Borough manager Brendan Phillips hopes his side will be jolted out of any signs of
complacency by last weekends defeat at Merthyr Tydfil.
All their main rivals won while Borough were losing in South Wales and their points
margin at the top of the league was reduced from eighteen to fifteen in ninety minutes of
"It was disappointing. We did not play as well as we have been. The pitch
conditions were very heavy after a lot of rain and Merthyr have just undergone a change of
manager and a change of ownership.
"Their players were up for it and we did not start well. It took us too long to
get into the match and we got back into it too late to force a result."
Borough hope to make amends and to reassert their superiority over the other premier
division sides by beating Bromsgrove Rovers at the Manor Park ground tomorrow.
They despatched Rovers by 4-0 in the away fixture but they go into this game with
injury and illness concerns centred on two of their strikers.
Joey OConnor has had influenza and Anton Thomas collected a groin strain at
Merthyr. But Dave Crowley is back after suspension.
