DANNY Janes has challenged Alcester Town to remain unbeaten between now and the end of the season to push for a promotion and cup double.
Town booked their place in the Challenge Vase final against GNP Sports last weekend after last weekend’s 2-0 win against Coventrians.
But Alcester are still very much eying promotion from the Midland League Division Three, says the manager.
Alcester currently lie seventh in the table, and still have 16 league games to play. They trail second-placed Bartestree by ten points with six games in hand, while third-placed AFC Solihull – tomorrow’s planned fixture, weather permitting, at Stratford Road – are seven points ahead with seven matches in hand.
But with such a discreption between games played for the leading clubs, Janes says half-a-dozen clubs will fancy their chances.
“We’ve still got to play half our games,” said Janes. “There’s a lot of football to be played.
“I think we are well placed to push for the top three and hopefully that would be enough to get us promotion. That’s the target.
“We are good enough to go unbeaten through the rest of the season; we have got the players capable of winning every game, including when we play the leader GNP, and that’s what we’ll be striving to do.”
The weather will put big doubts over tomorrow’s match going ahead but Alcester then head to Solihull the following week. Matt Fearon, Louis Bridges and Chris Mills, who were all missing last weekend, are back available.
The cup final against GNP has been pencilled in for 8th May at Racing Club Warwick’s ground.
