Droitwich Spa boss Crowther delighted after tough start

DROITWICH Spa manager Andy Crowther is expecting another “difficult” game when his side travel to Wyrley United this weekend.


Spa are flying high in second place in Division One of the West Midlands Regional League and are unbeaten after eight matches.


That’s despite playing the majority of their games away from home this season – having played just two matches at their home ground Walshes Meadow.


However, boss Crowther is delighted with the start his side have made and is confident Droitwich will continue their fine form against Wyrley.


Crowther said: “Wyrley is another difficult place to go to, that’s shown over the past few seasons with our results there, it’s going to be a difficult game.


“In the position we’re in at the moment, having played the majority of our games away, I’m fairly happy with where we’re at.


“The lads have done superbly with all the away games, if we can keep picking up the points on the road and get a good run of games at homes, I’m fairly confident.”


The Saltmen were held to a 2-2 draw by Wrens Nest last time out and Crowther expects his team to be challenging for the title this season.


“The way the game panned out, I was happy with the result, they’ve had a decent start to the season, it’s a difficult place to go, I’m fairly happy to come away with a point.


“The lads have all tucked in, they work hard with a never give up attitude and they’ve plugged out the results away from home.


“They’ve all got behind the management team and they’re doing well.


“I expect us to be challenging at the top, we should still be there or thereabouts.”


Wyrley United v Droitwich Spa kicks off at 3pm tomorrow at Long Lane.
