Halesowen Town FC travel to Rushall Olympic this weekend as they look to go seven games without a loss in the Northern Premier League. Rushall lie six places behind Halesowen with five games in hand. If games go Halesowen's way they could end up in the top five for the first time this season with both Ashton United and Ilkeston's game off this weekend.
John Hill said, '"It's a very tough fixture, we will have to do better defensively no doubt if we are to come away with any points but I do know we are fully capable of doing that."
John Hill believed a change of shape during the Second Half won his side the game after the Yeltz claimed all three points with a 2-1 win over Ramsbottom United, writes Dale Brookes.
Hill said, "I knew it would be a tight game and I thought first half we were poor. But in the second period we changed the shape and made a couple of substitutions." Hill continued, "Those changes certainly had an impact and won us the game".
You may be aware that every year the Halesowen & Rowley Regis Rotary Club raise a lot of money for charity through the santa sleigh which is driven around the local area and parked at venues in the town centre. This runs every day up until Christmas to a set route that tries to encompass as many residential areas as possible.
Keeper Daniel Platt will be out for up to two months after another freak injury in yesterday's match against Ramsbottom United. Platt saw a specialist last night at hospital after the ball clattered his face in the first half. He is now awaiting an emergency operation to repair a detached retina, if he hadn't had gone to hospital so quickly it is possible that sight could have been lost in that eye.
