Blues will have to do it all again at Bloods on Tuesday night after Saturday’s game finished goalless
Barking joint-manager Glen Golby was disappointed with his team’s inability to carve out opportunities in their FA Cup preliminary round draw at home to Saffron Walden Town.
Against their Thurlow Nunn Premier opponents, the Blues could not find the net in a goalless draw at Mayesbrook Park.
The two sides will do it all again on Tuesday night at the Bloods’ Catons Lane ground.
However, Barking hard more than enough possession to get the job done on Saturday, leaving Golby a little frustrated with how his side fared in the final third.
“We had a lot of the ball, but we didn’t create enough chances with what we had,” said Golby.
“The positive we can take from it is that we are still in with a chance of progressing to the next round.
“I was also pleased with the wingers and the full-backs for the positionsthey got into to cross, though the final ball wasn’t great.”
Despite the draw, Golby, who plays as a defender, was pleased with the clean sheet against Town.
The shutout was the Barking’s first of the season, and their joint-boss hopes it is the first of many this term.
“In recent games, we’ve been letting in too many goals, but we’ve worked hard to rectify that in training,” he added.
“Hopefully we can’t implement that going forward as we know we can’t keep giving away soft goals.”
