Home comforts for Lowestoft Town
Lowestoft Town return to home comforts tonight buoyed by their excellent comeback draw at promotion rivals Tonbridge Angles at the weekend.
Midtable Billericay are the visitors to Crown Meadow (7.45pm), with Town having picked up four points and progress in the Championship Manager Cup all away from home last week.
And having gone 3-0 down at Tonbridge on Saturday within half an hour, Town clawed their way back for an excellent point.
“We haven’t conceded too many goals this year, so it was disappointing to concede the goals in the manner we did – two from corners and one from a counter attack after giving good possession away,” said Ady Gallagher, part of Town’s management team.
“But it’s just important to concentrate on the positives really and the manner in which the players responded to the situation they were in to an in-form side was fantastic.
“It highlights the spirit and the quality within the club that we felt we could come back and with a bit more time we could’ve won the game.
“But on the back of an incredibly tough week, going away to two tough sides and playing Cheshunt in the Cup, and picking up four points in the two league games was a great effort.”
Town will have the same squad available tonight, while Adrian Forbes is close to a return to training after a niggling knee injury.
Matt Nolan remains a doubt with an Achilles injury and Andrew Cave-Browm could miss out due to a slight knock.
n Norwich United have completed the loan signings of Lowestoft’s Carl Poppy and Jon Lovelock in time for tonight’s home game against Great Yarmouth Town at Plantation Park, kick-off 7.45pm.
The Trawler Boys pair have signed for the Planters to the end of the season. United are also waiting on international clearance for Marc Campbell although he is unlikely to be eligible to face the Bloaters.
