Wroxham boss Pawel Guziejko believes his side's mental toughness is stronger now than it was at the start of the season.

The Yachtsmen endured a tough 120 minutes against Thetford in the Senior Cup on Tuesday, with Joe Marsden converting the crucial goal with seven minutes of extra-time remaining to send Wroxham through after they were twice pegged back.

Guziejko believes this shows a change in the mindset of his players and a stronger togetherness among the team.

'I think the players are tougher mentally now than they were before. We do a lot of mental preparation before every game, where we look at each player's personality individually, and that helps us to become a stronger team and have more unity.'

Lowly Brentwood are Saturday's visitors to Trafford Park, with Wroxham looking to extend their run of three games unbeaten with a win against the team currently sitting 22nd in Ryman First Division North.

'We are not underestimating them; to us it doesn't matter if they are above or below us,' said Guziejko. 'We are at home, I have a good team and we are determined to get three more points.'

The Yachtsmen will be without young goalkeeper Luis Tibbles, who is expected to be out for up to three weeks after injuring himself against Thetford.

'It is a shame that Luis is injured,' Guziejko added. 'He is a great team player and a fantastic person to work with, but once he has had his rehabilitation he should be back within two-three weeks.

'Aaron Cranfield will be our number one for the time being, he has been in good form for the reserves recently and I'm sure he can step up and do the business for us.'
