  • Sarll on Saturday's FA Cup tie...

“I am sure it is a big game they are very much looking forward to and one that excites their players and staff. It will be a change for them in terms of coming to the type of ground that we are very fortunate to have and to play against full-time players.

“It will be a tough game and we will give them the respect they deserve for the fact they have got themselves to the First Round.

“Logically we are the favourites of course. The FA Cup always makes people play 20% better. If you play a team in the lower division, you can watch them as much as you like and if you add 20%, that is what they will be.

“We are respectful of their qualities and analytical of their weakness.

“Because I was an amateur and non-league player myself, it isn’t too hard to give a view of that player to our players now.

“I think it is a fantastic competition and we all know anything can happen. There is no cup like it."

  • Sarll on turning recent form around... 

“You can only work. There is no magic formula. We had a couple of extended periods last year where we didn’t win games, the only thing you can do is consistently drive a work ethic.

“The only time I am really worried about these periods is when the players aren’t putting the work that is expected of them.

“Last Saturday despite a poor performance from us, we ran more than any other game this year.

"We made horrible mistakes and all you can do is keep working, putting the time in on the training pitch, keep focusing the players minds and we will get there.

“It is a great group of players and we will come out the other side.”

  • Sarll on the fitness of Matty Godden and Ben Kennedy...

“Matty should be OK, touch wood. He should be fine but he hasn’t done too much in the last six or seven days.

“Ben will be out a while whilst we get it right. He had a flare up of a previous problem and he is 20, we don’t want to drag 20 year olds through the mud and make them pay in pain just to get them through three or four games.

"We would rather nail the problem, find the solution and have him for the rest of the season.”
