More to come from Tonge, says Scott

MANAGER Andy Scott hopes there is more to come from Dale Tonge as the defender sets about holding down a regular place in the side.

The 26-year-old has had extra competition for the right-back berth from Marcus Marshall and it is set to increase when Johnny Mullins returns from injury.

Tonge has played the last few games and deservedly and with utility man Troy Brown also pushing for a start, Tonge needs to keep up his standards, a fact acknowledged by his manager.

Scott said: "Tongey is a lad who likes to enjoy his football but sometimes he enjoys it too much to the detriment of his concentration and the way he plays.

"From my point of view that is frustrating because he has all the tools. He has plenty of energy, he's a good defender, he has good ability on the ball and he reads the game well and has composure."
