Wealdstone boss Bobby Wilkinson will be rallying round his side and making sure they bounce back as they return to league action against Eastbourne Borough.

The Stones welcome Boro to Grovesnor Vale this evening (7.45pm) and will be looking to put their FA Trophy woes behind them after crashing out to Brackley Town in the semi-final 3-0 on aggregate over the two legs.

Wilkinson’s men sit 13th in the National League South and are eleven points off the play-off places with two games in hand.

“You have to regroup, you do what you’ve got to do and let your emotions run wild and then sit back down.

“I’ve got to pick these boys back up, pick the management team up, as I’m leader, I’m the one whose got to lead by example.

“We’ll be back here fighting to get three points against Eastbourne.”

Wilkinson also revealed he will be rotating his squad with a busy run of fixtures coming up in the next few weeks.

“You have to rotate now because we’ve got so many games coming up, we’ve got four games in a week, so it’s so important now that every part of squad believes we can still make the play-offs.

“We’re so many games behind but we have to keep believing.”
