Tonbridge boss Steve McKimm is determined that history won’t repeat itself when they host Grays in the FA Trophy second qualifying round on Saturday.
Angels were beaten 2-1 in the Ryman League Premier Division by Grays last month and McKimm believes his players have learnt their lessons.
He said: “We’ve watched the DVD from that game a few times. We’ve all seen the mistakes we made and now we’ve got to ensure that we iron those errors out.
“We all know it’s going to be tough but this is cup football and it’s all-or-nothing on the day.
“We’ll certainly be up for it and not only because we want a decent run. There is a nice bit of cash on offer (the winners get £3,250) and that would come in handy for the club.”
McKimm’s side, who lost 1-0 in the league at home to Billericay last Saturday, won 3-2 at Sittingbourne in the Kent Senior Cup second round on Tuesday night, coming from 2-0 down thanks to Marvin Williams, Dee Okojie and Jack Parter.
Angels continue their week of cup action when they visit Ramsgate on Tuesday in the second round of the League Cup.
