Motormen and Seedgrowers drew 2-2 on Saturday, and boss says both sides will have learnt more about other

Joint-manager Ricky Eaton says Redbridge will use what they learnt from their initial FA Vase second qualifying round tie against Coggeshall Town in the replay on Tuesday – but knows the same goes for the opposition.

The Motormen first needed a Josh Hutchinson equaliser in the 81st minute to take Saturday’s tie to extra time, before Patrick Duggan scored two minutes from the end of the additional 30 minutes to make it 2-2 and earn the Oakside club a replay.

The sides will do it all again at the Seedgrowers’ West Street home on Tuesday, and Eaton hopes Redbridge can put what they learnt from Saturday to good use.

“We’ve seen a few things that we’ll be looking to exploit, but Coggeshall will no doubt have learned a bit more about us too,” he said.

“When you play against a team, you learn how they move and how certain players move.

“We’re both in good form and we’re both scoring lots, so it should be another entertaining game.”

Both teams may head into Tuesday’s game a little tired having played 120 minutes at the weekend.

But Eaton is confident Redbridge have enough in the tank to progress in the cup.

“We have a few more players available to us for Tuesday than we had Saturday, so that will help,” he added.

“We’re confident we have more than enough about us to go to Coggeshall and progress.”
