Enter the Hawks Nest as we head onto our maiden National League voyage!!
Lee Bradbury looks back at Tuesday's match away at Sudbury and forward to this Saturday's Home clash against Needham Market;
'I was really pleased with the result, first half neither team could get hold of the ball as we tried to deal with the freezing weather, there was no real flow to the game, it was an unexpectedly quick pitch, being on Astor and also the cold conditions made it very tricky to control the ball. After we made a few adjustments and especially in the second half, I thought we deserved to win the game, we scored a couple of good goals, Bradley Tarbuck and Rory Williams on the score sheet, so both wing backs adding to the attack as well as their defensive duties. A really pleasing, disciplined mid week performance a long way from home.
'The pleasing thing this season is you are not just relying on your strikers to score goals, we are chipping in from all over the park which is brilliant, it's the sign of a good side, so our opposition aren't just worrying about 1 or 2 players they know we have 5 or 6 that can put the ball away. One of the most appealing things for me lately has been us keeping a clean sheet, we have the best defensive record in the league, the defenders along with Ryan Young have been great, this is key to us winning games, keeping a clean sheet'.
I asked Lee what his approach would be on Saturday against Needham Market;
'Go for it, try and win the game its the only way we know and the way I try and get the lads to play, play at a high tempo with a desire to win and passion, everything the fans want to see, ultimately play some good football, that's the key to it. when we play our best, we are all on the front foot, working hard for each other, closing down the opposition and generally making it hard for them. We have good footballers, we know that, we have to do the other side of the game, and if we do that we will get 3 points again on Saturday'.
