Scott Doe: Has faith in his manager

Burnett navigated the side to League Two safety after taking over from John Still in February, despite a final-day defeat to York.

Burnett's men won just one of their final nine league games but Doe is confident the current boss is the man for the job as he looks ahead to an improved season next year.

He told London 24: "I hope Wayne gets the job. He can bring in his own players and do his own thing.

"We've battled and beaten some of the bigger teams in this league, so we know we can do it.

"Obviously we want to finish as high as possible."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
