Forest Green Rovers forward Aaron O'Connor says there is no danger of complacency causing them to lose their 100% record in the National League.

The club are top of the table with eight wins from eight games and host Southport on Saturday.

"We don't want that (complacency) to be the reason why we don't keep this unbeaten run going," said O'Connor, 32.

"We don't want it to be down to the fact we think we are better than we are," he told BBC Gloucestershire.

"We treat every team with respect and if we give 100% like we have in the other games, then no disrespect to Southport, but I will be very, very shocked if we don't get three points."

The former Newport striker also believes the club have enough experienced players to ensure nobody will get carried away with their position.

"Stuff like that will get caught and nipped in the bud," he added. "If you want to go places, there is no room for it.

"The players do a good job of staying grounded. We don't let ourselves get complacent and if the manager saw any of it creeping in, he would still cut it out."
