The experience of Ben Herd and David Noble could be vital ahead of St Albans City’s FA Cup clash with Carlisle United says manager Ian Allinson.
The pair both have plenty of experience of league football and the FA Cup.
And with nerves and excitement potentially playing a part for St Albans, having those two in the dressing room will be a boost.
Allinson said: “It’s massive in terms of their experience. They’ve both played over 300 league games and both have given us something different this year.
“They’re going to be people who can calm us down in terms of our younger players. They might get excited as the game approaches or during the game. On Monday [against London Colney] a few of the younger players got excited and tried too hard to impress.
“We’ve got to make sure we don’t try too hard. We’ve got to relax our bodies, keep the ball and hopefully do things going forward.”
