Manager Simon Halsey says Herne Bay will not fear visit to Maidstone United
A vociferous crowd at Maidstone
will hold no fears for Herne Bay manager Simon Halsey when his side
visit the Gallagher Stadium on Saturday.
Sitting second in Ryman League,
Division 1 South – five points and six places above Bay – the
Stones are averaging gates of more than 1,600 this season.
A vocal home crowd watched them
sensationally knock Salisbury City out of the FA Trophy last
weekend but Halsey insists his players will not be over-awed by the
derby day atmosphere.
"We’ve got nothing to fear and
nothing to worry about," said Halsey (pictured).
"We’ll go there and play our
football and hopefully at ten to five, we’ll have got something out
of the game. We had a couple of games last year in front of big
crowds but we know Maidstone are a good side.
"It’s a massive test. They had a
great result on Saturday, Salisbury are five points clear in
Conference South so that shows what sort of team we’re coming up
"We’ll show them the utmost respect but we’re good on our day
and we’re going in the right direction."
