This week Anstey Nomads are back at home against Irchester United.
First Team Coach Chris Blount gives his thoughts on the upcoming fixture -
"Last week against Rushden & Higham United, I was very pleased with the performance, particularly second half. Rushden are a side who are well organised and their place in the league doesn't really reflect the type of team they are so for us to execute our game plan as well as we did was good. The ground there is full of history of the former Rushden & Diamonds FC which no longer exists and it was nice to see that still lives on in the club.
"This week presents an equally tough test against Irchester. When you look at their results so far this season, it's a mixed bag but you can see they always have a close scoreline with the teams higher than them in the table. They've had a good run in the FA Vase and we expect they'll now be fully focused on the league and looking to take points when they come this Saturday.
"We currently sit at the top of the league on goal difference and I've seen a few people talking about a top 3 3 teams breaking away from the rest of the group. In my opinion it's far too early to make any such statements. We're less than a third of the way into the season and in just a months time, the landscape could look very different. All we can do is keep looking at the next game and working as hard as we can."
