Droitwich Spa joint-boss Oliver expecting another tough test at Wrens Nest

Craig Gibbons 13th Dec, 2018

JOINT-BOSS Wayne Oliver says Droitwich Spa will have to be at their best to come away with victory from Wrens Nest.

Wrens Nest are currently in the top-five of West Midlands One and play their games at The Beeches, home of Tividale.

The Saltmen, though, have won their last three games in all competitions and Oliver would like to keep that going.

“At the moment every team we have come up against is within the top-five,” said Oliver, who is boosted by the returns of Max Crisp and Matt Seeley.

“Teams are starting poorly but whenever they come up against us they seem to be on a good run of form so it’s going to be tough.

“We don’t know much about Wrens Nest but having took teams I’ve managed before to Tividale I know what the pitch is like.

“It’s going to be an interesting game and they’re in the top-five for a reason.

“We will have to put on one of our best performances to get something from the game.”

The Saltmen moved back to the top of the table last Saturday with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Allscott.

James Lemon netted his 24th goal of the campaign in the 83rd minute to secure three points for Spa.

“Allscott had a game plan and they stuck to it,” said Oliver.

“They restricted us to only a few chances and the game was won with a moment of brilliance.

“If we can grind out results that’s fine because at the end of the day it’s the same return as winning pretty.”
