Confident Basford travel to Scarborough on Saturday

By Neil McGowan

Basford United travel to Scarborough Athletic on Saturday (3.0) full of confidence after Monday’s six goal haul, says Martin Carruthers.

The manager added:
“Monday’s result was a perfect response following the FA Cup exit. The performance was excellent and also we kept our first clean sheet of the season.

“After the Cup defeat it’s fair to say there was some debate about what went wrong with everyone airing their views.

“Everyone agreed on the way forward and we spoke about restricting opponents and not allowing them room to play and the team responded in great fashion.

“We’ll be going to Scarborough full of confidence, but it will be a big test for us, they are a strong well organised team with a lot of good players and they will have the backing of a big crowd.

“James Walshaw will be a real threat to us, he is a class striker. We want to go there, keep it tight and see how the game develops.

“We hope to have Liam Hearn and Dom Roma involved again, even though they may start on the bench, we shall have to see how they react to training.”
