The Opposition:



The Yeltz are currently in 19th position with games in hand on the teams above them.  In recent weeks they have been dragged into a relegation battle after registering only two wins in their last nine games, coupled with the loss of on-loan top scorer Kaiman Anderson, who had netted 18 goals before being recalled by parent club Shrewsbury in January.  This has proved a turning point in the Yeltz's season as they had earlier beaten Nantwich, Warrington, Grantham and Workington.  Manager John Hill recently reached 200 games as manager in the 2-1 defeat against Spennymoor two weeks ago at The Grove.


Recent Form:

The Yeltz's last game saw a 1-0 away win at Frickley Athletic - their first win in six games - thanks to Daniel Bragoli's header(pictured above) that moved them three points above the relegation zone.



Recent Results:


Frickley Athletic 0-1 Halesowen Town

Halesowen Town's current league form reads - WLDLLLW


One to Watch - Serigne Mor Diop

A new signing from Rushall Olympic, the 6"4 french striker was previously signed by Steve Staunton whilst manager of Darlington and went on to score 6 goals in 23 games for the Quakers in 2011.


The Gaffer says:


"We have put ourselves in a great position but we cannot afford to be complacent.  Halesowen will be tricky opponents and we won't be underestimating them, so we must keep our focus and continue our recent form for the final 10 games to finish as high as we can.  There will be many more twists and turns between now and the end of April so it's important we keep the momentum going and keep the pressure on the teams in and around us."
