Swindon Supermarine boss Dave Webb is relishing tonight’s (Tuesday) Wiltshire Senior Cup clash at Salisbury, viewing it as a chance to make a swift return to winning ways.
Supermarine suffered a 2-0 defeat at Yate Town in the league on Saturday, whilst Salisbury also went down to a surprising 2-1 home defeat to Larkhall Athletic.
And despite not getting the result he wanted at the weekend, Webb believes there was reason to upbeat heading into a tough clash at the Ray Mac.
“It’s always disappointing to lose but you have to take the positives from it,” Webb said.
“People will look at the result and think it was a poor performance but it wasn’t.
“You’ve got to try and say to the players that we have to go again against Salisbury.
“We are looking forward to it, you get an opportunity to bounce back quickly at this standard of football.
“We have to put Saturday behind us and try and get a positive result. We want to try and stay in the Wilts Senior Cup.”
Saturday’s game could prove costly in more ways than one, with Webb set to be without two key players after they picked up knocks in South Gloucestershire.
“Ryan Campbell picked up an ankle injury,” Webb said.
“It’s going to be sore, we’ll have to see how he is but he is doubtful for Tuesday.
“Zak Westlake sustained a cut on his foot late in the game and I would think that he will be a doubt as well.
“We may have a couple of players missing so we have got to show what the squad is about.”
Salisbury reached the second round of the competition by thumping Wiltshire League side Bassett Bulldogs 13-0 whilst defending champions Supermarine received a walkover with Ludgershall Sports unable to raise a side.
