BROMSGROVE Sporting boss Brendan Kelly believes his side will benefit from the experience after they were beaten 3-1 by Corby Town this week in the FA Trophy.

Kelly said: "After the game, at first I thought we didn't deserve to lose. But thinking on it afterwards, I realised that Corby had done a real professional job on us.

"Yes, we were the victims of an horrific penalty decision at a time in the game when I thought we were well on top.

"But Corby's game management was excellent. They came out of the blocks very quickly and were very dangerous at set pieces.

"They were no nonsense in defence, difficult to breakdown and very good at slowing the game down.

"They stifled us and didn't allow us to get into any sort of rhythm going

"It was a professional performance where their experience told against a younger side.

"The game also taught me that we cannot afford to make errors at this level and expect to get away with it. You make errors and you get punished. But we certainly won't fear Corby when we play them again."

The Rouslers return to Southern League action this Saturday when they entertain Dunstable Town.

Last Saturday's clash with Corby just failed to break the 1,000 spectator barrier with an attendance of 956 and Kelly added:

"It was still a tremendous turnout and a bigger crowd than any of the games in the division above. I hope they all come back again this Saturday."

Kelly can welcome back striker Jason Cowley from suspension and Jack Cresswell following his wedding duty, leaving him with a full squad to select from.
