WHO ARE THE SHOTS PLAYING
The Shots penultimate away day comes in London, as the Shots travel to Wealdstone to take on the Stones in an evening clash on Tuesday night. The game is Tommy Widdrington’s fourth in the Shots dugout, with the gaffer still yet to lose during his time at the Shots, recording two draws and a win in three games.
TOMMY WIDDRINGTON PRE-MATCH:
Ahead of the clash, Tommy Widdrington remained adamant on the importance of the tie, saying:
“It’s the next game so it’s the biggest game as far as I’m concerned – we won’t look beyond it. We haven’t looked too much at what’s gone on behind us, but, we know we’re in a better place today than we were on Friday and hopefully we’ll be at a better place on Wednesday after Tuesday’s game. That’s the aim.”
Ollie Pendlebury and Tyler Frost have been missing from the last few squads and Widdrington gave an update on them both:
“The pair of them have been on the grass this morning so they may well be considered to be involved in some way or another at Wealdstone. Or if not Wealdstone we hope they should be on the bus up to York.”
After coming back from 3-1 down at half-time away to Eastleigh on Easter Monday and scoring a late winner against Scunthorpe on Saturday, Widdrington has been pleased with the response to disappointment from his players:
“That’s two games in a row we’ve managed to come back when we’ve had a disappointment – however big that disappointment is, it’s got to be brushed aside as quickly as it’s come and we’ve got to get back to thinking about what we do well.”
