Boss backs Town to start climbing the table

ALCESTER Town return to Midland League Division Three action on Saturday with a visit to Perrywood and boss James Robbins is confident his men have the armoury to come away with maximum points.

The match will be Town’s first league fixture for four weeks but Robbins has seen enough from his side in their most recent performances and in training to know they are capable of climbing the table.

“I am looking forward to Saturday’s game. It’s four weeks since we last played in the league, but now we can look to knuckle down, pick points up and get ourselves up the table,” said Robbins.

“Over the last few games I have praised the lads’ efforts but it is now time to turn that into points and I will be looking to go on a run between now and new year.

“We have managed to add to the group over the last few weeks and I am really pleased with the additions, they have given us a major boost.

“I saw Perrywood on Saturday (3-2 home win over Badsey Rangers) and they are on a decent run, winning three of their last four games, but we go there knowing we have been performing well, preparing well and I am hopeful we can come away with a positive result.”

Town will be boosted by the return of top scorer Matt Layton who missed the Wrens Nest game with an ankle injury, but Kieran Downey starts his three-match ban following his sending off against Wrens Nest and long-term absentee Richard Eastell is a fortnight away from a return following his hamstring injury.
