HONEST Bromsgrove Sporting boss Brendan Kelly believes the Evo Stik South Central Division One league title remains beyond their grasp despite his side’s epic 2-1 win at league leaders Peterborough Sports.

Early strikes from Jason Cowley and Kieron Westwood sent the Rouslers on top of the table but Kelly was quick to say: “I cannot see Peterborough slipping up. We’re two points ahead but Peterborough have three games in hand.

“We can only hope we’ve sewn some seeds of doubt, especially as Peterborough have some difficult fixtures coming up.

“Our game had everything with two good sides battling it out but I thought we edged it.

“There was a bit of a melee and they had a player sent off. But sometimes it’s harder to hold out against 10 men than 11, because they have nothing to lose.

“We came flying out of the blocks and went 2-0 up early on and could have got more. I think they were a bit shell-shocked by that.

“It leaves us as the only side with an unbeaten home record.

“We’ll just have to see how Peterborough react but we will keep going until its mathematically impossible”.

Kelly again paid tribute to the Rouslers' travelling army of support and confirmed: “They never cease to amaze me. Peterborough gave the gate at 391 but we must have taken between 230 to 250 supporters.

“I hope we gave them plenty to smile about. They are our 12th man and we shook hands with most of them after the game and mingled in the bar afterwards."

Kelly also revealed he’d abandoned plans to bring in a former Football League striker and said: “Richard Gregory is recovering from injury much quicker than we expected and might be in contention to play against North Leigh this Saturday."

Kelly also drafted under-18 striker Matt Higgins into the squad at Peterborough and insisted: “He has great potential and should become a regular fixture in the squad."
