Harry Wheeler has challenged Maidstone to build on their clean sheet at Braintree, report Kent Online.
Saturday’s 1-0 success lifted United out of the National League relegation zone. It was just their second shut-out of the season and is something the new boss has made a point of working on.

Wheeler said: “Clean sheets win leagues. You can play badly when you’re always good at keeping clean sheets and you win 1-0. It’s a massive thing.
