Cup action tonight!
It's back to the Tannery Ground this evening and we match up again against Bideford this time in the CSS League Challenge Cup. A Phil Ormrod hat-trick in the previous round helped Street to 5-2 win over Taunton Town.
Bideford will be desperate to to avenge two recent defeats against Street and have found the Cobblers attack difficult to contain in those games shipping 7 goals in the process. Two red cards haven't helped their cause either with the margins between the two sides a lot tighter then the results suggest.
It's set up for another exciting battle, a challenge Manager Rich Fey as always is looking forward to "Another cup game and it’s nice to be back at the Tannery. We have had two tough games against Bideford in the past week and I’m expecting another one again tonight. I think both teams are now fed up with each other but it’s a competition we want to do well in and I’m hoping we get the great support we have been receiving lately and shout us into the next round. I’m hoping to have one new signing on board and look to give lads a run out who haven’t played much lately"
Let's see if the Cobblers can finish the 'Bideford Trilogy' on a high. Bar/turnstiles open from 6:15, KO is 19:45. Support is much appreciated!
Up The Cobbs!
