Smith: Bromsgrove Sporting in high spirits for Lye Town clash

Craig Gibbons 22nd Sep, 2017

BROMSGROVE Sporting manager Paul Smith says the club is in high spirits for their Midland League Premier Division clash with Lye Town this weekend.

The Rouslers welcome seventh-placed Lye to the Victoria Ground tomorrow (Saturday) hoping to pick up their sixth win in eight games to maintain an early title push.

After securing a 1-0 league victory at much-fancied Coventry United on Saturday before coming from behind to beat Pershore Town 3-2 in the Polymac Packaging League Cup on Tuesday night, Smith told the Standard says there is a good buzz going around the Sporting camp.

“We are on a good run of form at the moment,” he said. “We deserved more than a draw with Khalsa a fortnight ago but we followed that up by doing the job at a very good Coventry United side.

“We then managed to beat Pershore despite not playing at our best so we are in high spirits right now considering the numbers we have had missing.

“However, the squad is still very strong and when required the lads have stepped up to the plate.

“To be three points off the top considering the problems we have had the last month is brilliant and I am licking my lips for the time the squad settles down and we are at full strength.”

Youngster Nathan Binner is expected to be called back up to the first-team from the Reserves after impressing against Pershore while new signing Guy Clarke from Stratford Town is also in line for a start after playing the full 90 minutes on Tuesday.

Max Loveridge (holiday), Liam Spink (holiday), Joe Ward (shin), Reece Hewitt (hip) and Wade Malley (ankle) will be unavailable for the Lye clash.
