LYME Regis manager Mark Bailey is looking to attack Alphington Seconds a bit more as they head into their third game of the season against the Alphas.

Back in November, Lyme won 2-1 at home against the Alphas but more recently drew 1-1 with them with Cody Bowditch getting the goal for the Seasiders.

When asked what the side will take from their recent draw with the Alphas, Bailey said: “We will try and play a bit more on the front foot if anything, try and attack more.

“I would be surprised if we did not do well over there. We have played them a couple of times and they are a good side but on our day I think we should beat them really.”

Discussing the number of games that have been postponed for Lyme so far this season, Bailey said: “”It is a bizarre situation but a lot of clubs are in the same position, a lot are in worse.”

When asked if the team view the cup ties as a break from the league or whether they would rather just get on with the league, Bailey said: “It works both ways really, because we are sort of out of contention for the league it does give us something to play for the cups but equally we have got so many games to play it is almost a hindrance as well. It is somewhere in between I would say.”

Bailey was only appointed last week and due to the snow the game this weekend will be his first in charge.

Bailey said: “Having everything set up but then to not play was disappointing but we sort of expected it with the forecast.

“It has not been too different, I was taking training sometimes before and helping out with it so training has been the same.”

Lyme are waiting on a couple of players regarding availability on Saturday and Christ Herbst and Fred Parsons but Kieron Daniels is set to return from injury.
