Bruno Andrade got his third goal in as many games against Torquay and will be hoping to make it four in four against the Shots.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“It will be a tough game, I have seen all four of their fixtures and he gets them playing in a way that’s very expansive, where they try and dominate the ball.

“I think that they have got good personnel across the board, so I can envisage that it is going to be our toughest test yet.

“They went close last year; they had a late surge for the playoffs at the back end of last season and were unlucky not to beat Tranmere Rovers in the semi-final.

“He hasn’t changed much in terms of recruitment, but I think that he has got a squad there that he trusts and who believe in him.

“But Saturday is about us and what we do and how we go about our game plan and we want to try and kick on us as much as we can.

“It has come thick and fast; we have played Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday and while we will get a rest in a week, it is then Saturday, Monday.

“So, fitness is going to be key for us, we are only a small group and getting people on the pitch is fundamental.

“I feel that if we can play at the level that we did against Torquay and in the second halves of Dagenham and Solihull, then we can cause problems.”
