Lee Bradbury comments on Tuesday's performance against Met Police and moves on to preview Saturday's home tie against Lowestoft.
'It wasn't our best performance on Tuesday night, I thought we were a little lethargic and didn't play the football we are capable of in the first half. After half time we addressed a few things and I thought our second half performance was better, we were braver with and without the ball, and to me the sign of a good side is, if you play poorly and still get all three points, that's a real positive. Also we were away from home, last season we had a terrible away record, now we have our away win under our belt and I hope we can continue that throughout the season.
'We played a lot of long ball into Jason Prior, which he is capable of making something happen, I think probably too much, We need to get back to our passing game which the fans want to see and I want to see, and it's what we are good at.
'Looking forward to Saturday, it will be a tough game, they have some good players, like us they are expected to be up the top half of the league this season. So far this season they have one both of their away games, so a good side away from home and they will be a threat. They will come to Westleigh Park, try and frustrate us and make life difficult, this is when we all have to be patient, the game may be 95 minutes of football and it may take 80 minutes before the game opens up and we can take our chances. It's at this point I feel I have to mention our supporters, they were brilliant on Tuesday away at Met Police, we probably had 3 or 4 times as many supporters, for them to travel up there mid week was incredible, they were noisy, even though it wasn't a fantastic performance they backed us all the time and it really made a difference. I have made reference to them in my match notes in Saturday's program and they helped get us three points. They are a major part of the football club.
'Wes Fogden pulled his hamstring on Tuesday, I did consider resting him as he's put so much in over the last few games after his injury, but he is valuable to the side and offers so much it was difficult to leave him out. Thankfully we don't have any other injury issues, George Barker trained on Thursday and will be available on Saturday.'
