LUDLOW boss Chris Waldron knows others will be after a favour from his League Cup semi-finalists this weekend – but he is only bothered about their own objectives.

Waldron’s men brushed aside AFC Bridgnorth Development 3-1 last weekend to secure a West Midlands Division Two League Cup semi-final meeting at Gornal Colts next month.

Gornal – second in the table with a game in hand on leaders Church Stretton – also visit Ludlow in a vital league game this Saturday that could determine the destiny of the title.

Victory would put Gornal in pole position but fourth-placed Ludlow have their own motivation ahead of their final league game of the campaign, says Waldron.

He insisted: “We have a semi-final to look forward to and we just want to keep the momentum going, so we want to win the game.

“It’s a game we need to win to stay in the top four – if we lose, the teams around us can go above us. We could drop to sixth or seventh and we don’t want that.

“Gornal are a very good side going forward – they have two lads up front who are very good – but I think you can get at them and score goals against them. It should be a good game.”

The two sides will meet again at Gornal in the cup semi-final on April 13 after a brace from Tom Everall and a Dan Griffiths strike helped Ludlow down Bridgnorth.

Everall tucked home from a Aaron Dovey short corner to put Ludlow ahead before the break and made it 2-0 with a clever lob early in the second half.

Bridgnorth pulled one back but Griffiths side-footed home Kieran Dovey’s cross to seal a last-four trip to Gornal.

Waldron added: “After we got to the semi-final of the county cup and just came up short, it would be nice to go one step further in this one."
