Matt Liddiard hopes Swindon Supermarine can hit the ground running in the FA Trophy on Saturday and grab a repeat performance against Dorchester Town.
Supermarine beat Dorchester 2-0 back in October with Liddiard scoring a late winner and the Marine skipper is hoping for more of the same on Saturday.
After another break in competitive football due to the coronavirus pandemic and second national lockdown, Liddiard admitted that Saturday’s game has the feel of the first game of the season.
And settling into the game early could be key according to Liddiard, who said: “It will be nice to play a competitive fixture.
“I know we played them recently and won 2-0 but every game is completely different.
“With the five-week break we have had, it is a bit like the first game of the season.
“It’s kind of who gets their foot on the ball first and gets playing who will win the game.
“We have to get back and hit the ground running.
“Nothing beats a good cup run and we want to go as far as possible in the competition.”
Saturday’s match kicks off at 3pm at the Webb’s Wood Stadium and will likely be Marine’s last competitive fixture until at least December 16th.
Until then, all football in step three and four is to be suspended until the next government review on the current coronavirus tier system.
