Leiston in good heart ahead of Alvechurch test

After beating Lowestoft Town in the Suffolk Premier Cup quarter-finals and gaining a deserved point at AFC Rushden & Diamonds last weekend, the Blues are in good spirits going into the match against a team who are fifth in the Southern League Central Premier table.

The Worcestershire side has amassed 52 points from 29 matches so far and and unbeaten in their last seven league games.

Leiston have some tough games coming up after the weekend’s game, visiting Stourbridge and Biggleswade Town in their next two matches.

“The first half was very even against Rushden last Saturday but we dominated the second period,” Leiston boss Stuart Boardley said during the week.

“We just could not score. I couldn’t fault the effort and commitment shown from the players, while I thought George Keys and Matt Rutterford were excellent which highlights the strength of squad we have at the moment.

“I think this weekend might be the first time I’ve named the same starting XI for the second game running since being the manager!”

Boardley has Tom Bullard back in the squad for the match while goalkeeper Joe Potter will come into the first team set up for the game.

Patrick Brothers (injured) and Seb Dunbar (suspended) will miss the match though.
