VS Rugby v Redditch - Preview
[DR MARTENS LEAGUE MIDLAND DIVISION]

VS Rugby are in FA Trophy action at Redditch – hoping to repeat an earlier success.

Martin Sockett’s men saw off the Worcestershire side earlier in the season when Lee Lavery scored twice but Redditch have done well since and are currently sixth in the league.

Sockett said:

"I know this is the sort of thing that can rebound on you – but I wasn’t that impressed with them when we faced them. They are big and strong and try to stop sides playing. We didn’t allow them to do that and won through on the day.

"I want to see a response from my side. We lost 5-1 at Clevedon and even though we had eight men out, and all their goals were dubious, I expect more.

"We had two young lads – Danny Green and Adam Wardle – making their debuts and when you are not experienced it can be hard when decisions go against you so often. We were also without several of our experienced players who can keep a team together."

Keiren Sullivan, Gary Smith, Phil Murphy, Richard Hamer and Ashley Warner should all return, but Ian Scott, Matt Owen and Connor Hance are all out.
