The Steelmen have won three of their opening four West Midlands League Premier Division games but Gill, who takes his team to Bridgnorth tomorrow, knows they have yet to hit top form.

“We are pleased with the start and it’s about par for where we wanted to be,” he said. “But at the moment we are probably five or six out of 10. There is more to come from us.

“I think we can defend better. I have been disappointed with some of the goals we have conceded. We are usually much tighter at the the back. The attitude is bang on, which are just not quite at it yet.”

While Bilston are sitting in the top four, Bridgnorth, managed by former Wolves youngster Graham Ward, have yet to taste victory in the league and have picked up just one point.

But Gill isn’t expecting paying too much attention to the league table.

“Graham knows the game and he wants his side to play good football,” said Gill. “We will be prepared for the best they have got. That’s the way we prepare for all our games.”

Dudley Town will be looking to throw down an early season marker when they host leaders Shifnal Town.

Both sides go into the clash having won all their games to date – Dudley two from two and Shifnal four from four.
