Danny Scopes believes his Concord Rangers side need to learn how to cope with going into matches as the favourites to emerge victorious.

Having got the National League South campaign off to a 100 per cent winning start, the Beach Boys made the trip to winless Tonbridge Angels.

But a late Jack Parter goal saw Concord suffer their first setback in the form of a 1-0 defeat and Scopes has called on his side to adapt their mentality.

The Beach Boys’ boss said: “We went to Tonbridge as favourites and we are not used to that pressure.

“As Concord Rangers, we know that we never really go anywhere as the favourites, so it was an odd position to be in.

“We were the favourites because Tonbridge had yet to win a game, while we had won all three of ours.

“Although we’re not used to being the favourites, it’s something that we have got to deal with.”
