Following Saturday’s 3-0 pre-season friendly win vs AFC Dunstable, manager Bren Kelly spoke on our Instagram account; below is a write up of that interview.
NOTE: Interviews will be returning to our social media and Youtube for our first home game of the 2019/20 season, at home to Biggleswade Town.
The game itself
“Another good workout – it was frustrating because I wanted to play certain players a lot longer in this match, with the fixture on Tuesday being called off. It was only fair that we shared it so everyone had 45 minutes, except for the two lads at centre half (who played 90).
“It was probably our most fluent performance and we created a lot of chances so I’m pleased.”
Reflections on debutant goalkeeper Tony Breeden and brace scoring Shaquille McDonald
“Clean sheet first half, clean sheet second half and Shaquille caused problems; not only in behind but his link up play was good – I think the second goal (of the game) was excellent to be fair and the way he finished it was aggressive and good for him because he’s not had a lot of minutes because he’s been struggling with a thigh strain, so I’m pleased that he got through a full 45 at full pace.”
Leon Broadhurst’s injury
“He’s just jarred his knee when he was turning so it’s a little bit sore but it will be monitored.”
Preparations for Biggleswade Town game this Saturday
“Like always, meticulous. Try and cover every scenario and every eventuality that may happen in the game; we’ve certainly got things to work on and we are far from the finished article and we’ll be in Tuesday, in Thursday because I know Biggleswade were watching – we’ll have to bear that in mind.
“If we look after ourselves, we’ll be a force and we’l give anyone a game.”
