Gainsborough captain, Dom Roma, says that the Blues are ‘raring to go’ as they head into Saturday’s game with Leamington.

Trinity have not had a competitive fixture so far this month, with Saturday being three weeks since they last turned out in a four one defeat at Chorley.

Skipper Roma, is eagerly awaiting the game.

He said: “As much as it is nice to recharge the batteries it is frustrating waking up on a Saturday morning and being told that you cannot play because of the weather.”

“You mentally prepare yourself all week and to find out that the game is off makes it seem wasted.”

It was not a huge surprise that the game away at Bradford Park Avenue was called off, as they had not played since 11th January, largely due to their pitch being frozen for most of that time.

The Blues had prepared for this and instead had an 11 versus 11 match at the Martin and Co Arena.

Speaking about the training game, Roma said: “It was fun and blew away a few of the cobwebs.”

“It’s not the same as a league match even though it cleared any rustiness that the lads had gathered.”

“The good news since we last played is that we have only dropped a place.”

“The odd team has picked up a point but no one has got any nearer to us.”

In the afternoon, manager Steve Housham went with some of his players, including Roma, to Harrogate to take a look at Trinity’s next opponents.

The game finished one a piece, as the Brakes came back from a goal down to snatch a point.

Roma expects a change in approach in Warwickshire.

He said: “We expect a different game when we go to theirs this week as they won’t try to shut up shop at home and will try and go after the game more.”

“As long as we go there and play our normal game, I expect us to get a result.”
