MANAGER Russell Dodd says he targets more of the same in Saturday’s (3pm) Midland Football League Premier Division encounter with AFC Wulfrunians, following an 11-1 thrashing of Ellistown in the FA Vase.

The dominant win, courtesy of a Stuart Hendrie hat-trick, a Corey Currithers brace, an own goal and strikes from Aaron Brown, Shay Palmer, Connor Doyle, Ryan Conlon, Chandler Pegg, sets up a meeting with fellow Premier Division side Worcester City on Saturday September 14.

Brown, who came out of retirement to help out Dodd’s side in the heart of defence, was able to celebrate a goal inside the first minute on his return to the team, a strike which Dodd says helped allay fears of a struggle against the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division side.

“After such a poor run of form I was hesitant going into this game against unknown opposition,” he said.

“But with Aaron scoring after just a minute, any nerves were calmed and from then on it was one way traffic and a ruthless display from a team looking to prove itself.

“With senior players still to return, we must now look to transfer that form into our league games, starting at AFC Wulfrunians on Saturday.”
