After Saturday's great away victory at Harlow, I invited Lee Bradbury to give us his reaction on the game;
'It was a real tight affair the first half was really cagey, neither team wanted to get opened up, we took a bit of time to adjust to the pitch and in the second half when we had done that we were a lot more comfortable and confident on the ball, we were braver on the ball and stayed on the ball a bit longer, we made a couple more passes in and around the box which was key to opening them up for the first goal, so pleased with the result and the way we played, considering they are top of the form guide and have won their last 4 matches, they have won 12 games at home this season, so a really good win win for us which we have to back up with our next 2 home league games'.
I invited Lee to comment on tomorrow's home Portsmouth Cup semi final match at Westleigh Park;
'Tomorrow we will be fielding a strong side, and the lads that have been on the bench recently will play, it will give them a chance to keep match fit, keep sharp and ultimately give them the opportunity to show me why they should be in the squad every week, these lads haven't had many chances recently, James Hayter, Matty Paterson, George Barker, Wes Fogden, all theses lads will play and it will give them the opportunity to show me why I should include them next Saturday, we really want to try and win this competition but mine and the clubs focus is on winning the league'.
Finally with 2 home Ryman Premier games at home, I asked Lee how important these were;
'These next 2 games our massive for us and I would encourage the whole fan base to get behind the team and cheer them on, I know our recent home form has been indifferent so now is the time we really need the fans support, yes we have been great on the road, but know is the time to come and really get behind the team at home for the full 90/95 minutes and help us achieve what we all want to achieve.'
