Frome – We dominated this game from start to finish against a depleted Frome side. While I was sympathetic about their problems we had to be ruthless in our approach and that was the case particularly in the second half.
I had the opportunity to rest certain players and give other players a chance to get valuable playing minutes. With us facing four games in seven days I will need to utilise the whole squad so be warned there will be rotation.
Kettering – I am sure both teams will be keen to break their scoring duck in this fixture after three consecutive goalless draws between the teams. Kettering have had an excellent season and are assured of their play-off position.
They are in the middle of a crowded run of fixtures and it will be interesting to see what team they play against us. But we can be assured it will be a tough fixture whatever team they decide to play.
Slough – Like Kettering Slough have had a very busy time but despite this they have been on a run of victories despite rotating their squad. We were well beaten in the reverse fixture so we owe Slough some revenge. It will of course be good to welcome Matt Lench back to Top Field along with his parents who have often visited us this season when Slough have not been playing.
Didcot – I have already previewed this game twice so first and foremost let us hope the game finally gets played. This is the BigFreeBet.Com Cup Final and it is 12 years since we last won the league Cup at Bromsgrove. It is a massive game for us as we want to win silverware for a third successive season and the £4,000 prize money is very attractive. Didcot are having a fine season and we have had them watched and know they are a good footballing side.
I once again appeal for our supporters to come out in large numbers to make that vital difference. The players are desperate to reward the supporters with another cup win and I will not have an easy time choosing my cup final team.
