Friday Night Round Up from the Lamb
Fri 28 Jan 2022 - 5:46PM
Lambs media spoke to Thomas Baillie this afternoon and he said that everybody is looking forward to the game against Rushall Olympic. “We have done a lot of work to improve the squad, the momentum behind the scenes and things in the dressing room are a lot more stable. “However, as fans will have seen we have not been good enough. “In parts of games we have played very well but we have got nothing. “The game at Stratford epitomised what we're about - in the final 20 minutes we had plenty of play, but we were toothless in front of goal, and we have got to be better. “Every player needs to do more and if we improve in the final third, we will see a different side. “In training this week we have tried a few different things and we will see if it improves things tomorrow. “We are looking for players to justify themselves and make it difficult to drop them. “Thankfully in the next few weeks we don't have any midweek games which will help us focus on some new things.”
In terms of the squad Aaron Forde will be fit to play, but a couple of players have bugs which Tom is hoping they will recover from in time. Unfortunately, Alex Jones is still a few weeks away from being fit. Whaib Tahra has signed today after recently moving to England from France. The 23 years old striker impressed in training this week and scored twice in a behind closed doors training game.
Tom recalled the game at Rushall earlier in the season “It was an unbelievable game where probably both teams were equal in the first half, however, Rushall were far the better side in the second half but a couple of pieces of brilliance from Dan Creaney saw us win the game. “The players are in good spirits and are looking forward to the game tomorrow.”
In other news our game away at Stourbridge next Saturday has a 2.30pm kick off due to the floodlights currently not being in use due to electrical issues. Please also note that there are no cash turnstiles at Stourbridge and tickets must be purchased online form their ticketing site. We will let supporters know when the tickets are on sale for the game
