Hednesford Town go into Saturday’s game against Rushall Olympic aiming to end a rather unwanted record of not having won at Dales Lane for over 20 years.
The last time the Pitmen tasted victory on Rushall’s pitch came all the way back in September 1994. Since then Hednesford have made the short trip to Dales Lane six times, with the last coming in 2013 when the Pitmen were denied a victory in the 89th minute.
After a convincing 5-0 win over Sutton Coldfield Town on Tuesday evening, Liam McDonald is looking forward to what he is expecting to be a tough game against another local side.
“The games are relentless, they are coming thick and fast and with this one being a local derby, it will be good for the supporters and the players who are looking forward to it.
“Rushall are flying at the moment in the league, so it will be a tough one for us. It will be a different game to the other night and will no doubt be fiercely contested.”
McDonald only has one selection concern and that comes in the centre half position with Calum Flanagan suspended for one game following his sending off last weekend. Other than that, the manager has a squad with a clean bill of health to pick his team from, with all members of the squad who picked up knocks in recent weeks now being fully fit once again.
