CHAPPO'S CORNER



IT has been a great week for us and the boys have been different class.

We are well pleased with all of them - their attitude, application and the results have been first class and we could not ask for any more.

CHAPPO'S CORNER

IT has been a great week for us and the boys have been different class.

We are well pleased with all of them - their attitude, application and the results have been first class and we could not ask for any more.

There was another huge crowd of over 700 there on Saturday, which is top drawer, to see a game against a very physical side in difficult conditions.

We didn't play well as a unit in the first half but the boys responded in the second half and scored two good goals through Matt Nolan's penalty and Dale Cockrill firing in a well-worked move.

We thoroughly deserved the win and our boys were fantastic as we produced a solid, workmanlike performance to secure another three points in the league.

Wednesday's midweek trip to Waltham Forest was always going to difficult in difficult conditions on an atrocious pitch. The conditions meant we didn't play great football, but it was a great result in the end.

We went 2-0 up with two good goals scored through Nolan and Scott Mitchell's fantastic free kick. In the second half Waltham were very direct with the elements, but we kept our shape well up to them scoring late on.

But we held on for another three points and me, Ady, Flem and Dave are all very proud of the lads for gaining another six points this week.

We now look forward to tomorrow's game with Leyton and hopefully another big crowd will turn out as we look to make Crown Meadow a Fortress and a difficult place to come. We drew down there 1-1 on an awful pitch, so we know it will be tough tomorrow.

But sides are not used to playing in front big crowds like we have and I'm sure they'll be very vocal, as the fans are like a 12th man to us.

We're going to take it one game at a time at the moment and the boys know that they will have to go out there and put in a shift to earn the right to produce.

Bradley Hough is back in training, while Carl Poppy and Reece Hunn have been back playing in the reserves - so apart from the long term injuries to Richard Woodrow and Jack Marsden we have a full fit squad to pick from.
