Trainer backs Bucks to shear Lambs

AFC Telford United midfielder Phil Trainer is "pretty confident" his team can pick up all three points against Tamworth in Tuesday evening's rescheduled clash.

Telford will be aiming to return to winning ways when the 16th-placed Lambs make the trip to New Bucks Head.

Bucks boss Andy Sinton will expect a positive response from his players following a 3-2 defeat to Ebbsfleet United on Saturday which stretched their winless run to three games.

Trainer, however, believes victory second time around over Marcus Law's side is definitely doable after their original match-up was abandoned after 43 minutes due to a waterlogged pitch.

He told the Shropshire Star: "We are pretty confident we can get the job done. We always fancy ourselves at home, especially when we have a big crowd behind us.

"Obviously, it can go for you or against you but the fans really are our 12th man, especially when the place is full, and we can use that to push us forward.

"The rain was a leveller for Tamworth the last time and I think we would have beaten them on a dry surface over 90 minutes.

"Man for man, I fancy our squad and if we can pick up where we left off in the first game.

"We can go out there and show people we deserve to stay in this division."

Trainer added: "The gaffer always talks about playing positive football and making sure we go into matches on the front foot.

"We want to get the ball forward and make sure that we hurt Tamworth and create chances.

"If we can get some forward momentum then that will get the crowd behind us and that can be a massive factor we can use to our advantage."
