Buildbase FA Trophy Preliminary Round
Saturday 12th October 2019
Kick Off @ 3:00pm
Tomorrow afternoon we begin our Buildbase FA Trophy campaign when we welcome Corby Town to Bridge Road for our Preliminary Round tie.
The Steelmen will be familiar opponents to Stutes supporters as the two sides have met plenty of times in the past, the most recent of which saw Town take all three points home with them thanks to a 2-1 win at Bridge Road back in April 2015 when we were playing in the Southern League.
Although we’ve met plenty of times in the past, tomorrow will be our first meeting in the FA Trophy and it will no doubt be another good contest. Town have had a good start to their season in the BetVictor Southern Central Division, in which they are unbeaten after 8 games and currently trail only Berkhamstead by 3 points but with a game in hand. They were in action on Wednesday night when goals from Jordan Crawford and Gary Mulligan saw them come from a goal behind and a man down to beat Barton Rovers at Steel Park.
Lance and his squad will go into this game with confidence after three wins on the bounce. Ed Rolph and Dan Brown have both bagged hat-tricks in those games and the front pair are in good form. The manager has a few injuries to contend with though so will have a few decisions to make before submitting the team sheet tomorrow for what promises to be a cracking afternoon of football.
If the scores are level after 90 minutes we will replay at Steel Park on Wednesday 16th October, kick off @ 7:45pm.
