MANAGER Keith Draper admitted to getting it all wrong as Studley surrendered top spot in Midland Division One after being held to a goalless draw by next to bottom side Brocton.

Draper took the blame after his players drew a blank and said: "The formation I picked was totally wrong.

"I went with four in the middle, but I knew within 15 minutes it was the wrong call as the players just got bogged down.

"I changed it at half time and went with three up front, but by that stage, the damage was done.

"We'd given Brocton something to cling onto by that stage and they went onto defend as though their lives depended upon it."

Walsall Wood have now edged above Studley on goal difference but have the luxury of three games in hand.

With Studley drawing for the second week running, it has also given the chasing pack the chance to close.

Draper is determined that Studley get back to winning ways this Saturday when they travel to Heath Hayes.

He added: "We've operated a rotation system with the players all season but that is set to change now, because I left players out against Brocton when I shouldn't have.

"Sometimes you have to put your hand up and admit you've made mistakes and I got it wrong against Brocton.

"Nobody is more disappointed than myself, but at least we didn't lose - in fact we've only lost once in the last 17 games.

"All we can do is dust ourselves down and go again this Saturday."
