Nick Davis Talks Performance, New Velocity Trophy Rules + More Following a Draw Away to Ashford

04/09/2019

Nick Davis was pleased with his side’s performance away to Ashford in the first matchday of the Velocity Trophy on Tuesday evening. 

“We made a couple of changes to the side [against Ashford] and sometimes that can affect the performance, but I think our shape was spot on today.” Nick said. 

“We had a light session the night before the game and we worked on our shape - that paid dividends today I felt.”

"There weren’t many chances within the game but we were a threat on the break away from home on a difficult surface, so I’m really pleased overall.”

In a new spin on the Velocity Trophy, any draws in 90 minutes will now go to a penalty shootout for the chance of an added bonus point.

“It went to a penalty shootout which is a little bit different from what we are used to but we won and got the bonus point so I’m happy about that.”

“It’s a good bit of practice actually because it might happen in the FA Cup or another cup competition.”

“A couple of niggles on the night was the only shadow casted on to the performance, so a couple will need to be assessed ahead of the game Saturday.”
