New Aldershot Town manager Kevin Dillon has been speaking to BBC Surrey and says that he will not be bringing big changes to the team.

He said ‘I won’t be coming in and making major changes. The team here have come through the most successful period since it was re-created in 1992.’

He’s been watching the team recently and is keen to get the players playing to their strengths, starting this Saturday when Macclesfield Town visit the Recreation Ground.

He goes on to say ‘From what I’ve seen, they’re all good footballers. Most of them are good on the ball, they like to pass the ball.’

Despite this he recognises that there is still some improvement needed in defence. He continued ‘They’ve had problems with the defence and you can see the goals against, but in the last two games they’ve had two clean sheets and that’s the basis of a good team.’

He concluded by telling the BBC that he wants the team to be able to play counter attacking football and considered it ‘one of the major strengths of this team.’

This is the ex-Reading coach’s first managerial job and has signed a contract that will keep him at the Rec until 2011.
