Sikh Hunters 3 Tenbury United 0.
AARON Morris believes Tenbury United remain in the West Midlands League Division Two title race.
He said United were unlucky in Saturday’s defeat at Sikh Hunters and they remain only six points off top spot.
“The final score wasn’t really a fair reflection of the game,” said the versatile Morris.
“Robbie Farrar played in goal and did a good job. But we dominated the first 20 to 25 minutes and had a few free-kicks in dangerous areas. They had a chance and their lad stuck it in the top corner for a fantastic goal.
“We had to push forward in the second-half and they scored two goals in two minutes to finish it off. We had a lot of possession but they were well organised and their fitness levels were better than us.”
Colin Powell’s United are 12th in the league with seven points from seven matches. Team Dudley are top of the table with 13 points. United host basement boys Malvern Town Reserve at Palmer’s Meadow this Saturday. Struggling Malvern were thumped 10-0 at Wrens last Saturday.
“Normally, we play Malvern in midweek and they tend to put out a few first-teamers,” said Morris, who has a golfing trip to Scotland this weekend. “But, hopefully, that won’t happen and the lads have got a great chance to get back on track.”
l Tenbury Athletic travel to Kingspan in the Jewson Herefordshire Sunday League this weekend.
Athletic will be looking to find their form after crashing to a 4-2 home defeat to Burghill Rangers in Division One North.
Ciaran Rogers and Fraser Clayton scored in Sunday’s defeat which was disappointing after Athletic had romped to a 9-0 home win over Holmer Athetic in the Shelton Cup.
Rogers fired in a hat-trick, while Toby Gittens (2), James Williams, Daniel Jara, Chris Lort and Callum Spires also scored in the first-round rout.
