Stansted's Mark Roach is hoping his side can bounce back in The FA Vase Second Round Qualifying at Diss Town this weekend after a poor start to their season.
The Blues have only played three games in the Essex Senior League so far this term, losing every one and currently sit 19th in the table.
But Roach is hoping a win against Eastern Counties Premier League side Diss Town in The Vase can trigger a positive run in the league.
Roach said: "We expect to be finishing mid-table so it's disappointing. Hopefully we start picking up some points.
"We're a good team. We finished strongly last season so it's been a frustrating start to the campaign this year.
"We expect Diss Town to be a decent side. They play in a good league so it will be a tough game."
Roach is also hoping the return of captain Tom Le Masurier from injury will give Stansted much needed encouragement.
He said: "Tom's been injured for most of the season so far but he played against Tower Hamlets midweek.
"He plays in the centre of midfield and he is a good captain so it's a big boost to have him back in the side."
The defender also spoke about how much the club has changed since Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle left Stansted in 2011.
He said: "Unfortunately I never played with him.
"Some of the players who had played with him left midway through last season so a lot has changed since he was here."
