AMBITIOUS Bromsgrove Sporting will be attempting to break the 1,000 strong crowd barrier this Saturday when they entertain Aylesbury at the Victoria Ground.

The Rouslers have gone close to breaking the magic four figure barrier on previous occasions but fallen agonisingly short.

Their highest attendance for a league game remains at 956 but officials believe the visit of Aylesbury presents an ideal opportunity to rewrite their record books.

The contest comes at a perfect time with the Rouslers sitting pretty on top of the Evo Stik Southern League Central Division One.

The Rouslers returned to top spot with a crushing 5-1 win at North Leigh, while previous leaders Corby Town crashed to defeat following a feisty encounter with Peterborough Sports.

Sporting boss Brendan Kelly paid tribute to the club's fantastic support this week.

He said: " The fans are simply amazing. They gave the North Leigh crowd at 177 and we must have provided 140 of them.

"I spoke to North Leigh's kit man and he told me they only get around 30 to 40 supporters for most home games.

"We have a hardcore of supporters who follow us both home and away. We're very close to them and we know many by first names terms. In fact some of the players go and sit with them after games.

"It really is fantastic because our supporters fill the back of most goals during our away games and cheer us on.

"We've had a bit of a wobble and a couple of bad results, but now we're back on the wagon again with three straight wins."

Kelly was equally enthused with the form shown by strike partners Jason Cowley and Richard Gregory.

Both struck twice in the victory over North Leigh, with Gregory having now registered 15 goals in as many games.

Cowley was also completing a personal landmark with his 100th game for Sporting.

Kelly added: "They were both excellent. They have only played 90 minutes together twice this season owing to injury and suspension. But they're both on fire and we look ruthless going forward."

But boss Kelly was equally excited by the overall contribution from the squad.

He said: "I brought all three subs on against North Leigh and they all made an impact. I was especially pleased with Jake Heath who scored a 25 yard special at a crucial time in the game.

"Jack Cresswell and Ashanti Price also came on and proved just as effective. It told me that whoever I play, it won't weaken the side and that's important as they all have a part to play. No matter what side I put out, they're all capable and it shows that we have great strength in depth."

After Saturday's clash with Aylesbury the Rouslers then travel to Thame United on Tuesday.
