CHELMSFORD City captain, Chris Bush, could hardly contain his excitement ahead of the Clarets huge Buildbase FA Trophy third round replay with Tranmere Rovers at the Melbourne Stadium.
“You wouldn’t want to miss this one, Bush said. “Every club has its historic matches. The supporters always remember them and pass the stories to the next generation. This is one of those games.
“I think it will be a really good match. Certainly, if I wasn’t playing, I’d want to be in the ground watching and cheering the team on.
“We will go with the same game plan as Saturday. We hope that being the home side will give us that little extra edge that will see us over the line and into the next round.
Bush believed the Clarets showed what they are all about during the draw at Prenton Park, adding: “I think we showed at the weekend that we can defend and counterattack as a unit. We have also shown previously that we can attack on the front foot and control the game. We have the capabilities. Won’t take Tranmere for granted, but we know we can mix it up if we need to.
Nevertheless, the City skipper acknowledged the size of the task his side faced, saying: “Tranmere might have been surprised by us on Saturday, but they quickly adapted. They are a good side. They are where they are in the National League for a reason, we will have to be careful, perhaps cautious, but we also have to show no fear. We need to let Tranmere know that they are in for another game.”
