The Pitmen head to Aggborough, the temporary home of Worcester City, on Bank Holiday Monday, aiming to put the disappointment of Saturday’s defeat against FC United of Manchester behind them.
Worcester’s current home ground has traditionally not been a happy hunting ground for Hednesford over the years, with the two most recent results seeing winning positions squandered by Town in two 2-2 draws.
There was, of course, controversy last season, when on Boxing Day the Pitmen led 3-0 with just 13 minutes to go, only for the game to be abandoned due to deteriorating weather and pitch conditions.
Caretaker manager Chris Brindley goes into the game having some selection issues to be decided, with this being the second game inside three days. He will, however, finally be able to call upon defender John Disney again after he was declared fit following a hamstring injury picked up on the eve of the new season.
As with last season’s visit(s), Hednesford Town supporters will be housed in block M of the East (Green) Stand and will have access to one half of the South (Yellow) Stand. Travelling coaches and cars can park in the South Stand Car Park. Charges are £2 for cars and £5 for coaches.
There will be NO access to the Aggborough Suite or Final Whistle for Hednesford supporters before or after the game. However, fans are welcome to use the Kidderminster Supporters Club at the rear of the East (Green) Stand. No Pass-outs will be given at any point once supporters have entered the stadium.
The Pitmen will be wearing their away kit for the game with a 3.00pm kick-off.
