Fakenham Town look to make it four successive wins in Thurlow Nunn League Division One North




Fakenham Town manager Andy Cunningham is backing his side to bounce back from a disappointing defeat at Norwich CBS on Tuesday when they return to Thurlow Nunn First Division North action tonight.

The Ghosts, who crashed out of the Thurlow Nunn League Challenge Cup after a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Norwich CBS in the week, will be looking to respond when they travel to the Wellesley to face Yarmouth Town (7.45pm).

Cunningham’s side go into fixture looking to record a fourth consecutive league victory and the Ghosts boss is confident his players will respond well after the midweek disappointment in the League Cup.

Cunningham said: “I always say to my players, you do not get too high when you win and you do not get too low when you lose.

“Tuesday night was a disappointing display, we didn’t do enough and although the score line was tough to take we have to dust ourselves down and move on.

“Our form in the league is good and we want to keep it that way.

“If we keep doing the things we have been doing in recent weeks then I am sure we can keep this excellent run going and push on up the table.

“Everyone in the dressing room wants to put Tuesday behind us and move on and that is the good thing about having games come so thick and fast.”
