The Robins skipper Sam Bearman has previewed his side’s trip to face S&L Corby in the ChromaSport & Trophies League, Division 1 on Saturday.
Bearman told Sports Shots;
Firstly our recent game away to Harrowby Town two weeks ago was a massive disappointment to the team. We went there with a strong squad of 17 and hopes were high as we put 4 past them at home but from the off we were second best to everything from the first whistle! Fair play to them though they wanted it more all over the park. They looked a totally different side from our home game but on the day we just didn’t turn up!
Despite the defeat, Bearman believes the Robins are upbeat.
The mood in camp is still very positive considering a sticky spell over Christmas and new year. I have just come back from training and all the boy’s are looking hungry and fresh from recent games being called off and are looking to get things back on track.
The focus is still on promotion.
Our expectation is, as it has been all season, to take each game as it comes and see where we end up. Obviously looking to better last season and maybe with hard graft from the boy’s and push for that promotion place. The club itself is definitely going in the right direction to play at a higher level of football and if it doesn’t happen this year I’m sure it won’t be far off.
As for myself still enjoying playing for this club at the ripe old age of 43 and hopefully lead the team to a higher finish than last year and sign off in style by getting this club promotion.
Our next 8 games are against teams below us in the league and I believe we will look to push on now, starting by getting 3 points at S&L Corby on Saturday.
