St Albans City have to take their chances if they are going to return from Billericay Town with anything.
Saints make the trip to Essex on the back of three games without a win and they will come up against a Blues side reeling from their first loss of the season against Chippenham Town on Saturday.
But St Albans showed enough against Eastbourne to show they are working hard at turning their fortunes and had they taken some of their opportunities against The Sports, they may have gained more than a draw.
Manager Ian Allinson said: “It’s going to be a tough game we know that as they’ve got some fantastic players.
“And it’s not just them. They could have put a squad out today and they wouldn’t be too far away from changing every player for Monday.
“We have to take that into consideration.
“We know what to expect and we’ve got to go there and make sure we are difficult to play against.

“And if we take our chances we might cause an upset but if we don’t we could leave ourselves open to the counter attack or leave yourself open to playing second fiddle.
“Certainly if we give Billericay chances, they’ll punish us.”
