Jimmy Fry spoke to Half Time Oranges ahead of tonights game against Coalville

By Andy Chilton

“It’s always good to have games in hand but it will mean nothing if we can’t come away with all three points this evening.”


Stratford Look to Steal a March

Stratford’s Jimmy Fry hopes the team can capitalise on their game in hand as they welcome Coalville to the Arden Garages stadium tonight.

Town were the only team not to play at the weekend and results went in their favour, it’s now up to them to take advantage.

“It was nice to have a Saturday off.” Jimmy said. “It couldn’t have gone better for us, we didn’t play and yet we stayed third.

“It’s always good to have games in hand, but it will mean nothing if we can’t come away with all three points this evening.

Town are yet to play Coalville this season, but will now meet them twice in a matter of weeks and Jimmy can’t wait to face the team from Leicestershire.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” said Jimmy. “This game has been rearranged two or three times, so it will be good to finally play them.

“Normally at this stage of the season, you’d have a rough idea of what to expect but tonight is a little different.

“However, Coalville are in and around the play offs, so it will be a competitive game, that’s for sure.”

“I will be amazed if it’s not a similar test to any other game this season. I don’t think there will be any shocks or surprises.

“It’s going to be a question of whether we can adapt accordingly on the night.”

Stratford don’t go into the game completely blind, assistant manager Steve Walker was in the Coalville dugout not so long ago.

“Steve has a little inside knowledge.” Jimmy said. “He knows the management and the set up well.

“We didn’t have a game on Saturday, so he took the opportunity to go and watch them play. Make no mistake, we will be ready.”
