FOOTBALL: Confident Elkins is eyeing double joy
DIidcot Town manager Gary Elkins hopes to do the double tonight when his side travel to Clevedon in Division 1 South & West.
On Friday, they beat the Somerset side 3-1 in the FA Cup second qualifying round to set up a tasty home draw with Blue Square Bet South Maidenhead United.
And tonight they take on the same opponents.
Elkins said: “It’s a bit of an anti-climax to play them so soon again.
“But I think we can be confident, having beaten them on Friday.
“We have scored six goals in our last two games, but we created so many chances.
“I am looking for us to play attacking football and go and win the game.
“We are unbeaten in our last five games, so it would be nice to make it six.”
Elkins said the Maidenhead game represented a very difficult challenge. He added: “My feelings are mixed, really. They are going well in their league, but they are relatively close and are likely to bring a few fans with them.”
Didcot will be without Gareth Thomas (unavailable) for the trip to Clevedon.
Didcot Tn: from Belloli, Heapy, Stanley, Elkins, Peirson, Henderson, Osborne-Ricketts, L Williams, Clark, Bowles, M Williams, Tappin, Haysham, Thomas.
