JOINT assistant manager Tony Round has called for a response from Feckenham after a bitterly disappointing performance in Saturday’s 4-0 home loss to NKF Burbage in the Smedley Crooke Memorial Charity Cup.
Just a fortnight earlier the Millers had won 4-3 at the now Midland League Division Two table-toppers in a league game but this time around there were no repeat heroics from the men in green as the Leicestershire side eased to victory.
The challenge now is for Feckenham to hit back against much-fancied visitors Montpellier in Saturday’s league match at the Entaco.
Round said: “It was a really poor performance from us, our worst of the campaign so far.
“We started slowly and never really got to grips with Burbage who were fully worth their victory.
“We knew how they’d set up and how they’d play but we just didn’t do the basics right to make a game of it.
“The players have set standards in previous games that we expect them to maintain but that wasn’t the case on Saturday. They’re fully aware of that and that we’ll be expecting a reaction this weekend when we entertain Montpellier.
“They’ve (Montpellier) adjusted well after promotion but had a shock result themselves at the weekend, going down at Hampton, so I’m sure they’ll be looking to bounce back too which should make for another entertaining fixture.”
