AFC Sudbury boss Nicky Smith is hoping his side have turned the corner after Tuesday night's 2-0 home victory over Arlesey Town.

And victory for Smith's side today in the FA Trophy over Billericay Town, would make it a decent week all round for the King's Marsh Stadium side, after their second half battling exploits against Marlow last weekend.

Billericay may be a level above Sudbury in the non-league pyramid, but they are having a difficult time right now, sit second bottom of the Ryman Premier Division, and lost 5-1 at home to Kingstonian on Tuesday night.

However, all that matters little for Smith, who will be warning his side not to even think about being favourites.

“It's a difficult game for us to win,” he said.

“They are still favourites for the tie and quite frankly they haven't had too different a start to the season than us.

“It was a good win against Arlesey, we played well throughout and I'm hoping it will be a victory that helps us turn the corner.

“Last weekend we finished the game well and I told the players to take the positives from that, which they did.”

Smith has certainly not found life easy in his first managerial job, but while he never gave up as a player, so he will not give up as a boss.

“I like a challenge and I think it's fair to say it's been a challenge here,” he said.

“But I'll do things my way and everyone knows that. I'm enjoying it a lot though and that's the most important thing.”

Bury Town have no game today.
