Moss: Fourth from bottom is not an achievement

AFCB Goalkeeping Coach, Neil Moss, thinks the current squad need to make the most of the opportunity they have presented themselves with and not be grateful with just safety.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, the former club number 1 wants the club to continue pushing itself up the Football League ladder:

'We`re certainly not going into it thinking fourth bottom is an achievement. Anyone that knows Eddie (Howe) will know he is a perfectionist and he won`t settle for us just beating the smaller sides in the division and, with the chairman and the owner, we`ve got a lot of ambitious people at the club. We don`t want to waste this after the hard work it has taken for us to go from a struggling League Two club to a Championship side. It would be a massive shame if we let up now, let it go backwards and let it all fizzle away. We want to push on and, you never know, we might push ourselves into the top six with a little bit of luck next season... You think back two or three years when some of the players and staff, including myself, were struggling to get paid because the club had no money, so it is everyone`s responsibility to do our best and try to make sure we continue with the run we`ve had over the past few years and don`t stand still.'
