New Eastleigh manager Ronnie Moore does not feel under any pressure to deliver promotion to the Football League.

Former Tranmere and Rotherham boss Moore watched from the stands as his new side drew at Wrexham on Saturday.

"Pressure's for wimps," he told BBC Radio Solent. "I'm not bothered about that as the chairman has brought me here to better us and we can do that."

Moore, 63, replaced Chris Todd at the Silverlake Stadium, who was dismissed just four games into the season.

Midfielder Ben Strevens took caretaker charge of the side at Wrexham, but will return to playing duties for the visit of Solihull Moors on Saturday.

Meanwhile, former Swindon and Reading midfielder Kevin Watson has joined the club as Moore's assistant manager.

Moore, whose last job was at Hartlepool in League Two, is also set to make some new additions to the National League club's squad.

"The work ethic is really good, but there's room for improvement" he added.

"We've got some quality players here and with a bit of luck we might be able to bring in one or two more."
