AFC Telford boss Andy Sinton has told his team they need to show more desire in tomorrow’s FA Cup fourth qualifying round replay at Nuneaton.
The Bucks chief saw his side snatch a 2-2 draw at home on Saturday thanks to Ryan Valentine’s stoppage-time goal.
But he admitted his team will need to play better if they are to make make it through to the first round, where a trip to Luton Town awaits.
“We had a disasterous start but we got ourselves back into the game and when you are looking to step on with energy and urgency and desire, I felt we were lacking in certain departments on Saturday,” he said.

“If you haven’t got desire, whatever you are doing in life you won’t achieve what your ability should allow you to achieve.
“We have got to find something. We have got to find that early-season zip. Two or three players are playing well below the radar.
“I can’t do anything about it due to finances and people being out injured but I said a few things in the dressing room.
“One or two of them need a wake-up call.”
Sinton was also frustrated after Jordan Rose was sent off in stoppage time having picked up a second booking.
Sinton added: “We have six red cards (this season) and we haven’t laid a glove on anybody. I am sick of it.”
