Interim manager, Pete Whitehouse, previews the Meadowmen’s away trip to Harrowby United in the first round of the FA Vase this weekend.
His side will have felt hard done by after falling to defeat in the league in midweek, to Wem Town despite a dominant performance in both halves.
Whitehouse understands that to get past the Arrows on Saturday, Bridgnorth will have to be on top of their game.
On the fixture and opponents:
“I’m sure it will be a tough game, they are flying in their league and on an unbeaten run. We’re under no illusions about how tough the game will be and we’ll have to be at our best to get a positive result from the game.”
On the competition:
“Cup competitions like the FA Vase are an important revenue stream for clubs at our level, even more so in today’s climate with the effect that COVID-19 has had on the non-league scene. Any extra revenue that clubs at our level can bring in will help secure the future of the club, which is the most important thing.
“Every game that we progress from now, makes more club history and we are fully aware that those are our aims.”
On preparation for the game:
“We’ll approach the game in a similar manner to the last couple of games. We’re under no illusions on what we need to improve on, but it’s equally important to accentuate the positives.
“We’re a fantastic team going forwards and have the ability to hurt teams when we have the ball. If we can tighten up defensively we won’t be far away, that’s easier said than done when we’ve had to deal with injuries and players self-isolating.”
