Wendron United boss Michael O'Neill is looking for his side to bounce back from their home 6-0 defeat to Bodmin Town in the Walter C Parson Cup when they take on Sticker in the Quarter Final of the Cornwall Senior Cup on Saturday.

United had a number of faces out through injury and with Covid, and were unfortunate on the pitch too, hitting the woodwork on five occasions as they crashed out of the trophy.

Previewing this week's fixture O'Neill said: "I just want a reaction from last time out,(the Bodmin defeat) obviously it has the prestige of being the Cup Quarter final and a place in the Semi Final attached to it.

"I'm just looking for a reaction, we are progressing so well this year that actually I go into every game expecting the top standards and the top level performance that I know we can do.

"Last week certainly in taking chances we let ourselves down a bit. I'm looking for a reaction and for us to do ourselves justice."

Wendron were due to play Liskeard Athletic in the league on Saturday, January 8 in what would have been a clash of the sides third and fourth in the table, however, O'Neill hoped that though it affected their preparations, they've still got a game plan to put into practice this week at training ahead of the match:
"If we had known that Saturday would have been a non-fixture it would have worked to our advantage because we'd have had two sets of training sessions to prepare for the game whereas obviously, we prepared last time out for the Liskeard game (which was eventually postponed).

"It is routine business for us at this stage but we have definitely got a plan to work on at training to take into the game." Said the Manager.

Despite the cup loss to Bodmin, Wendron have won their last four league outings in a row and have done the double over Sticker already this season. Defeating them 4-0 and 6-2 respectively.

Regardless, of this O'Neill thinks that these victories will not give Wendron the upper hand or a psychological advantage heading into this game. He said: "It works against us if anything. Similar to other teams we have played this season, every time you play against a side they learn a little more about you.

"I am sure that Sticker will identify bits they think they can exploit in our game as we will in theirs as well. The fact that we have played them twice already is a disadvantage to us and that means we are going to have to be a little more focused than any other time we have played them this season to make sure we can be the best we can."
