BORO get back into League action on Saturday as we make the long trip north to Blyth Spartans.
Having crashed out of the Emirates FA Cup with defeat at Nantwich Town last weekend, manager, Tommy Wright, is keen to see his side respond in the right way.
“I am looking for a reaction,” he said. “I have said to the lads all week that whilst they can’t guarantee me results, what I should expect from them without question is no less than 100% effort and commitment.
“We’ve dissected what happened last weekend and now we have to move on from it and get back on track.
“It will be a tough challenge at Blyth. They are a good side who like to get the ball down and play. They have plenty of attacking intent and we’ll have to be on our game.
“I’d back us against anyone in this League on our day. The lads are in good spirits considering last weekend’s result and they are ready to get back out there and start putting things right.”
Blyth Spartans gained promotion at the end of last season and currently sit fifth in the table with three wins from their six home League games so far.
It’s Non League Day this weekend. The initiative was launched in 2010 as an event to give non-League clubs in the English National League System a chance to promote themselves during an international break when Premier League and EFL Championship clubs have the weekend off and England are not playing on the Saturday.
This year’s event also enjoys the added bonus of not coinciding with international matches for any of the home nations, which frees up more clubs and fans in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to also take part if they wish.
As in previous seasons, thousands of pounds are expected to be raised by fund-raising fans for good causes led by NLD's official charity, Prostate Cancer UK.
