Bromsgrove Sporting midfielder Robbie Bunn writes for The Standard in his weekly column and reflects on the weekend’s postponement and midweek clash with Halesowen Town.
WE THOUGHT Saturday’s game at Lye was going to be on as we had the call to say prepare properly.
But we were then told at 11am that it was definitely off.
Obviously it was frustrating as it had been a while without football but it was nice to get some action against Halesowen on Tuesday.
When I saw our county cup opponents Dudley Sports had pulled out I thought it was going to be training or no game which is gutting really because you want to get out there.
Thankfully, we got a friendly which was ideal.
Any friendly is all about making yourself sharp for Saturday but I thought we held our own.
In the second half, we did really well and should have scored from our chances.
If it was a league game we would have deserved at least a point.
Of course there are things to work on but it was nice to see the new lads getting some game time.
I thought Drew (Canavan) was excellent and seems to be an excellent addition.
The friendly kept things ticking over and hopefully we will get a win on Saturday going into the big games against Worcester City.
We say every week each team in this league, no matter whether they are top or bottom, will give us a battle and if we are not at it we will lose points.
At this stage of the season we do not want to be doing that so hopefully we can take the three points against Shawbury on Saturday and be top after Christmas.
