3rd game in 6 days while doing double sessions. Really is no need to look into the score line at all.

Unless we win. In which case people will be talking about how big a win it is.

Decent work out against a team that on that showing will do O.K. in Conference North.
Thought our number 2 who played 90 mins did well. Hanson is going to be a real handful. The sort of player we always seem to face. Within 60 seconds of being on the pitch he'd laid one off and had a decent shot himself.
Whitehouse also impressed and Green's finish had all the signs of someone who knows where the goal is.
Slightly worried by their winner not from Battersby's perspective but the lad was given far too much time against probably our best defenders (at least on paper)


Battersby! He has aged since his last game v Grantham two days ago😂
Could be wrong Ian but I thought it was Sam Russell.

I highly doubt you are wrong! My eyesight clearly isn't what it was. The shot was a cracker though and Macca himself would've been tested!


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Never played football but competed in another sport at a reasonable evel - I don't understand how a professional athletes fitness can deteriorate so much in a 6week break? When listening to managers, players, fans, you'd think they'd lost most of it and need to regain fitness. Presumably its just a saying and players just need to find their feet after being away from competive matches. I would have thought fitness levels would be better after a break if anything
Stories from years ago of certain players in their 20s coming back a couple of stone over weight.

Match fitness, can only be achieved through playing games. Apparently (was never a plater at any great level).

During the season, they’re training most of the week and playing a professional football match once or twice a week. During the break they’re....not.

Pretty easy to see why fitness/sharpness would drop off.

Let's put this into perspective, it's hardly a do or die game and more about getting some match time into the players legs and also integrating the new boys into the team...
My god, Accrington did Marseille 2-1 last night, it doesn't mean Accrington are going to be European champions or that Marseille are no better cannon fodder!!...

It's not fitness as such, it's sharpness.  The days of players coming back overweight and hanging at the first training session are largely in the past now.  You only have to look at the pictures of the Town players on the first day of training to see that they keep themselves fit in the off-season.  

The general fitness will remain, they'll still be very, very fit lads who will put the vast majority of regular folk to shame.  That extra edge, specifically match fitness, is very easy to lose in any sport.
