Looking Ahead: Folkestone Invicta

Written by Jon Underwood


Jon Underwood gives his thoughts on Tuesday's remarkable comeback, and the visit of Folkestone.


After picking up six crucial league points this week our attentions turn to the FA Cup on Saturday and the visit of Folkestone Invicta in the Fourth Qualifying Round.

There is a huge prize for the winners, both financially and in terms of the possibilities that the First Round Proper can bring, and both teams will see this as a great opportunity to progress against a side at the same level.

Much has been spoken about the fact that our opponents were allowed to postpone their midweek game to prepare for today while we had to make the long trip to Wales. At half time on Tuesday this was looking like a real disadvantage ahead of tomorrow's game but after our incredible comeback there is no doubt the squad has been given a huge boost ahead of this important game.

The spirit and belief that our lads showed on Tuesday was nothing short of incredible and when we got together last night for a recovery session at Arbour Park there was a real buzz amongst them for tomorrow's game.

We have a strong squad to choose from but unfortunately will again be without Simon Dunn who trained last night but doesn't feel quite ready to return following his recent hamstring injury. We need to be careful with him and won't try to rush him back too soon.

The other absentee is Harrison Gilkes who played for Bracknell Town last weekend where he did well and scored but unfortunately tweaked his hamstring slightly and it may be another week before he is back in training.

We took the decision last night to register Jamie Jackson and he completes the 18-man squad tomorrow as goalkeeping cover on the bench which is always important in a game such as this.

We hope for another bumper crowd at Arbour Park to cheer the lads on so please make it down if you can and make some noise!

Squad: Jack Turner, Josh Jackman, George Wells, Mark Nisbet, Alan Inns, Guy Hollis, Nathan Smart, Sean Fraser, Lee Togwell, Nathan Webb, Matt Lench, Warren Harris, James Dobson, Manny Williams, Chris Flood, Gavin James, Brad Wadkins, Jamie Jackson.
