Sporting have to turn up tonight, says Mason ahead of Hednesford trip

ASSISTANT manager Andy Mason says Bromsgrove Sporting have to be confident of getting back to winning ways despite their recent misfortunes when visiting Hednesford Town in tonight’s Southern League Premier Central clash.

The Rouslers are currently 17th in the table following Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat by Hitchin Town in front of a 600-strong maximum capacity crowd at the Victoria Ground, with Alex Marsh and Callum Stead striking in either half to hand Sporting a second consecutive defeat.

But despite the recent downturn in form in what has been a mixed start for Bromsgrove, Mason says Sporting have no choice but to put in a performance at Keys Park (7.30pm kick-off).

“Hednesford is a difficult place to go at the best of times, but on the back of two poor results, it becomes a bigger challenge as we look to get ourselves out of a rut,” he said.

“These will be very well organised and strong, so we will have to play a lot better than we have been. The beauty about football is that the games come thick and fast, so we are confident we can get something out of the game if we are at our very best all through the team.”

Visiting Rouslers making the trip to trip to Staffordshire can purchase tickets at the following link for tonight’s game, with prices ranging from £10 for adults, £7 for concessions, £7 for disabled fans (including a carer) and £5 for under-18s.

And Sporting’s assistant manager is urging the Bromsgrove faithful to back Brendan Kelly’s side to a much-needed three points, one they hope will help kickstart their season.

“There are no excuses, but we are still having to deal with a number of injuries which don’t seem to be clearing – to add to the list, Josh Quaynor is injured and Jason Cowley is extremely doubtful,” Mason added.

“We are going to need your help and support more than ever and we look forward to seeing you there.”

Meanwhile, tickets for Sporting’s next home game against Coleshill Town in the FA Trophy this Saturday go on general sale at 3pm today – head to Bromsgrove Sporting’s Twitter page @SportingFC or the official club website at to purchase.
