Changes are afoot for Terras' cup replay

RETURN: Craig Duff

RETURN: Craig Duff

First published in Football by

BRENDON King is considering making changes ahead of tonight’s FA Cup replay against Totton & Eling at the Bob Lucas Stadium (7.45pm).

Kyle Critchell and Craig Duff are both expected to return to the Terras’ starting XI and there could also be a switch in formation.

The Sydenhams Wessex League Premier Division outfit held Weymouth to a 2-2 draw at Little Testwood Farm on Saturday and King is anticipating another tough encounter this evening as both sides look to progress through to a second qualifying round tie at Blue Square Bet South side Basingstoke Town.

The Terras’ boss told Echosport: “I am not even thinking about the draw because we have got tonight to prepare for first.

“We did everything right in terms of our preparations for last Saturday. We had them scouted and our attitude was right from the start but they just made it really difficult for us and I have no doubts that they will look to do the same again.

“They will probably get men behind the ball and look to break on us and create chances from set pieces so we will need to be compact and disciplined throughout.

“The other thing we need to start doing is getting more men in the box and we are considering a change in shape in order to help us do exactly that.

“At their place we found it difficult to break them down on a really tight pitch.

“If they defend the same way then it is going to be tough but hopefully on a much bigger playing surface we will be able to move them about more and create more chances.”

On the subject of personnel, King added: “We have a few knocks that we are continuing to monitor and there could well be a few changes.

“Craig will come back into the squad after missing the first game due to family commitments and Kyle is pretty much certain to start too.”

The Terras are also at home on Saturday when Hemel Hempstead Town will be the visitors in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division (3pm).
