The Linnets entertain Stratford Town on Saturday (The Walks 3PM) as their focus returns to the collection of more Southern Premier division points. With much talk of the following weekends FA Cup trip to Nuneaton Town boss Ian Culverhouse is keen to remind everyone of the age old football saying of ‘one game at a time’.
"I have seen and heard all the talk of the FA Cup but before all of that we have Stratford on Saturday and let’s not forget another league game next week. The squad to be fair to them are focused only on the next game and that’s the way it has to be.
"Stratford will present us with another strong test and we will find out where we are on our road of progression to where we want to be. It has, from my point of view, been good to have a clear last week. We have trained very well and discussed and put into practice some different things I want to try out.
"It’s also given a chance for some of the knocks to be rested and to get the energy levels back up – the game at St Ives and then again last weekend were played in some very warm, sapping conditions’.
Culverhouse continued "We need to continue with the start we have made to maintain our good position, The supporters have been fantastic to us recently and between the team and the crowd I would really like to make The Walks a fortress for the season ahead.
We have a long way to go and the season is still very young but we have already made some positive steps which I am very keen to see us continue.
The Reserves travel to their counterparts from AFC Sudbury in the Thurlow Nunn League Division one.
It was a bad night for the Linnets youth team last night who went down to a heavy 8-1 defeat in the FA Youth Cup against a very strong AFC Sudbury side.
