JAMIE O’Hara has called on Billericay Town to build on their back-to-back clean sheets when Oxford City visit New Lodge tonight.

Billericay followed up their 2-0 Essex Senior Cup success against Waltham Abbey with a creditable goalless draw at Weymouth on Saturday.

And O’Hara, who singled out recent recruit Michael Chambers for praise after clinching a point at the weekend, is pleased to see the defensive record improving as 18th-placed Town bid to climb the National League South standings.

“Chambers was different class and so was Ronnie Henry,” said player-manager O’Hara.

“Themis Kefalas defended really well when he came on as well.

“We build from the back and we’ve got goals in the team.

“I said to the boys we could have won it at Weymouth.

“We had some really good chances through Femi Akinwande and Jack Paxman, so the game was there for us to win.”

Chambers, a central defender who counts Premier League side Crystal Palace among his former clubs, was not the only player to make his Billericay debut at the weekend.

Ade Cole, who finished last season with Canvey Island in the Isthmian North and has made the move after leaving Braintree Town, completed 56 minutes before being forced off with a knock.

And O’Hara insists Billericay’s fans must be patient.

“Ade needs a couple more games to get him back to fitness,” added O’Hara.

“But I’m pleased with the players that have come into the club.”
