THE LAMBS made it ten League games unbeaten with victory at Gainsborough Trinity on Tuesday evening and now we look to extend that run further on Saturday as we return to home soil for the visit of Bradford Park Avenue...
The Yorkshire club have just one win from their nine League games so far, but our main thoughts this week have been with Lee Smith who suffered a horror injury in the last game.
"All the lads are worried about Lee," said Andy Burns of his team-mate. "It certainly overshadowed the win on Tuesday night and we just want him to have a quick recovery now.
"We have a WhatsApp group and all the lads have been on there wishing him well.
"We have a tight-knit group here and Lee knows that anything he wants he will get it.
"I am sure on Saturday, Lee will get mentioned. We will want to win the game on Saturday for Lee and give a good performance for him.
"He's put a lot into the early weeks of the season so far and he will now miss some of the campaign.
"I am sure he will be looking at the result on Saturday though so we want a positive one for him."
Burns, though, expects Bradford to provide the Lambs with a stiff test but says his team-mates should enter the clash full of confidence.
"I have played against Bradford before and they are difficult opponents," he added. "We know that anyone can beat anyone on their day and that will be the case this weekend.
"If we turn up with the right mentality and the right attitude then I am confident we can get a good result.
"It's down to us as players to make sure that we turn up and do the business.
"I think we felt that we needed to start taking the games to the opposition more.
"We did really well in the first half on Tuesday and put ourselves in control. We made hard work of it in the second half but games are like that at times. Teams do come out fighting and won't just roll over.
"But we saw the game out well and got a clean sheet, which is really pleasing and that gives us a platform to kick on from. We are unbeaten in 10 games and we are up where we want to be, challenging."
Come along and show your support this weekend!
