Yesterday was a good open game and a credit to both sides. I went to Sutton-in-Ashfield in trepidation fearing a repeat of the Cheltenham Town game of some seasons back. Cheltenham were on the verge of winning the league and promotion to the football league.

We lost 3-0 at Cheltenham but we're completely out played from start to finish. Yesterday we competed well and of Zac''s shot had hit the back of the net who knows.

Sutton are a very good side. They had obviously done their homework and it was significant how their defenders double up every time one of our wingers got the ball. As with the Ebbsfleet game of a few seasons back, another critical determining factor was that both teams are effectively full-time. The stamina factor was key in the two matches.

At least we have made a bit of money out of the Trophy games so perhaps it can be used to strengthen the squad for the run in to hopefully the play-offs.
