Marcus Laws thoughts on the FA Cup

Sunday Oct 30, 2011

FA Cup with BudweiserThe Lambs progressed through to the 1st Round Proper of the FA Cup and have been handed an away trip to Hinckley United on Saturday Nov 12 after the Knitters defeated Darlington by 3 goals to nil in a Tuesday night replay at the Greene King Stadium.

"It was a difficult affair (against Kings Lynn Town) and the pressure was all on us. I thought that we did let it get to us at times and we weren't able to play the game we wanted to, it didn't suit us.
Then there was obviously more pressure on us after their early goal which made the tie more difficult.
And although I was pleased with how we worked to get the lead, their 'keeper made some great stops and that always gives his team in front of him more confidence, especially when we weren't able to take our chances as I would have hoped we had. But we showed added strength not only mentally but physically and that is what saw us through in the end, and a win is a win in the cup.

"With regard to the draw, there is a great deal of 'hindsight' that goes along with cup competitions but we have no way of choosing our own opponents so we will approach the game as we do every game. It makes no difference who we drew at the end of the day. It would be disrespectful to say we wanted a league side at home or an easy draw away or anything like that. If we perform at each stage and win the games and eventually end up with a 'prize' of a Premiership team then that will be fantastic but we will treat everyone with same respect as we meet them - there is no easy or ideal path through to the next round as everyone wants the same rewards for their club, both on the field and off it and everyone works extra hard to try and achieve it.

I'll be going along to the replay to see if we are handed a local derby at Hinckley or and extra trip to Darlington in November, and I'll be looking to going to watch Kidderminster take on Corby on Wednesday in their replay too. Callum Reynolds is on loan at Corby so I can see how he is getting on and also watch next weekends opposition. Unfortunately, it seems as though Connor Gudger has picked up an injury (on loan at Hinckley) and may not be able to complete his loan spell with them so we wish him a speedy recovery."
