Telford boss Sinton says pressure on ex-League clubs

Sinton led Telford to promotion in his first season in charge

AFC Telford manager Andy Sinton believes ex-league clubs are feeling the pressure in the Blue Square Bet Premier relegation battle.

Grimsby, Lincoln and Stockport are all in the bottom half of the table, along with the Bucks.

"The big clubs who aren't performing will have the sleepless nights, not me," Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire.

Telford, who are three points clear of the drop zone, face leaders Wrexham twice over the festive period.

"The pressure is on the big clubs with budgets far bigger than ours," added Sinton, who is in charge of a club that decided to remain part-time after their promotion from the Blue Square Bet North last season.

"I'm looking at new players to bring in in the January window but I'm shopping at Primark rather than Harvey Nicholls."

"We're not far away. We need a little more quality in certain areas. We have a fantastic team ethic and I'm not concerned about the way we play, set the team up and train.

"We are close to the relegation zone but our aim is to stay in the league and I know we can do it."
