DROITWICH Spa boss Andy Crowther admits it is still early days but the club’s main aim is to win the title this season following a strong start to the campaign.

The Saltmen lead the Midland Football League Division One table by a single point with a game in-hand on closest challengers Hinckley AFC.

And Crowther insists his side are relishing the challenge of remaining top of the table after suffering defeat in the play-off final last season.

Crowther said: “It’s early doors, we take each game as it comes and hope we can stay top of the tree, we’re all in it together and we’re all working together towards our main aim which is the title.

“If you’re top of the table, teams want to come and show that they can beat you, I wouldn’t say there’s any added pressure.

“The lads are used to being up around at the top of the table at whatever level we’re playing at, we relish it and relish each game.”

The Saltmen have won their last seven games in all competitions and return to action against Nuneaton Griff this Saturday (November 11) having triumphed 6-0 in the reverse fixture at the start of October.

And Crowther admitted it has been a frustrating couple of weeks for his squad, after their fixture against Chelmsley Town fell foul of the weather last weekend.

Crowther added: “It’s always frustrating, we had a free week and then the game was called off, it’s been two weeks since we played a game.

“You always want to carry on when you’re on a good run but we’ve got a couple of players back from injury.

“It doesn’t matter what the last result was, it means nothing, anything can happen in football, we approach it exactly the same.

“The confidence has been high in the whole squad from day dot, the additions have complemented what we already had.

“We’ve got two or three players pushing for each position now so the players who get the shirts know they have to perform otherwise someone is chomping at the bit to take their place.”

Droitwich’s clash with Nuneaton takes place on Saturday, November 11 with kick-off at 3pm at the King George Playing Fields.
