Obviously it was great to return to league action, after the excitement of the FA Cup win and draw for the First Round of the FA Cup against Gainsborough Trinity, with a victory against Tiverton Town.

We would like to welcome Gosport to Arbour Park for the first time, and hope that they manage to ride out their issues on and off the field over the course of this season, and I am sure with Mick Catlin in charge he will find enough to make sure they don’t finish in that bottom position.

Obviously it was great to return to league action, after the excitement of the FA Cup win and draw for the First Round of the FA Cup against Gainsborough Trinity, with a victory against Tiverton Town, we thought in the first half we were excellent, however probably took our foot of the gas second half, albeit won the game comfortably with Tiverton not really forcing Jack in to any save of note. On Saturday in difficult playing conditions it was hard to make much of any flowing movements. The players held up to maintain our position against a very strong Kettering.

In terms of injuries, we are in pretty good shape, we expect Simon Dunn to have taken a place on the bench at the weekend after his hamstring injury, and we have rested Warren Saturday and possibly tonight due to a tight hamstring. Chris Flood also picked up an injury on Saturday and we are hoping he will recover very quickly. Harrison is probably a week or two away from resuming training, and when he has been out for so long, it is only normal to pick up little niggles.

Gavin James has gone to play for Met Police Saturday just gone and tonight, however he will be back with us on Saturday at Kidlington. He has had to be very patient with the form of Floody, Manny and Brad, so has had limited starts, and we felt getting two 90’s under his belt was the right.

Enjoy the game tonight, and let’s hope we see as many of you as possible away at Kidlington and Gainsborough.
