PREVIEW | Bulls Looking To Build At The Brakes

07th February 2019 by Andy Poole - Latest News,Preview

THE BULLS are back on the road this weekend, although this time we’re not clocking up the miles of recent excursions as we make our first-ever visit to the Philips 66 Community Stadium, home of Leamington.

We head into the game on the back of a much-needed victory at York City on Tuesday evening where we came from behind to take the points courtesy of goals from Danny Greenslade – his second in as many games – and recent loan arrival, James Waite, who certainly made an impact in his first outing for the club.

The Cardiff City youngster entered the action at the start of the second half and put in a lively display, which was rewarded with the winning goal.

“We changed our shape at half-time and I was told to go on and try to change the game,” said Waite. “Thankfully I was able to help the team do that and get the three points.

“I just wanted to support the play, get shots off as often as I could and basically get in and around the box and cause problems.”

The victory means that we sit just two points behind Saturday’s hosts, who find themselves in 14th place in the table.

The Brakes tasted victory in the League for the first time since November 20th in their last game as they ran out 3-0 winners against Altrincham.

It ended a run of ten League games without a win, although seven of those matches ended in draws.

At the helm is the popular Paul Holleran who is now in his tenth season with the club, during which time he has guided them to this level on two separate occasions. His side have won four of their 14 home League games this term.

We last locked horns in August when The Bulls ran out 2-1 winners as we came from behind to take the points courtesy of Harry White’s penalty and a late strike from Jamie Bird.

For Head Coach, Marc Richards, it is an opportunity for us to build on Tuesday’s impressive second half showing at Bootham Crescent.

“I thought that our second half performance on Tuesday was really good to see,” he said. “I know what this group of players are capable of, and I think we saw that in the second half at York.

“I was also really pleased on Tuesday with the fitness of the players. I thought in the second half we were quicker, stronger and kept going for longer than our hosts. When you consider that we were up against a full-time team I thought we finished the game much stronger.

“The lads have really put the hard work in over the past few months; when I arrived we increased training and we introduced the Strength and Conditioning sessions and I really think that the hard work is starting to bear fruit in terms of our strength, stamina and general fitness.

“We’ve put some miles in on the road over the past three away games, so Saturday will give us the chance to play a lot closer to home than of late.

“We don’t want any complacency setting in; we’ve had a few good performances on the road, but we must keep doing the basics right and keep working hard.

“We trained on Thursday evening, we’ll prepare as we always do, we’ve got some big games coming up so we will need to be at our best.

“I know a few of the Leamington players, we know how they like to play. We’ve watched them and will do all the usual preparation that goes into every game, but the most important thing is how we perform on the day ourselves.

“If you constantly look at the table, constantly worrying about where we are then it will have an impact on you. I want the players to focus on the process of each game, on their performance and controlling the things that they can control.

“We can’t control what other teams do, but we can control our own performance, and that’s the mindset I want the players to take with them into matches.

“The travelling fans at York were tremendous, and that level of noise from the stands and terraces really can have a positive effect on the players out on the pitch. The fans should never underestimate how much they can help the lads, and I thought that the players really responded well on Tuesday night.

“Looking ahead to Saturday, hopefully we’ll travel in numbers and really get behind the lads.”
