The Magpies hit the road again on Wednesday 15th October along the M3 to take on Farnborough for a 19:45 kick-off.
Last Saturday Farnborough who are languishing just one place about the relegation zone in 19th place lost 3-2 away at Swindon Supermarine.
Manager Danny Holmes reflecting about Wednesdays upcoming match told Radio Wimborne; “We believe in the lads, there will be a little bit of rotation because we’ve got a good size team. I don’t want the boys taking it personal, but we have the beauty of that.”
Hopefully, 12th placed Magpies can get back to winning ways after suffering a home 3 nil defeat in the rain against Tiverton Town on Saturday.
Holmes added; “We’ve got to go defensive minded but catch them on the counterattack. We go one game at a time, I just feel that we’ve got to keep doing what we’re doing, and we’ll be fine. Mentally we’ve got to believe in what we do.”
The league table is starting to take shape and looking very interesting with the points very tight between places, although with some matches postponed and cup runs there may be a few surprises over the coming weeks.
Holmes concluded; “I think defensively we’re fine, we’ve nullified most sides, it’s just a case that we’ve got to be a bit more clinical in the final third on the ball, I think it will come, it’s early days still.”
