Manager's Programme Notes

Before giving you my thoughts on tonight's tie, I would like to dwell for a few moments on last Sunday's match against Celtic, which I thought was a very entertaining one.

Whilst no manager likes losing, the result for me was the only disappointing aspect of the day because I felt that for the vast majority of the game we competed very well against the current champions

Now hopefully, we can build on the teamwork, because we will need to be equally as focused this evening, as we were on Sunday, if we are to be in the hat for the third round draw.

Every manager tries to impress the importance of a good cup run on his players, but there are always going to shocks and surprises in one-off games like this, but the risks of this happening can be minimised if the players show the desire and attitude.

I have a lot of admiration for John Connolly both as a person and for what he has achieved as a manager with Queens.

They play some excellent football, which will make this a tricky tie for us.

Because we are at home, the onus will be on us to take the tie to them, but if we keep the tempo up and play as we did on Sunday, then we are more than capable of getting through for what will hopefully be the start of a lengthy run in this competition.
