Hednesford Town boss Rob Smith has pointed to his record in the competition in recent seasons as a marker of how seriously his side will be taking tonight’s Birmingham Senior Cup Quarter Final against West Bromwich Albion at Keys Park, kick-off 7.45pm.
Smith has led his team to a semi-final versus Tamworth last season and, during the club’s superb promotion season from the Evo-stik Northern Premier League in 2012/13, Darren Campion held the trophy aloft after a 4-1 victory over Sutton Coldfield Town at the Banks’s Stadium so the Hednesford faithful have had their fair share of thrills and spills historically.
‘I think everyone knows that we take this competition very seriously, our record in the past two seasons speaks for itself. I want to win every game I play in and tonight’s match will be no different.
‘West Brom will have a lot of possession but you expect that playing against a quality side. We played them in pre-season so have a good idea as to what to expect from them.’
A decent crowd is expected at Keys Park for a midweek game but The Pitmen will be without captain and leader Darren Campion after the left back picked up an injury during Saturday’s victory against Chorley, while Chris Westwood is still struggling for fitness.
George McGee, a player who has started his month loan spell from Birmingham City very positively, is cup-tied having played for the Blues in a previous round but Nick Rushton and Jack Thomas are both eligible for selection.
