“We have to wary of the fact that this could be a potential banana skin and we need make sure we give 100 per cent to get a result.
“Chichester have made good progress in recent years and gave us a real run for our money when we played them last season, so we can’t take anything for granted.”
“They are a side that’s improving all the time and we’re hoping for a big crowd to cheer the players on.”
