Can’t believe there is no discussion for the game this Saturday. Yes the conference is the main thing this season but that can be forgotten about now until Saturday night. Apart from the high profile FA Cup games, we have one of the biggest games ever to be played at Park Lane in three days time to appear in our 2nd national cup final. This time however we can achieve this right on our own doorstep, not over 200 miles away.
The build up should pick up towards the weekend but I feel that things are a bit muted at present, like we don’t know what to do with all this success!
Come on everyone, a very big match at the weekend then hopefully a great day out on May 23rd.
It’s going to be a very tight game and Telford do not give much away at the back. With Tony Naylor up front for them, 5ft nothing, they will have to play more of the ball to feet and not the big hoof like we often see. As like last Saturday, will be interesting to see all the little personal battles all over the field.
Again, if selected, Wardy, Chenners and Gavin will have to be colossal again at the back. The midfield will have to work their socks off again and stop those dangerous cut-ins from the wings that end up on the edge of our area. Must get a tackle in before they can get there (Dobbo will let them know!). Up front, we won’t have much change up there unless we can unlock them.
I’d expect Telford to start fast again like last week where they had their best chances in the first 15 minutes. This week, we will have to come out of the starting blocks as well.
All the best lads and hopefully we will be looking forward to another big day out and another special day in Canvey history with the right national headlines and coverage.
