Ahead of Saturday’s match with AFC Dunstable, manager Bren Kelly previews the game itself, as well as looking at the festive period thus far for Sporting, the possibility of making changes to the starting XI, the complexion of the league and a mention for the departing Kev Barry, who is in the dugout for the final time at this game.
He will be working for NATO in SHAPE Belgium, as part of his ongoing RAF career.
“Not a bad return on the festive fixtures so far for us – some very different and difficult tests but very pleased to have picked up the points we have.
“Cambridge away is looking more like a point gained with the form they have hit after bringing in six new players recently.
“Sutton at home was a good performance and a deserved win; the crowd was incredible and I hope as many as possible return on Saturday for the visit of AFC Dunstable.
“Our first game at Step Four was away to them, where we ran out 4-1 winners.
“The squad is healthy and I have plenty of options to choose from – I may look to mix and freshen it up due to all the games in a short space of time.
“As we approach the halfway point, it’s getting harder and harder to avoid questions about our position and our credentials for the league campaign.
“All I can say is we are doing our best to pick up as many points as possible.
“However, I do think Corby and Peterborough Sports are the strong favourites for the title.
“We try not to look or worry about other results, as we just want to focus on ourselves and concentrate on improving all the time.
“Also on Saturday, we say farewell to Kev. I would like to thank him for his efforts since joining the club and wish him well for his next chapter.
“Hope to see you all packed in the Shed – we will try and win the points for the Sporting faithful.”
