Jay's Friday Briefing


Jay speaks with Matt Davison ahead of tomorrow's long journey to Devon, to play Cornwall's Truro City

We make our longest trip of the season on Saturday as we travel the 480 mile round trip to Plymouth to play Truro City.

The three game unbeaten run ended on Tuesday and manager Jay Saunders is expecting a reaction from his players:

"When you lose 4-1 you don't see many positives but the first 25 minutes we had the better chances, conceded and went downhill.  We've had a recovery session and went through analysis, things we can do. We've had three decent results and came up against Farnborough who were very clinical. It's a long trip but it's one that's winable.

"When you're constantly changing your back four, or your back five, it's really difficult. I felt we had to get Waggy back in midfield so Jordan came in there. There are things people don't see.  We dug out three good results and we've got to bounce back on Saturday. I went there in the play-off semi-final with Maidstone when they were in Truro. They're like Taunton, big, organised, they know their jobs, but it's winnable."

Ethan Sutcliffe made his debut as a substitute against Farnborough on Tuesday night and he is expected to be involve this weekend too.  

Jay said:  "He's someone we were speaking about but he went to King's Lynn for a month. He's thought of well at Wimbledon and comes in after we lost Kodi. He comes in for a month initially and we can look at it after that. As for the team news we'll have a look on the day."
