Eyüphan Toga fires in our fourth goal in our last game against Barca.

Brook Street head for the borders and a league clash with -*FC BARCELONA*- tomorrow in optimistic mood following their recent upturn in form.

The New Home Park side will be looking for their fourth consecutive league victory, and given the side’s record against Barca, their optimism is perhaps well-founded. In the six previous meetings between the sides, Brook Street have won four and drawn one.

“We certainly appear to have the upper hand in the fixture”, admitted Marcus this morning, “but there’s no way we will be showing any complacency”.

He added, “They’re a good side and it will be a tough game for us, but in our eyes this is very much a winnable match. They’re going through a bit of a dip at the moment having lost their last two matches, and scoring appears to be a bit of a problem for them this season.”

In contrast, scoring has been anything but a problem for the New Home Park side of late, having scored twelve times and conceded only four in the current unbeaten run.

Marcus commented, “We’ve certainly found our shooting boots lately and I’m looking for that to continue tomorrow. Margins are tight in this division and the difference between second top and second bottom is only four points. We’ve got to take our chances when they arise and keep things tight at the back”.

Brook Street will be at full strength for the game, but Barca report that Thomas Chassain will miss out and Maciej Radziszewski is carrying a knock.

The match kicks off at 1630 BST tomorrow afternoon.
