Enter the Hawks Nest as we head onto our maiden National League voyage!!
The Hawks face their longest trip of the season tomorrow as they make the trip to Cornwall to face Truro City who will be looking for a reaction after being reversed by Whitehawk in Brighton last week. Ahead of the clash I spoke to the gaffer Lee Bradbury and he gave me his assessment on this National League South match-up.
"Big game for both sides". He said. "We are reasonably close to each other in the league at the moment and so if we can go there and get a point it would be a good point and if we play the way we've played recently I think we can go and get all 3. It will be the same boring message from me and that's to just keep doing what we're doing and if it's not broke don't fix it."
The Hawks boss also wanted to point out how "great" the lads attitudes to recent postponements have been. "The attitude of the lads have been great to the postponements. We've had games called off but worked hard, been bright and energetic but it is no substitute for games so we can't wait to get out there and start playing games."
And so I asked the gaffer about that character within the squad to just keeping plugging away at the task in hand. "We've got to be focused. We're going to get our ups and downs and get knocked off your stride at various points in the season and every team gets that with injuries, suspensions, games called off etc. So you just got focus and concentrate on the job in hand and this week it's Truro. We've worked hard in the week and we are looking forward to the game. It's a long way to go so we got to go and come back with something".
The Hawks go into the game against Truro despite recent postponements with plenty of optimism. Their destiny is in their own hands and that's all a side could hope or wish for.
