Video reaction: Russell Eldridge
Russell Eldridge is hoping Little Common draw ‘one of the big boys’ in the last 16 of the Parafix Sussex Senior Challenge Cup.
Common will join the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion reserves, Crawley Town and Eastbourne Borough in the third round draw after their 2-0 victory at home to Bexhill United last night (Tuesday).
“A plum tie would be nice,” said Common player-manager Eldridge. “We would like one of the bigger boys, especially here.
“On the whole I would say we deserved it (the win against Bexhill). I don’t think Matt (Cruttwell, Common’s goalkeeper) had too many saves to make. Once we settled ourselves down and got our passes in I think we were the better team and we controlled it.
“We just lacked that little bit of quality, but I think it was difficult conditions out there for both teams. I think we probably adapted a little bit better and tried to play the football, and I think we got our rewards.”
