The Blues travel to Westwood Road full of confidence after an outstanding winning performance in the FA Trophy over Alvechurch on Tuesday night at the Arden Garages Stadium.
Ahead of the game Town boss Thomas Baillie said "We are carrying a few knocks after Tuesday's game and a couple will need late fitness tests. We go into the St.Ives game knowing that it will be a strong contest, I know their management team and am sure they will be up for a battle and we've got to be ready to match them in that department. It will be a physical match on a difficult playing surface but we are ready for the challenge".
Town travel East occupying 11th spot in the league and looking to extend their unbeaten run to 10 games. In contrast the Saints who sit in 17th spot are winless in their last 7 league games having lost the last 4 but most by narrow margins so there will be no room for any complacency from the Blues.
In the two previous meetings at St.Ives, Stratford have the upper hand winning 6-2 last season and drawing the previous year, however Thomas and his coaching staff will ensure the lads are fully focused on the task at hand and are ready to play with the same levels of intensity and quality as in recent weeks
