Half expecting the team to get there but be locked out the ground, that or 15 mins into the game the floodlights fail. I just want it to be played, so please let there be no problems.

I think it’ll be similar to the Kings Lynn game, they’ll set up to frustrate and if we can’t get much joy we’ll switch formation to get Roberts higher and wider.

I noticed they had one of their players sent off against Woking at the weekend, hopefully he’s their star-man!

Definite must win game as we are then going into a spell of some tricky fixtures, followed by another spell of tough games. My worry is that some of our players will be pretty rusty, having not played for a couple of weeks, but on the plus side they should be fresh.

If Notts pile the pressure on Wealdstone, a good result should come, and we might enjoy a few goals.

The main thing is to leave with the win.

However, it would be great for confidence if Notts won 4 or 5-0 and put together a solid performance. The postponements surely make some of our players more eager to do well. The process has to be on focus though, no game is won before kick off and Wealdstone can be extremely unpredictable at times. If we can work the ball and, control the game, chances shouldn't be few or far between.

3-1 is my score prediction.

Cal Roberts, Kyle Wootton and Matt Palmer to score.

Pfft, not great but not a disaster either.

Second half sounded better, very disappointing to not score though. The non-event first half was probably just as if not more costly. Very similar to Kings Lynn expect this time Wealdstone shut us out. There’s just something sometimes about these away games to the teams nearer the bottom that we really struggle with, just can’t seem to get going quickly enough in particular.  

I’d have taken 4 points from these two away games, just means there’s more pressure on the Bromley game now, but weirdly that probably suits us.

Wealdstone must be happy with the draw, it's s good result for them and credit is due for making the most of the game. I feel a bit disappointed, but it's nothing major. I just hoped we'd make it a lot more harder for them.
