‘It’ll be a tough game’ – Hutch


Speaking to Tom Barnardo ahead of the top ten Blue Square South clash at Kingfield tomorrow, Tom confirmed that Braintree – who are hovering just outside the play-offs at the moment, just two points behind the Cards – will be no pushovers come the referee’s whistle at 3pm.

‘We know what to expect to be honest... the lads know that it won’t be an easy game at all. They’re a hard working team who like to play direct football and they’re very strong at the back. We’ll have to be at our best.’

The towering centre back, who has been leading a side in recent weeks, was clearly delighted with the side’s work ethic and resolve at The Crabble – Dover – on Tuesday night.

‘It was a hard-working performance from the team. Dover are a good side who like to pass the ball and, at times, we had to let them have it. Our midfield kept them on their toes, though, and we then worked hard when they came near our goal.’

‘Lots of teams we’ve played this year, especially here [at Kingfield], have just put 10 men behind the ball. Dover tried to take the game to us, but we managed to catch them on the break a couple of times. Overall, it was a good team performance.’

Hutchinson also revealed his glee at the upcoming FA Cup 1st Round tie at League 1 Swindon Town – arch rivals of Oxford United, the team for which his twin brother, Eddie, played well over 50 times in a three-year spell.

‘I think it’s a really good draw. Obviously we’re going to be massive underdogs but we go there under no pressure at all. They’re expected to win comfortably. Every year we see cup banana-skins, though, and you never know, this could be our year.’

‘It’ll be a great day out for the fans who I hope will travel in their numbers and make themselves heard... Hopefully, it’ll also be a nice pitch and a great stadium to play football in.’

Hutchinson was speaking to the Woking FC programme and www.wokingfc.co.uk and, for a full interview – including an open and honest account of the team’s and the managers’ failings last year – look out for an upcoming matchday programme.

* Tickets for next week’s FA Cup tie at Swindon are available on the gate and are priced at £12 for Adults, £8 Concessions and £4 Under 16s. See the preview in tomorrow’s programme for full travel details.
