Barking will play strongest side for Trophy clash with Brentwood
PUBLISHED: 14:00 18 September 2018
Barking manager Justin Gardner says he will be playing his strongest side available for their first round Velocity Trophy clash with league rivals Brentwood Town.
The blues welcome Craig Shipmen’s side to Mayesbrook Park this evening as they look to build on their recent run of form and progress into the second round of the cup competition.
The boss says he will not be resting players like previous seasons in the Trophy competition.
“What I have done in previous seasons is I have rested players in the cup but I’m not going to do that this season,” the 38-year-old said.
“Of course that may depend on where we are in the league but as of right now we’re going with our strongest team in every game to try winning every game.”
The former Aveley boss says they’ll know what to expect from their opponents after only playing them a few weeks back where they lost 1-0 at the Brentwood Arena.
“We played Brentwood a few weeks ago so we know what to expect from them as a team.
“We’re at home so it always good to have that advantage and we will not be resting on our laurels after a few wins under our belts.”
