Although Tamworth were unable to make it three out of three on Tuesday night against Altrincham, Gary Mills was upbeat about the game, especially the first half even though his side were left to rue missed chances before falling to two second half goals.
Next match sees The Lambs travel back down to London and a few short miles from the scene of last Saturday's win as Grays Athletic is the destination with a 3pm kick off (Sat 28 Nov).

"We dominated the first half", Mills said after the 2-0 reversal at home to Altrincham, "we had the ball in their area a lot but paid the price for not taking ouu chances in the second half.
"The wind didn't help matters at all but we weren't nearly on the ball as much as we should have been and gave away a free kick which they capitalised on. Altrincham really seem to thrive on dead ball set pieces and they took their chance when it came. We could have got back into the game late on had Nick Wright taken his chance, but we did start to look desparate rather than composed. We now know how Ebbsfleet felt last weekend when they did everything but score and lost.
"So, of course I'm disappointed in the final result, but we have to move on and look to Saturday. There were lots of positives to take from the game tonight despite the scoreline and we won't be down about it as we have two tough away games coming up."
