Fakenham Town boss after cup tonic
Fakenham Town manager Andy Cunningham is backing his side to follow up Friday evening’s victory over King’s Lynn Town Reserves when they travel to March Town in the KO Cup tomorrow night.
The Ghosts travel to March in the Thurlow Nunn First Division Knockout Cup (7.45pm kick-off) and the Clipbush Park chief is aiming for a confidence boosting victory over the Hares.
“I thought we were excellent against Lynn on Friday, now we need to follow that up,” Cunningham told the Lynn News.
“We know the start of the season hasn’t been as strong as we had hoped for, but we had some very tough tests and I am pleased with the performances; we haven’t always got what we deserved.
“March is a chance for us to build on Friday’s win, back-to-back wins in any competition breeds confidence and we could do with a bit of a boost.
“We know it won’t be easy, March are tough to break down and hard to beat but we go there on a high and looking to build some momentum.
“If we can start to build that momentum and go on a bit of a run we will soon climb the table; that’s why I am taking Tuesday’s cup game seriously – a win is a win and it would be great for the club to go on a run in a cup this year.”
Harry Exley and Alby Matthews were on target in the victory over Lynn’s second string, who replied through Freddie Collison at Clipbush Park.
Fakenham’s Friday night victory leaves them 13th in the league standings – just two points behind King’s Lynn Town Reserves in tenth spot.
Also in the Knockout Cup action on Tuesday are Swaffham Town who host Wisbech St Mary at Shoemakers Lane.
