From the Dugout – Luke Garrard
“We are the only side who are playing in the top 11 on Tuesday, so that is an added incentive for the players.
“If we can go and get maximum points against Maidenhead, then we can go second, going into the game against Macclesfield. Top versus second, live on the box.
“It is a nice little carrot to have, and I know Maidenhead have gone to Macclesfield today and only lost by a last-minute winner.
“But, Maidenhead are tough, and I will say it again, every single team at this level are tough. They all have different styles, shapes and personnel, so we will work on them on Monday and hopefully, get maximum points come Tuesday.
“They have got good energy, they have got good legs and they have got good personnel in Barratt and Pritchard, who is playing ever so well at the minute.
“They have got good organisation in Devonshire, they play a certain way and they collar for each other, so, it is going to be tough, it is going to be very tough.”
