Weston-Super-Mare Preview

15 January 2016

PAUL Hurst is likely to make several changes for the visit of Weston-Super-Mare - but not the major changes that we saw against Solihull in round one. The Town boss has no new injury concerns but is conscious that the Mariners  could be heading to Bromley on Tuesday night for a Vanarama National League fixture.

He said: "I'm trying to pick a team to win the game, first and foremost. I've said that, I want to progress. But I am conscious of the fact that we've got a game on Tuesday as well. 

"There will be some changes but it wont be as wholesale as in the previous round. 

"I think it is about the players that I think will benefit from not being in the team on Saturday, rather than particular areas. The lads who will get a little breather will probably be for the knocks that they have carried for a little while."

Speaking of Saturday's opponents, the Town boss said: "There's a little bit of the unknown. We've had a look at the team and the line-up, but there's a lot of names that I haven't come across in the past.

"But, while the research will take place between now and the weekend, a lot of it is about ourselves. No disrespect to the opposition, but I believe that if we are right  and play anywhere near what I know we are capable of, then we will have a good chance of progressing." 

If the scores are level after 90 minutes, we would travel to Somerset on Tuesday evening (7.45pm) meaning that night's scheduled league trip to Bromley would have to be rearranged.

Admission prices for this game are £10 Adults, £5 Concessions and £1 for Juniors.
