It's a quick return to action for Town on Tuesday night when the face Burgess Hill Town in the quarter final of the Velocity Trophy. The game kicks off at Donkey Lane at 7.45 and both teams will be hoping for a win to get their season back on track.
The Hillians are currently stuck in 19th spot in the league one place above the drop zone. They were not helped at the weekend by a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Bognor Regis. It's not been a great season for the Sussex side so far but maybe they are just edging their way out of the relegation mire. Some cup success would be welcome relief so Town need to be wary how they approach this one. They have come this far in the cup thanks to wins over Faversham, Tooting and Hythe and they will be taking this very seriously. It will certainly be a distraction ahead of a run of relegation battles with games against Hornchurch, Whitehawk and Harlow coming up.
Town will be looking to erase the memory of the defeat on Saturday against form team Merstham. Only a goal separated the sides, but Town will need to be more clinical in their finishing if the are to progress to the semi final. The win over Maldon in the last round seems a long time ago now, but everyone will be focused on the chance to go into the next round and doing what is required. Get along to support the team into the next round!
