DUDLEY Town will go into this weekend's big FA Cup tie against Market Drayton in a very positive frame of mind, according to chairman Steve Austin.

He is pleased with the club's start to the season despite them yet registering a win. He has also praise the attitude of the players as the team looks to continue to progress.

Manager Nigel Kirkham's side will now go into Saturday's cup contest knowing a win would hand them a game against neighbours Stourbridge in the next round.

Austin said: "We are going into the Market Drayton game on a positive note because of how well we have done early in the season.

"I am really pleased with how we have competed and how we have shown progress in every game we have played.

"The atmosphere and enthusiasm around the squad is brilliant. We can only get better as the season goes on."

Saturday's game against Pegasus Juniors had to be postponed after the hot water at the Dell Stadium failed.

They then lost 2-1 away at Gornal Athletic on Monday.

The Robins will be back in league action when they go head-to-head against rivals Dudley Sports on Tuesday, September 9.
