The boys were fantastic against Dereham in the FA Cup and were different class on the day.

They really played well and it was a top drawer performance from start to finish.

The boys were fantastic against Dereham in the FA Cup and were different class on the day.

They really played well and it was a top drawer performance from start to finish. The attitude, the tempo of the game and the quality they showed - everything about the performance was first class.

What we've got to strive for is consistency and everybody wants that and at the moment we're getting with results.

It was always going to be a tough game because Dereham are a good side, but I think they'll admit that on the day they were second best to us.

We always say to the lads you have to grind teams down and match them in all areas if you want to play the football we like to play and that's what happened.

They went 1-0 up against the run of play and it was a poor goal to concede but we kept our shape, stayed organised and continued to press.

We carried on attacking and we felt the goal would come and it did. It was a good move down the right and there was Reece Hunn to clip it over the goalkeeper.

In the second we started the same way as we did in the first half and got the two goals, with a direct free-kick from Adam Smith and we finished the game off with a third from Gary McGee after an excellent move down the left, a cross and Gary volleyed into the corner.

We fully deserved it. All in all it was a very good day at the office and it was a team effort yet again and we were just pleased to get into the next round.

The draw was Monday and it's fantastic to get Boston United!

We're pleased with a home draw and against a quality side from a higher level who were in League Two only two seasons ago.

It's a mouthwatering tie for us and we're expecting a big crowd. Last Saturday the fans turned out in their droves for us and made a lot of noise and got behind the boys and another big thank you to them as they make such a difference.

We always say we take one game at a time and before Boston we've got a difficult game in the league at Romford tomorrow. It's another tough game we'll be going down there knowing it will be difficult.

Romford haven't conceded many goals although on Tuesday they had three players sent off and lost 6-0. I think when they went down to eight men they conceded four goals so we're not going to read anything into that and Saturday's a different game.

Bradley Hough and Jack Marsden are still long term injuries. Jamie Godbold went off against Dereham and we feared the worst, but luckily it's just bruising and swelling and we'll make a decision on whether to include. Apart from him Matty Potter is missing due to FA coaching commitments and we'll be picking from a strong squad.
