New bar set after 6-0 win over Team Dudley, says Droitwich Spa joint-boss

DELIGHTED joint-boss Wayne Oliver says Droitwich Spa have set a new bar after thrashing Team Dudley 6-0 last Saturday.

The Saltmen are at home to Shropshire side Allscott on Saturday and Oliver is hoping the players can continue on from their emphatic victory over a side made up of students from within Dudley College.

James Lemon bagged a hat-trick while Dan Cottrill, Ben Tilbury and Andy Crowther also netted for Spa who claimed their first victory over a team in the top-five of West Midlands One.

“It was up there with one of the best performances since myself and Mark (Owen) took over,” said Oliver.

“We never had any worries about the surface as it was a 3G pitch and the lads just took to the game right from the very start.

“Generally we were very, very pleased with the display and the lads have set a new bar.

“They have shown they can do it on an artificial surface so let’s see if it can be replicated on the grass.

“Allscott play a tight game and are very difficult to break down so we know we’re in for a tough battle.”

Only defender Mike Seeley (away) and midfielder Max Crisp (suspended) will be unavailable for the Allscott clash.

Spa won the previous encounter 3-0 back in October, thanks to goals from Tilbury (2) and Lemon.
