Chappo's corner

We've got a lot of injuries at the moment and with no game in the last week, players have been having a lot treatment from the physios as we try to get everything ready for tomorrow.

We've got a lot of injuries at the moment and with no game in the last week, players have been having a lot treatment from the physios as we try to get everything ready for tomorrow.

Last week's call-off gave us the chance to rest a few weary legs and give a few people time to recover and get back up and running again so we can choose from a fuller squad for our FA Vase game with Harefield United.

Of our long-term injuries, Matty Potter is starting training again and Carl Poppy is still probably a little while as yet.

Darren Cockrill should be back, Marcus Saunders is having more treatment, and is touch and go but we're hoping he'll be back as well.

Neil Plaskett is available, which is good news and we'll have Ali McKenna back and Craig Lewis will be having a run out in the reserves.

With still got a few concerns but we're getting there slowly, but we'll have a strong squad to choose from on Saturday and we're looking forward to it.

We've had Harefield watched twice now and both reports are very similar, so we know a bit about them.

But we've got to concentrate on ourselves, because that's our main job - to make sure we're right.

We know that if we do our jobs and in the right way to the best of our ability, we can cause them a lot of problems.

That's what we'll concentrate on, because we realise we've got to earn the right to play football as it doesn't just happen.

They're a good side. They're top of their league and doing really well.

They're a strong outfit, really organised, and they score a lot of goals, so it's going to be a tough game.

If we get ourselves right and get a little bit of luck as well, which you need in every cup competition, we know we've got the ability and quality to cause them problems on the day.

We're hoping that the fans will turn out in numbers again.

It's not just Vase games, but this year the crowds are there for everyone to see.

We've been getting massive crowds compared to everyone else in the league.

We're hoping for another bumper crowd because they make such a difference, and I've said it before and I'll say it again, they're the best supporters in the league by a mile.

If they can get behind us like they always do, and make plenty of noise and do their bit, they can help us get into the next round.

We can all play a part and it's going to be a cracking game, weather permitting.
