Mark Pritchett continued his fine form this season as his well taken double earned Tuffley Rovers a 2-2 draw at Windsor this weekend.
Pritchett moved onto 6 goals for the season with a drilled free kick and a long distance effort to see Rovers come from behind twice to earn a point in Berkshire.
“Overall I thought the performance was good,” Pritchett told us after the game. “It was a bit disappointing that we didn’t grab all three points but there were plenty of positives.
We changed the shape with about 25 minutes to go and got into some really good positions, but we just lacked that killer instinct in the final third.”
Pritchett has caught the eye this season with a number of eye catching performances, performances that have seen him make the Severn Sport Team of the Month for the last three months in a row and he admitted to us his form this season is simply down to playing games.
“This season I just feel a lot fitter, I’ve had a good run of games under my belt now which helps and of course it is always nice to score goals and help the young players develop,” said Pritchett.
Next up for Tuffley is a tough trip to Malvern Town in the Floodlit Cup and Pritchett knows that his young side will be in a tough ride on Tuesday night.
“Malvern will be a very tough game,” Pritchett said. “They’ve beaten a few Hellenic Premier sides already this season and are doing well in their league.
They’ve just had a new 3g laid down there so I’m expecting a very good footballing game from both sides, We are very much looking forward to visiting there and it should suit our ball playing players to the ground.
The Floodlit Cup is definitely a cup we are looking to win. The league is the bread and butter but if we could add a trophy to that would be brilliant,” Pritchett added.
Tuffley Rovers head to Malvern Town in the Floodlit Cup on Tuesday evening, before a trip to Hardwicke of the Gloucestershire County League in the GFA Challenge Trophy next weekend.
