Bards boss ready to build on positives
STAYING positive is key for Stratford Town manager Gavin Hurren as he looks to prepare his side for the visit of Southern League Premier Central front-runners Mickleover on Saturday.
The Bards will go into the game smarting from back-to-back defeats including their exit from the FA Trophy last weekend following a penalty shootout at Nantwich Town. Third-placed Hitchin Town then edged a 1-0 win on Tuesday.
Hurren said: “It’s both frustrating and disappointing. As performances go, I thought we played really well against Nantwich but we weren’t clinical enough in front of goal and if you don’t take those chances and it goes to a penalty shootout then it becomes a lottery.
