Ahead of Saturday’s Evo-Stik Southern League Division One Central visit to Kempston Rovers, manager Bren Kelly previews the opposition, as well as the team latest and the importance of not being complacent after last Saturday’s heroics.
“Another trip into the unknown for us this Saturday away to Kempston.
“We enter the busy Christmas period in good league form and will look to continue that good form this week.
“It’s pointless beating the league leaders one week and then fail against thirf bottom the next week.
“To prevent this happening, we need to approach the game in the exact same manner we did against Peterborough Sports; the same energy, the same endeavour, the same quality and the same mindset.
“If we can do that, we stand a good chance of getting the all important three points.
“With things so tight at the top of the the table, every inch counts and we cannot afford to show any signs of complacency.
“We are still big outsiders in regards to being talked about as title contenders and whilst it’s nice to be talked about in that vein, we know we are not one of the favourites.
“We are playing some very good football and picking up points, which is fantastic; however, as I said before, we are minnows at step four and a big bulk of the squad have never played step four previously, so we will remain grounded and keep working hard on things in training to prepare is as best we can.
“On top of being minnows, we are still a very young side – Charlie Dowd 18, Tom Massey 18, Will Shorrock 19, Jason Cowley 22, and a lot more of the squad under 25.
“Bar Craig Jones (family commitment), I have a full squad to choose from, including Liam Spink, who has all but completed his rehab and been getting games elsewhere, so the squad is very healthy with another possible addition next week.
“See you all Saturday.”
