Saltmen in the Hunt for three points in Walsall

Ben Tyler 28th Feb, 2020

DROITWICH Spa will face the unusual situation of playing a home game in Walsall during Saturday’s meeting with Sikh Hunters (3pm).

Due to flooding at their usual home at Stourport’s Walshes Meadow, the Saltmen will play their next four home fixtures at alternative venues.

After ‘hosting’ Hunters at the West Walsall E-ACT Academy this weekend, a home game against Wellington Amateurs (March 7) at the King George’s Playing Fields in Droitwich will be sandwiched in between fixtures against Wyrley (March 3) and Bustleholme (March 10) at the HDAnywhere Community Stadium in Malvern.

Droitwich have slipped to second in West Midlands (Regional) League Division One behind new leaders Allscott, who went top with a 3-2 defeat of FC Darlaston.

The Saltmen, just one point behind their rivals, will be more than confident of resuming their place at the summit considering the six games in hand.

Spa met Sikh Hunters last month when James Lemon and Matty Hunt fired them to a 2-0 win at Long Lane Park.

The Hunters are currently 11th and have enjoyed a mixed run of form since the turn of the year, winning three, drawing one and losing three, including a 6-0 humbling at Wrens Nest last weekend.
