Good evening and welcome to Arbour Park for tonight's FA Trophy replay against a very good Merthyr Town team.

I write these notes prior to the draw, so hopefully we have got a favourable draw in the next round if we can manage to see off Merthyr tonight.

Saturday was great character from our lads, having been two down at half time to a side that rarely gives much away at home, and with a squad missing 6 players, and only one recognised centre half.

I felt that despite being the two down we had created a few decent changes and that we could cause them problems defensively, however, we also knew the dangers that they possess.

We got right on the front foot second half and took the game to Merthyr from the first minute, yes we had to ride our luck a few times but on the whole we had control of the second half and when Charlie pulled one back from another excellent Dobbo cross, we felt that we could at least get the draw.

Fortunately we got a free kick on the edge of the box which is almost like getting a penalty, and Dobbo duly dispatched to set up tonight's game.

Make no bones about it, Merthyr are as good as anything in the league, and tonight will be another extremely touch game.

We welcome back both Mark Nisbet and Nathan Webb from suspension, plus we should have Brad Hewitt available, however Paul Stonehouse and Warren Harris will both miss out.

Enjoy the game and get behind the lads.
