Smith pleased with Bromsgrove Sporting's display against Romulus ahead of tough Rugby Town test

BROMSGROVE Sporting will be looking to get back on track in the Midland League Premier Division this weekend when they welcome Rugby Town to the Victoria Ground.

The Valley have had a mixed start to life at Step Five following their relegation from the Northern Premier First Division South last term, and they are currently sitting in 11th after 12 games.

But Smith is all too wary of the threat his opponents have this weekend with the likes of prolific non-League striker David Kolodynski among their ranks.

After putting last Saturday’s ‘horror show’ at Shepshed Dynamo to bed with a 3-2 victory over Romulus in the Birmingham FA Senior Challenge Cup on Tuesday night, the Sporting boss was pleased with the reaction of his players.

“It was important my players went out there and gave it a real good go,” he said.

“And all credit goes to them because they worked their socks off.

“A couple of mistakes gifted Romulus some cheap goals but we kept knocking on the door and I think the result was a fair reflection of the game overall.

“We have got another tough side in Rugby this weekend and we are going to have to be right at it to get the points.”

Meanwhile, Sporting have been drawn away to Sporting Khalsa in the FA Vase second round on November 11.

The tie will be played at the Castlecroft Stadium, home of AFC Wulfrunians, because Khalsa’s Aspray Arena is undergoing ground developments.

Sporting had been exempt to this stage after reaching the semi-finals last term.
