Tenbury United 9 Kingstone Rovers 0

PLAYER-BOSS Nicky Stocker believes Tenbury United have nothing to fear in Saturday’s top-of-the-table battle at Ledbury Town Reserves.

United have won all their eight matches in Herefordshire League Division One and thumped Kingstone Rovers 9-0 in last Saturday’s one-sided Jock Handley Cup tie at Palmer’s Meadow.

Stocker admitted: “We don’t really too much about Ledbury. They’ve lost a couple of games but I think they will be more worried about us than we will be about them.

“If we can keep a clean sheet we will beat anyone in the league.

“No-one can stop us from scoring goals, we’ve proved that, and Ledbury will see that in the paper and be worrying about what we can do rather than on playing their own game.

“If we go there and play our natural attacking game then I’m confident we will beat them”.

The experienced Dale Withers was outstanding against Kingstone Rovers last Saturday and took the man of the match plaudits.

United would have been a little disappointed to have slammed only nine goals past an out of sorts travelling team.

Withers and Ian Patterson both bagged a brace, while captain Mike Foster, Robbie Farrar, Ryan Morris, George Pearson and Stocker also found the net.

Withers said: “We had a couple of the usual starting eleven out and it’s been good that the players have come in and filled the spots like they had always been there.

“We’ve got youth, pace and goals and that’s a handful for any side in any division.

“One of our main aims this season was to get the youth involved, which we have, and we’ve been really lucky that the young lads that have come in have been brilliant.

“We are all treading on new ground, no-one has played in this league before so for the young guys to come in and step as they have, you couldn’t have asked for any more.”

Aaron Morris will be returning after missing last weekend’s cup match.

Zack Yarranton and Morris scored as United drew 2-2 in a midweek friendly match against Ludlow Town Colts.

“The match at Ledbury Town Reserves is our last game before Christmas and we will have a few drinks afterwards.

“It’s a massive game and, hopefully, the lads will be up for it.

“This will be the biggest game of the season.

“I thought, at the start of the season, that Ledbury and Brimfield would be the teams to beat.

“Brimfield have had a few mixed results and Woofferton have been on an excellent run.”
