I will leave no stone unturned to make sure we're prepared for Knaphill, says Jason Lillis
Friday 31st October 2014LORDSWOOD manager Jason Lillis says he’s excited about tomorrow’s FA Vase tie against Knaphill.
The Lords have home advantage over the Combined Counties League side Knaphill, who are struggling in the bottom four with four wins, three draws and eight defeats.
Lillis’ side reached the Third Round last season, going down to a 5-0 defeat away to Hanwell Town.
The Medway outfit reached the Fourth Round the year before, going down to a 3-1 away defeat to Spennymoor Town.
“The FA Vase always brings excitement to lower league teams and we are looking forward to our game on Saturday against Knaphill,” said Lillis.
“We never had a game on Saturday and that allowed me to refresh my players and get little niggles out of the way.
“We have had good training sessions this week, working on our strengths and weaknesses going into our game tomorrow.
“Knaphill are very organsied and pose certain threats which hopefully we can deal with.
“I want us to worry about our strengths and pose them problems. I have had a report back and will leave no stone unturned to make sure players are physically and mentally prepared for our Vase game.
“I have had good success in this competition and want the run to continue. I would like our local community to come and support us and hopefully have a big gate on Saturday.”
Meanwhile, Lillis has re-signed Mark Murison and has put in a seven-day approach for Matt McHugh.
