The Cups Run Over

Right, let’s get back to business. Now all that cup stuff has been dealt with, we can focus on the serious challenge of climbing the table again. Not that our league campaign won’t be influenced by the last couple of weeks. Indeed, they marked a crucial opportunity for Dean Keates to take stock. Following on from the excellent performance against Bromley, our efforts against Rochdale … Continue reading The Cups Run Over

5 Questions Before Woking v Wrexham AFC

Can we play three at the back without Pearson? With Shaun Pearson suspended, will Brian Flynn persist with three at the back? You suspect he will, but losing the skipper tears a big hole in the heart of our defence. But who replaces the big man? Michael Chambers is the obvious call, although Doug Tharme might feel it’s about time he got his opportunity. Tharme … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Woking v Wrexham AFC

5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC – Stockport County

Outcomes like that need to spark a reaction though, and Bryan Hughes is confident his players will deliver in the hot atmosphere … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC – Stockport County

It also reflects well on Bryan Hughes if he is to be the man to get the record over the line. Keates constructed a formidable defensive unit, which set a club record for most league clean sheets last season. Today we can match … Continue reading Bryan Hughes Builds on Dean Keates’ Foundations

Defending is Dead: Long Live Defending.

Some things never change. Last season our defence was superb, setting a club record for most league clean sheets in a season, and the statistics tell us that this season we could be even better when it comes to shutting out our opponents. Incredibly, we kept seven clean sheets in our first ten matches of the season. That’s the second best tally in our history, … Continue reading Defending is Dead: Long Live Defending.
