20220810 Next Up -  Stourbridge Away on Saturday

Tamworth travel to Stourbridge on Saturday (KO 3.00pm) looking to get a first win under their belts following the 1 – 1 draw at home to Ilkeston Town last Saturday.

Manager Andy Peaks was encouraged with the performance but was also disappointed with the chances not converted. “When we scored it felt like a win, the lads showed a lot of character to come back and we deserved the point, but it should have been a win. “After 60 mins I was disappointed that we were not firmly in the driving seat based on possession and the chances that came our way. “When you are on top of teams you have to kill them off and my biggest criticism after the game was that we were not clinical enough.”

Looking ahead to the game at Stourbridge Andy knows it will be a tough game, “We are looking at different things in training this week. “A couple of players have knocks that we hope will clear up for the weekend, but I will select 18 players on Friday and then narrow this down to the 16 when we get to the ground. “Everyone is in contention for the game, I thought there were a lot of positives that came out of Saturday. “I have some reports and homework about Stourbridge which I am reviewing, and there could be some changes to the system or players as we go along. “We have to have different ways of playing and different formations and adopt different tactics against different teams. “I know the management at Stourbridge very well and I am expecting a difficult game. “They lost last week at Alvechurch, and the management will be looking for a reaction. “It is never an easy place to go to and it is their first home game where they will be looking to put in a good performance for their fans.”
