The second team bandwagon moved on with an efficient performance from a very determined Stafford team, who knew that a win today would set up next week’s crunch game with Stone.
Stafford dominated the first half and could easily have had more than their 3-2 lead at half time – redditch indebted to their gk who produced a number of saves to keep the likes of Howe and Sunderland at bay.
Fortunately he was powerless to stop Jack Ball.
As the second half wore on Stafford started to put their chances away as our opponents tired, and the final score line of 6-2 did not flatter us – but I would be a little biased.
Stafford go into next week’s game knowing that a win will almost ensure promotion. If other results go our way today, promotion can be sealed next weekend – let’s hope Telford got a win today.
For such a big game against our local rivals it would be great to get as much support as we can – we will be starting at 2:30 in stone, so if you can come down after any games (or before) it would be great!!!
