Excerpts from the Chairman's programme notes...

  • On last Saturday’s game at Accrington…

“Last Saturday we looked a different side with the injection of 3 new players secured in the transfer window starting for the first time.

"We raced into a two-goal lead with superb goals from Matty Godden and Mark McKee and then failed to get anything from the game, which poses defensive questions that I am sure will have been addressed during this past week.

“I was disappointed for the lads last Saturday, but we had no luck at all and sometimes that is the way it goes. We hit the bar, hit the post and see their keeper make a great save and they get a deflection that ends up in the back of the net."

  • On facing stern opposition in Luton Town…

“Our opponents sit at the top of the league and Nathan Jones has put a very good squad together. They are certainly where they are on merit and look certain to move into League One come May. Their gates of consistently 5000+ more than ours dictates that they can go for players we haven’t a chance of affording.

“Combined with some significant income from transfer fees, this really is their year and they have spent their money well.

"Games like today provide the opportunity for us to show that team spirit, organisation and desire can be a great leveller and we will be looking to avenge the heavy defeat we took at Kenilworth Road earlier in the season.”

  • On the continuing North Stand work…

“Each time we play at home, you will see a little more of the old North Stand removed. Demolition is scheduled to finish on 25th February and we are hoping to start the groundworks the following week.

“It will be a while before any steelwork goes up, but by the time July comes around we would hope to have all the football side of the stand complete, with the internal bar areas being completed during August.”
