Wroxham ready for return of former boss

Wroxham face David Batch's AFC Sudbury on Tuesday night, with the former Yachtsmen boss making his first return to Trafford Park since his departure over the summer.

The return of Batch adds spice to what is already a crucial game for Wroxham, who are without a league win in four games, but manager Pawel Guziejko is treating the game the same as any other.

'Personally, I'm not looking at the game any differently and I don't think we should,' he said. 'We will view it as another competitive match and we will look to be successful over the course of the 90 minutes.'

'Obviously for some there is going to be a bit of added spice with the return of David but as a coach and as players we must concentrate what we have to do with our own individual tasks.'

Batch's Sudbury are currently 10th in the Ryman North Division One table, boasting a side that features a few familiar faces to the Yachtsmen, but Guziejko believes there is no hard feelings between the two teams.

'Players and managers come and go. That is the nature of football. They have made their decisions and we respect them for that as it was their own choice. I wish them all the best, and I think David has done a good job so far at Sudbury, but I am focussed on my players and how we can work together to improve.'

Guziejko also stated that he will not be ringing the changes after the side's disappointing 4-0 defeat at Waltham Abbey at the weekend, in what he admitted was a poor performance by his players.

'That was probably the poorest performance I have seen since I took over, but we move on. I don't think you can judge your team after one performance as when you do that, the trust is gone.'

'The squad for Sudbury will not be much different to the one that played on Saturday and now we must move forward, taking what happened against Waltham Abbey on board and making sure it doesn't happen again.'
