The momentum is with Lowestoft now - Godbold

Michael Bailey Midfield maestro Jamie Godbold believes the momentum is with Lowestoft Town ahead of Saturday's vital FA Vase semi-final second leg at Crown Meadow.

Midfield maestro Jamie Godbold believes the momentum is with Lowestoft Town ahead of Saturday's vital FA Vase semi-final second leg at Crown Meadow.

Whitley Bay were the victors in the first leg at Hillheads on Saturday, earning a 2-1 lead, but it was Godbold who struck for 10-man Town late on in the north east to breathe some extra life into their Vase challenge - and that could prove to be very important according to the Blues stalwart. "They actually brought their pitch in to suit them and maybe looked at some of our weaknesses, but they won't fancy coming to us on at the weekend, particularly with our pitch, with maybe the result - getting that goal, the momentum is with us now - particularly with our fans who again have been fantastic," said Godbold. "There will be a massive turnout and we'll have massive support on Saturday."

Now is the time to believe, something that Godbold feels is a strongpoint he shares with his current team-mates.

"The good thing about our squad at the moment is that we never stop believing," added Godbold. "Throughout every single player, this confidence and belief that the management team have put into us, and that we've got ourselves, is phenomenal.

"We were really disappointed going in at half-time level up there. I thought we were by far the better team, but we knew they couldn't probably play as badly as what they done

"But when we went 2-0 down it was important that we didn't conceded a third and that we stayed together and stayed strong, and see if we could nick one on the break, and that's what we did. "When we started looking round and their players started dropping to the floor two, three at a time, again that's a massive lift for us because myself and the lads, we were ready to go and could've played another half-hour.We noticed and it was evident that they were floundering, but we've got to give them credit. We can't get complacent, it's not going to be an easy game on Saturday, far from it. But if we play like we did there then we'll hopefully come away with the win."
