Sporting aim for a Conway return
6:37pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Sport
JOINT Bromsgrove Sporting boss Adie Mander admitted to giving his players a half time roasting - despite the fact they were leading Lichfield City 2-0 at the time, writes Nick Pullen.
Mander maintained his unhappiness with his side’s defending and the decisions they were making.
He claimed: “I had a bit of a go at them, even though we were leading. I wasn’t happy with the performance.”
Sporting went onto obtain a 3-0 success courtesy of a couple of Matt Poyner goals with Will Tibbetts also on target.
The result maintains Sporting’s 100 per cent start to the season and Mander insisted: “I couldn’t have asked for a better start. Great results, but mediocre displays”.
Mander is attempting to bring striker Chris Conway back to the Victoria Ground after serving Stourport Swifts with seven days notice.
Conway scored 13 goals in 17 matches for the Rouslers last season, despite being hit by injury, and then moved to Southern League outfit Evesham United.
The former Aston Villa youngster has started the last two games for Stourport but could be tempted to a return to his old club.
Busy Mander is also trying to tempt Rushall Olympic wideman Nelson Taylor to Sporting.
He also expects to have Ricardo Richards, who suffered a groin injury, back available for Saturday’s visit from Coventry-based club Alvis.
Sporting then face Earlswood Town at the Victoria Ground on Monday, August Bank Holiday.
The match should attract a huge crowd, especially as former Sporting boss Keith Draper is now in charge at Earlswood.
Mander admitted: “It’s going to be a very tough game for both sides and it only adds more spice to the fact Earlswood are managed by a former Sporting boss. It’s going to be a very intruiging contest.”
Earlswood signed a host of players from Bromsgrove during the summer, with including keeper Tom Savage, Luke Dugmore, Keith Draper Jr and Joe Brookes.
