Having waited 35 days for a home game, we now face our second in just three days as we play host to Brackley Town on Tuesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).
We go into the game in good spirits following Saturday’s
victory over Darlington as we came back from two goals down at half-time to win
4-2 with a sparkling second half display.
The victory makes it five games unbeaten as we move nine
points clear of the bottom three, with a game in hand, and nine points shy of
the top ten.
There were a number of sub-plots to Saturday’s game with the
main one being Lance Smith’s return to action following a niggling ankle
injury. He marked the occasion by getting his name on the scoresheet with our
fourth goal in the closing stages.
Meanwhile Kyle Finn came off the bench to devastating effect
as he tore our north-east opponents apart during the second period.
“I felt really good when I came on,” admitted Finn. “It
opened up for us in that second half and once the first goal went in, we just
knew that we were going to win the game.
“We gave it a real go and it shows that we have the players
here to really be able to push on. It also helps playing in front of such a
passionate crowd and they certainly played their part at the weekend.
“Now we need more of the same on Tuesday evening for what
will be another tough game.”
Whilst we were celebrating at the final whistle on Saturday,
so too were Brackley Town as they chalked up a 1-0 home triumph over high-flying
Stockport County courtesy of Lee Ndlovu’s 76th minute winner.
It means that they have won ten of their last 12 games in
all competitions, including a 3-1 success here at Edgar Street in the Buildbase
FA Trophy in January.
They also beat us 2-0 at St. James Park in September as
Ndlovu was joined on the scoresheet by James Armson in a game which saw both
Eliot Richards and Calvin Dinsley dismissed.
Kevin Wilkin’s side sit fourth in the table with 57 points
from their 33 League games. They have won six of their 16 League games on enemy
territory and having finished seventh and third in the last two seasons, they
are once more very much part of the leading pack and have been so throughout
