Liam - Tuesday's 2-2 draw at home to Rocester brought to an end United's 100% record in the league. How did the players and the coaching staff feel after the final whistle?

Luke - The whole squad were disappointed not to take all 3 points, but all runs come to an end at some point. All credit has to go to Rocester as they came with a good game plan and executed it. They are a good side and will beat a lot of teams this season

Liam - How can you bounce back against Tipton?

Luke - We will bounce back in the only way we know how, and that's by giving 100% on the pitch as always. Yes, we have 1 or 2 players missing, but that's part of football, and every club is in the same situation. We have a strong squad so those that come into the side are more than ready to take their chance

Liam- Long range passing seemed to be an issue on Tuesday night. Is this something you have been practicing in training?

Luke - Our passing on Tuesday night wasn't up to our usual standard, and that is one of many things we have worked on in training. Hopefully it will pay off this weekend

Liam - Is the FA Vase a competition you are taking seriously, or is the league the sole focus?

Luke - The league is obviously our main focus, but every game we play, we play to win. The FA Vase is a massive competition for all lower league clubs, and a trip to Wembley at the end of the season is a huge incentive for everyone involved. So we are going to give it our all, as will everyone else in the competition

Liam - Tipton play at a similar level to Coventry United, and you have the home advantage. Does this make you favourites for this match?

Luke - Tipton are a very good side and are unbeaten in their league, so it's going to be a very tough game

Liam - A big crowd is expected at the Butts Park Arena, how important will the Red and Green army be during this FA Vase campaign

Luke - The supporters are brilliant, and the atmosphere they have been building at the Butts Park Arena is amazing. It's brilliant to know they are 100% behind us all the time. They're all knowledgeable and when things do go our way, they know they have to get behind us even more to help raise the players and get them back on the right track
