Once again, Alistair MacLaren has been in touch with Paul Curtis, to get his thoughts following Friday's draw at Stamford AFC.

What are your feelings about Friday?s result at Stamford?

If was probably a fair result when you look at the whole game. We battled well and showed desire, and were disappointed not to have won.

The referee seems to have given a number of Yellow Cards, and of course a Red card to Leon Gutzmore, what did you think of him?

I did not think that he was too bad in the game. Leon Gutzmore did show passion on the night but had to be sent off for putting his hand into the Stamford players face. The Stamford player should have also been sent off as he kicked out at Leon while he was on the ground, but the referee did not see that.

You did have quite a few injury worries ahead of the Stamford game, did it have any impact on the game?

No not really, the situation was not as bad as it seemed following the Stotfold game. Paul Lamb had to come off which did cause us to lose our shape.

Are there any injury worries ahead of Saturday?s game in the FA Cup?

Not really, apart from Paul Lamb there are no major injury worries, Matt Hayward, and one or two others will be having treatment on Tuesday night but should be alright for Saturday?s game.

It has been said on the message board that you might be signing a Simon Dunlop from Brackley, is that true?

No I have not spoken to anyone of that name, I don?t know him or what position he plays in.

Do you have any other potential signings lined up?

I am looking to make another signing but have not spoken to anyone in depth. Apart from the player?s position on the field, the type of player is also very important, position, and the budget.

It is not a good time to sign players on loan at this stage of the season, FA Cup and Trophy games being played often mean that clubs don?t want their players to become cup tied, so you could sign a player for a month, on loan, and he might only be involved in two matches, not good for the budget as the club would have to pay the wages.
