Team News

Adam Oldham picked up a knee injury last Sunday and is set to be out for a number of weeks.

New signing Alex Popescu could be set to make his competitive debut.

Jordan Wildey could name a similar squad that picked up the points at Eagle Team, with only Oldham unavailable for selection and a number of players all still awaiting international clearance.

Though Wildey will be looking for an improved first half this time as he was left frustrated with his side’s performance.

Wildey said: “In my opinion, there was a lack of intention in our general play and too many basic errors in the opening half. We must avoid thinking that was acceptable just because of the result. We play like that again, it could quite easily be a reverse result so we need to get in and make sure we are ready for our first home game against Chester.”

The Falcons will have been disappointed not to pick up any points in the opening game as they took the lead on a number of occasions but fell to a defeat with the last kick of the game.

But Head Coach Pablo Asensio was full of optimism and praise for his team, especially his goalkeeper who played out an impressive performance.

Asensio said: “My keeper is a godsend, I was looking for a keeper for a long time and couldn’t find one, but he found us. He’s the best player on the team in terms of futsal. I think he understands the game better than anyone, and I made him my captain. The target of the team is to get to his level and then we’ll lift and keep going.”
