Robins keep rattling in the goals
9:26am Thursday 26th September 2013 in Football
DUDLEY Town took their tally to 40 goals in eight matches after they sent Midland Combination high-fliers Studley tumbling out of the FA Vase by a convincing 5-2 margin.
Manager Andy Wyton said: “It should have been more and could have easily won by eight or nine goals.”
Croatian striker Dreniz Bala and a Grant Joshua penalty put the Robins 2-0 within the first 10 minutes.
Rion Francis-Mills also grabbed a couple of goals before substitute Ashley Greenaway added a fifth with six minutes from time.
The Robins reward for this victory is a home tie against local rivals Cradley Town in the next round of the FA Vase on October 19.
Town return to West Midlands League action on Saturday when they travel to Sporting Khalsa.
Wyton is also waiting to see whether midfield man Brett McGilligan is ready to return after damaging his foot in pre-season.
n Dudley Sports bowed out of the FA Vase after a 3-1 home defeat to Midland Combination side Atherstone.
Sports joint-boss Tony Gore had no complaints about the outcome.
He said: “It’s our own fault we went out. “We had four or five really good chances to score in the first half and didn’t make them count.”
Dan Creaney fired the Adders in front and went onto score a second with Andy Culver providing a third before Liam Morris struck a late consolation goal for Sports.
Gore was unable to use loan striker Dan Evans because parent club Tividale didn’t want him cup-tied but he should be back for Saturday’s trip to Cradley.
