After returning from a long weekend away on the South Coast with a point from Eastbourne Borough, next up for Gary Mills' Lambs is the squads fourth away game in five and a trip to Kenilworth Road, Luton.
"We're really looking forward to it but the players are under no pressure to do any more than they have been doing all season. We will go there believing in ourselves and try our best to keep the excellent form going. You could describe it as a David v Goliath tie as we have a small squad and they are a big ex-league club but I can only see it as being a bonus as it should bring that extra bit out of my players.
"Most of them have played the best part of 23 games this season so far (including pre-season). Including Eastbourne we've been away from home four times in the last five winning two and drawing three. And we've only lost once. My players are giving everything and it's full credit to them all - so if we can't get a win on Saturday then we definitely don't want to lose."
Tamworth's point at Priory Lane Eastbourne was the seventh draw of the season for The Lambs in 13 league games which saw them drop to seventh in the table but only a couple of points seperate them from the places above them.
"It was another away point and a long away point at that. We had one of those days where we didn't pass or retain the ball like we know we can and the home side played well coming at us and causing some problems. But we defended when we had to and didn't capitulate. It has been said they could have had a penalty as the game went on but I couldn't see the incident clearly and obviously the referee and his assistants didn't see it either so really there's no question mark over it. It's one of those situations that we've had go against us already this season so we're absolutely delighted with the final result - my players gave their all once again"
