FOOTBALL - Robins at full strength ahead of Saturday Vase semi-final

KNOWLE have a full strength squad available for this weekend’s Birmingham County FA Saturday Vase semi-final clash with AFC Coventry Rangers.

The Robins saw last weekend’s league match against Cadbury Athletic called off due to a frozen pitch and head to Coventry having won all nine of their league and cup fixtures since the start of the year.

And Knowle are the only side to take points off Coventry at home this season after the two clubs played out a 1-1 draw back in October.

Coventry beat Midland Football League Division Two rivals Hampton 3-2 last weekend to secure their place in the last four whilst the Robins beat AFC Somers 2-1 last month.

And Robins pair Lewis Rainey and Nathan Corry are both free from injury with Knowle expected to be at full strength this weekend.

Knowle’s joint manager Matthew Seeley said: “Mitchell Avenue is always a difficult place to go and play football. We are expecting a really tough match.

“Rangers are a decent side. This is an important competition, and we are looking forward to the game with a positive attitude.”

Entrance is £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.

Knowle travel to Coventry on Saturday, March 18 with kick-off at 2pm at Mitchell Avenue.
