Jagger conceded his side were second best against Reckitts AFC last Saturday saying that his team had to take the result on the chin and move on following a 4-1 defeat.
Speaking ahead of the game, Jagger said;
“We will be going into this match with pretty much the same squad that faced Reckitts. We do however have a new signing Jez Hartley in the squad. He brings real quality top the team, he can play in the middle or the wing.”
“United are a good side with lots of quality in their team. They have not had a great start but I am fully expecting them to give us a tough game.”
“I want to see a reaction from my players this week after last week’s disappointment. We have had a some good training sessions in the build to the game and moral is good in the squad.”
“With regard to how the table is shaping up at this moment I am not worried about the league positions. It is still early days and there is a lot of football to play.”
Jagger says is more concerned that his side are facing another game without a full set of match officials. FA Regulations stipulate that ‘Step 7’ matches should have a referee and two assistants.
“It is very frustrating that we could be facing another week with no assistants running the touchline. When you play football at this standard you really do need the full complement of officials.”
Jagger was also given a boost with news that Jamie Midst and Leon Dawson could both returning to action quicker than first thought after picking up injuries.
