It’s back to home comforts tomorrow following successive away games, as we welcome Bustleholme to Long Lane.
While we go into the game comfortably in midtable following Monday’s ‘Battle of Long Lane’ victory over Wyrley United, Bustleholme come into the game bottom after three defeats from as many games. In their defence they have faced tough opposition in the form of Wellington Amateurs, high flying Darlaston Town and Newport Town.
Ahead of the game, manager Matty Lovatt said ‘We’ve really worked to ensure the lads aren't taking anything for granted tomorrow. They've set a standard last Monday which we’re now expecting them to work to as a minimum. If they take Bustleholme lightly and think too much into the league table down the bottom, then they will be in for a torrid afternoon.
Only Darlaston have set a pattern whereby you can probably predict what's going happen, the rest can all beat each other by the looks of things.’
He then added, ‘I'm sure Bustleholme would have strengthened this week so expect to see a different side fielded for them. It's for that reason we were very strict on the lads at training last night and made sure it was very much serious business.’
When asked about team news ahead of the game, Lovatt said ‘I still have injuries and suspensions to deal with so will look to rotate the squad again.’
Kick off is at 3pm at Long Lane, we hope to see you there.
