Good afternoon and welcome to Arbour Park for this eagerly anticipated FA Cup 2nd Round tie against League One side Gillingham. We are well aware of the size of the task ahead of us this afternoon having been knocked out at this stage last year by Rochdale who were similarly placed in League One at the time but were excellent on the day and although the scoreline flattered them they were deserved winners on the day. We believe we have learnt lessons from that game in terms of how we approached it and feel we are stronger as a team now to take on this challenge. We have done our homework, watching them twice since the draw was made as well as gathering lots of additional information from contacts we have in the game and having trained 3 times this week our lads will be as prepared as they possibly can be. Unfortunately we are unable to select Guy Hollis and Ben Harris today as both are serving one match suspensions. Everyone else is fit however and we are also delighted to have former keeper Mark Scott re-signed to act as goalkeeping cover on the bench today. The noise levels in the Sutton replay were fantastic and really drove our lads on, particularly in the 2nd half when we were battling to get back in to the game. With the increased capacity today there could be up to twice as many fans in the ground as there were in that game and it's sure to be a special occasion. Please don't under-estimate the part you play and make sure you back the team from the first minute to the last. We hope you enjoy the game!
