothing to lose.

“There is no pressure on the players and it’s great that they have hit the ground running.”
