CHAIRMAN Steve Harris believes Raiders are "the team to beat" after their 5-1 win at Darlaston Town saw them go top of the table on Saturday.

An early brace from goal-scoring centre-half Danny Flowers put the visitors ahead before Luke Molloy added a third.

Darlaston pulled one back shortly after half-time but further goals from Isaac Cooper and substitute Eshan Greer ensured Raiders continued their unbeaten start to the campaign.

With their fifth win in six league games Raiders are proving they will be difficult to stop as they head into tonight's fixture with Bewdley Town.

Raiders are away for the second game in a row after their triumph at Darlaston and Harris explains the players' confidence is on a real high.

"It was a great win at Darlaston on Saturday," he said.

"The players confidence is sky-high at the moment and after the game the players were in great spirits.

"I think we are the team to beat really, with the facilities we have and the owners giving us a good platform and playing at Sixways is great for us as well.

"But then again, any game in this league is a tough one and that will be the same against Bewdley."

Harris eluded to how important managers Chris Cornes and Karl Gormley has been and insists the players bond with the coaching staff is proving dividends.

"I think the players are really playing for the managers," he added.

"The management have such a good rapport with the players and there is a real feel good factor around the camp and hopefully we can just keep it going.

"We have had just a couple of injuries so far and hopefully we can keep players fit but we have great strength in depth in the squad this year.

"I looked at the bench at the weekend and anyone on there could have come on and made an impact."

Raiders have a weekend off after the Bewdley fixture tonight and return to action next Saturday, November 7, at Sixways for their clash with Dudley Town (3pm kick-off).
