Oxford City manager Mike Ford wants his side to build on their 2-2 draw with Skrill North leaders Altrincham on Saturday, as they host Boston United tonight, writes MATTHEW BRUCE.
Ford said of his winless side: “We have to back up our positive result on Saturday because we can’t put in all that effort and work and commitment against Altrincham only to go and waste it all against Boston.
“The next couple of games offer us a chance to get some real momentum and hopefully get some points on the board.”
North Leigh are looking to recover from their FA Cup defeat to local rivals Didcot Town as they return to Calor League Division 1 South & West action at home to Godalming Town.
Boss Mark Gee said: “Godalming didn’t play this weekend, so they’ll be fresh, but we’ve got a couple of points to prove after what happened on Saturday.”
Didcot look to continue their recent upturn in form as they travel to Stratford Town.
