FOLLOWING Saturday`s 3-0 home defeat at the hands of North Ferriby United, our first in the league this season, Rushall Olympic will be looking to bounce back from that this evening when we travel to the New Manor Ground to take on newcomers Ilkeston in a 7.45pm kick off.
Since their promotion this season the Robins have yet to register a victory and they have already been beaten at Dales Lane when they visited us two weeks ago and left with a 2-1 defeat.
However, Manager Kevin Wilson, is very experienced at this level and any side with Gary Ricketts in their ranks are sure to be a threat.
The Robins will certainly have something to prove tonight, not only will be they looking to avenge their earlier defeat by us, but perhaps more importantly they will be hoping to start moving up the League table.
Tonight, kicks off an important week for the Pics, because this coming Saturday we are on FA Cup duty making the short trip to Bridgnorth Town.
For the game tonight, though, Manager Neil Kitching, is hoping that central defender Lucan Spittle has recovered from a virus and also has new signing Gavin Caines available.
