WEALDSTONE must develop more of a winning habit on their travels to cement their place as title contenders according to new boy Chris Moore.
The former Brentford striker knows a thing or two about winning non-league trophies having been part of the Dagenham team which won The Conference en route to the Football League in 2006-7.
Six years on Moore finds himself part of a Stones side which has been almost invincible on home turf at The Vale, but has won just two of the six games on their travels so far in the campaign.
With 15 of their remaining 26 games on the road, starting with Saturday’s trip to in-form Leiston, Moore says Stones must discover the sort of momentum found by the Daggers in their championship winning year if they are to go on to similar glory.
He said: “Whether we win the title or not is likely to depend on what we do out on the road. When I won the Conference with Dagenham we were picking up wins all the time home and away as part of a big run.”
Leiston represents a second journey to East Anglia this month for Stones, no hardship for a seasoned campaigner like Moore.
However, the experienced front-man is keen to avoid a repeat of the 3-0 defeat at Lowestoft on his stones debut.
He added: “I picked the right time to sign didn’t I with the away trip to Lowestoft and now Leiston, but I don’t mind the journeys having played in leagues where there were trips up and down the country. They don’t fuss me as long as we come away with the three points, but the atmosphere on the coach back from Lowestoft wasn’t too lively so we don’t want to go through that again.”
