Jamie O’Hara has rubbished Billericay Town chairman Dan Groves’ claims that a mid-table finish would be seen as an acceptable campaign for the National League South club, The Basildon Standard say.
Having reduced Town’s budget ahead of the forthcoming season, Groves insisted that he would be content even if Billericay do not challenge for promotion.
But O’Hara, who returned to the AGP Arena as Harry Wheeler’s player-assistant manager in January, believes bagging a play-off place should be the club’s minimum target.
O’Hara said: “I disagree with Dan. I want to put the pressure on the players and ourselves.
“Harry and I want to push the club to where we believe it should be and that’s up into the National League.
“I think we’ve put together a squad of players who are capable of getting into the play-offs. I think it’s a squad that is capable of winning the league.”
