The Gingerbreads host Carlton Town at The Meres today.
Due to the circumstances of player availability and playing 2nd in the league, Louis Bland took plenty of positives from the defeat at Hebburn on Saturday "I thought we worked really hard, we battled all over the pitch. If it wasn't for one moment of excellence, we could have come back with a point
The player's had to take in a lot of information from us in the week and even during the match. I am really pleased with how they took this on"
Today's opponents did not play on Saturday due a waterlogged pitch. Last time out they lost 3-0 at home to Newton Aycliffe, but before then beat both Sheffield FC and Cleethorpes Town. They sit outside the playoff zone on goal difference.
"Christmas football is great but it has given us no time to get together and go through Saturday and what we want to do against Carlton.
At Hebburn, the Supporters were first class. That support does make a difference"
Louis expects to announce some changes to the squad and will announce them on social media at the right time.
The Gingerbread will be open from 12pm and is showing Newcastle Utd v Forest at 12.30pm and then other Premier League matches across the afternoon.
Food will be served from the hatch in The Gingerbread due to the ongoing electrical issues in The Gingerbread Hut.
