From the Dugout – Luke Garrard
“Maidstone lost to Barrow on Saturday and they are going to want a reaction. They have recruited ever so well in the last week, to bring in the likes of Dean Beckwith, Will De Havilland, our boy Blair Turgott and Ross Lafayette, so he has bolstered his squad.
“It is about what we do, we like it under the lights, we like a midweek and I feel that there is an added incentive, for what reason I don’t know.
“Especially with this pitch, it is going to play lovely, and yeah we are fully focused come training on Monday.
“We have got to put a performance on to warrant three points come Tuesday evening.
“We can’t affect what goes on at Aldershot, Macclesfield, Tranmere, Bromley, we have got to control the controllable and it is about us winning games and Saturday we done that.”
