An inspired substitution secured us a magnificent away win in our previous fixture. Hopefully, we wont require a change to see us to victory. But we’re up against the team that knocked us out of the FA Cup, so I’m not holding my breath…
A fiery half time team talk fired up the lads against East Thurrock – hopefully it will continue to act as inspiration (or a warning!) as we board the bus for our next game.
We reached expectations in exiting the FA Cup at the Fourth Qualifying Round, but we’re a couple of places up on our expected finish in the league. After a lengthy journey back from Woking (made longer by reflecting on defeat), we board the bus again for an even longer mid-week trip to Chelmsford.
Our last match saw us claim a somewhat fortunate win in the league. The alternating between the league and the FA Cup continues. One thing is for certain though as we board the bus – we’re going to need to play much better if we’re going to be in the FA Cup First Round and potentially travelling to (or hosting) the likes of Sunderland, Portsmouth or Swindon Town.
It was a very lucky point that we gained against Dulwich Hamlet in our last match. Our attention switches back to the FA Cup and we’re going to need a better away performance it we’re to even reach the minimum expectation of the Fourth Qualifying Round.
