FOOTBALL: Now Bedworth Aim to Make Their Vital Point
Byline: JOHN HARRIS
FOUR points from the Easter programme all but ended any fears of relegation for Bedworth United.
And they can finally put them to rest tomorrow with a Western Division point at home to Redditch United.
Ian Drewitt's men have two games to gain the point they need - they finish at Taunton Town tomorrow week - but if if they were to lose both of their games they would be unlikely to finish in the bottom two as the teams below them would have have to show a dramatic upturn in form.
But Drewitt does not want to take that risk and he sees tomorrow as a more than winnable game against a Redditch side who have had an excellent season.
A 2-1 victory over arch-rivals Atherstone last Saturday followed by a draw at Solihull on Easter Monday has left the Greenbacks full of confidence.
Goalkeeper Richard Williams is suspended so Macaulay Iyayi is set to come in and Jamie Hood is available for selection.
Drewitt said: "It is a game I can see us getting at least a point from and we are more than capable of winning it.
"The last two games have done the lads the world of good and we showed in the second at Solihull how we can play."
THERE are two big events at Butlin Road this weekend.
Rugby United host Cinderford Town in their final home Western Division match of the season tomorrow and, 24 hours later, the club are holding a 20-year reunion for the FA Vase-winning squad of 1983.
Skipper Craig Herbert might return to face Cinderford as Rugby aim to round off a highly-successful home season with their third straight win.
Herbert has missed the last few games with a hamstring injury but he might make the bench tomorrow. Fellow defender Adam Hart is back after missing Monday's 0-0 draw at Rocester through work commitments while Dave Pearson has recovered from the illness which kept him out of Monday's trip.
Meanwhile, the majority of the survivors from the VS Rugby squad and management team will be at Butlin Road on Sunday. …
