TOTNES and Dartington boss Sav Savva is refusing to shout about his side's prospects this season despite seeing them move up to second place with a win over Newton Abbot Spurs last weekend.
Goals from Angus Wilson, Charlie Baxendale, John Rimmer and Louis Horton helped Savva's men to a 4-2 home victory – their fourth win of the opening seven games.
Tots travel to Okehampton Argyle this Saturday (3pm) hoping to sustain the kind of form which has seen them also beat Liverton United (7-0), Plymstock United (6-3) and Exeter University (3-1).
But Savva is also wary of setting the bar too high having seen his side lose 4-3 at home to Galmpton and ship another four goals against Teignmouth.
"So far this season, we're doing well going forward but defensively we have been pretty poor – until [Saturday]," he said. "The new players have definitely added a bit to the team and put pressure on places, and we're still waiting for a couple of players to finish suspensions. Hopefully we will take it on for a little bit longer, and we can improve on where we finished last season.
"There's definitely a different attitude and we're moving in the right direction."
Alex Narramore is expected to make his long-awaited debut for Tots this weekend having signed during the summer but unable to play through injury.
Gareth Judkins is also expected to come into the Totnes squad, with Tom Comyn and Alan Mayer both unavailable.
Savva is upbeat about this weekend's away clash at Simmons Park thanks to previous results.
"We've always gone up there and done well," he said.
"We've never not done well, as the boys like the banter on the trip and we prepare well for it – so we'll do the same this weekend."
AN 80TH-MINUTE equaliser denied Teignmouth a win at home to Sidmouth Town last weekend, with the hosts facing strong opposition in 'keeper Luke Ashford.
Teignmouth had opened the scoring after 35 minutes through Sam Chapman but couldn't find a way past Ashford for the rest of the game.
Teignmouth, now set in the mid-table, welcome struggling Budleigh Salterton on Saturday, who have lost three of their opening four games.
GALMPTON secured their third away win on the trot after a comfortable 3-1 win at Crediton. Goals came from Alex Bayliss, Matt Barkwell and Dan Rankin.
Galmpton welcome Sidmouth Town this weekend to try and make it three wins in a row.
LIVERTON's sorry run continued with a 6-0 loss away to Okehampton Argyle last weekend.
Liverton travel to Stoke Gabriel on Saturday.
