After last week's cracking result I don't see the need to change anything. Let's hope everyone's fit and available and attack Barwell from the start.
I think we owe this lot one don't we?

Lets get some consistency into it and follow up on last weeks incredible win, Barwell are not what they used to be so we have a good chance of getting a point at the very least for sure.

Barwell still have Brady Hickey playing for them and he has always performed well when playing against us for the ‘Scottish team’ and, of course, scoring the winning goal a few seasons back in the FA Cup replay at the Dog & Duck for Barwell.

I expect it to be a very tight match.

<BUMP> Bit of a windy day at Hayden Road today - hopefully it calms a bit for tomorrow.

Check out Jon Dunham's article ahead of the match.

Could be an interesting bench today. With players leaving or not available will we even have five subs.?

The suggestion in Jon Dunham's article about Joel's departure was that three players might return to the squad. I hope we stick to the players who did so well at Needham Market, with either Dean or Hopkins taking the place of the departed Gyasi until we find a replacement.

I thought we were marginally the better side overall but it was another home match devoid of any real attacking quality. Important to pick up a point and keep some momentum going.

Our two full backs played very well and generally I felt we defended well. Albie Hopkins was the source of much of our good attacking play but some of the others weren’t able to contribute as much as they have done in other games.
They say we've lost our money we're not famous anymore.....

A real shame that Ben Farrell mislaid his shooting boots in the close season since he was our leading goalscorer last season. He had one or two decent opportunities just inside the box but has clearly lost his composure. I also thought we were marginally the better side today and can see this will be the pattern at this higher level, getting a point when perhaps we ought to be winning but that’s because we are lacking quality in the penalty box. We aren’t a million miles away and we’re still 11th in the table as there were many drawn games this afternoon. About where I thought we would be at the start of the season.

I've nothing much to add about the match, but a special mention must be made for those volunteers who contributed so much to our Non-League Day offering - giving us the top crowd of the day in our division.
