The Dugout with Liam and Luke

Date: 14 September 2017 at 19:31 by Liam Cook

Before this weekend's titanic clash between old rivals Coventry United and Bromsgrove Sporting, Red and Greens Assistant Manager Luke Morton talks to Liam Cook in the 2nd edition of The Dugout

Liam - A difficult night on Tuesday ended in a 1-0 defeat. Was the result a surprise? Did you feel you deserved to win?
Luke - It was a tough night, but that's what we expect in this league. There's no easy games and Wulfrunians are an excellent side. We got exactly what we deserved out of the match. Wulfrunians fully deserved all 3 points.
Liam - Half time seemed to come at the wrong time for United. After the break, Wulfrunians seemed to better team. What changed?
Luke - Yes, we had a 5 minute spell right before half time where we put a bit of pressure on their goal, so maybe half time came at the wrong time for us. Obviously in the 2nd half the conditions got alot worse and Wulfrunians put alot of pressure on us
Liam - An early kick off against Bromsgrove with the game starting at noon this Saturday. What effect will this have on matchday preparations within the squad?
Luke - The early kick off time won't bother us one bit on Saturday, we will prepare in our normal way.
Liam - Bromsgrove have made a strong start to the new season after dominating MFL Division 1 last year. What are you expecting to see on the pitch from both sides?
Luke - Bromsgrove are a excellent side. To go undefeated in the league last season was a tremendous feat and they have continued that form into this campaign. We expect a very tough game and a very exciting game.
Liam - Usually the Red and Green Army are the more vocal of the 2 sets of supporters. This weekend that might not be the case as Bromsgrove's supporters are more than passionate. Will this have an effect on the players?
Luke - Our fans are brilliant and we wouldn't replace them with any others. Yes, Bromsgrove will have a large following, but you would expect that as they been around, in one form or other, for a very long time, while we're still building our fan base. Our players will thrive on the noise, and it will be a great atmosphere provided by both sets of fans
Liam - And finally, how important is a result on Saturday as the table starts to take shape?
Luke - Obviously we want to win on Saturday but win,lose or draw in won't define either teams season as there is along way to go.
