Halesowen Town manager, Morell Maison, has urged supporters to turn out in force to help with their push for the BGB Premier Division title.

The Yeltz boss is now setting his sights on the top spot rather than settling for a place in the play-offs after seeing their championship rivals continue to stutter.

Halesowen are currently third in the league behind leaders Team Bath and Kings Lynn, who they drew 1-1 with away to last weekend.

The Yeltz are now preparing for the visit of Banbury United to the Grove on Saturday (3pm kick-off) with the boss hoping for a bumper crowd.

Maison said: "The crowd have a massive part to play at home because they are our twelfth man and they really do give the players that extra push.

"We went to Kings Lynn on Saturday and played in front of 1,400 but the 600 we had at home against Bashley were far louder.

"On that day they were tremendous and the players certainly responded to that.

"There is a real buzz on the terraces and around the town so we will be looking to keep that going and hopefully see the home crowds keep increasing.

"I'm confident we are in a championship race now rather than a play-off one which really excites me and I have a real feeling it will go right down to the wire."

Maison is also hopeful that striker Zema Abbey could make a return to action this weekend.

The former Cambridge United and Norwich City man has been laid low with a hamstring injury and missed the trip to Kings Lynn.

Maison said: "We are hopeful Zema will be back for Saturday.

"He has been undergoing extensive treatment from the Milton Keynes Dons physio and the signs are good.

"It would be a massive boost for us because he gives a real presence up-front and gets the best out of our wingers.

"We really missed him against Kings Lynn and I think he was the difference between us winning and drawing that match."

Nick Amos is also set to comeback into contention after also missing last weekend's top-of-the-table clash through illness.

One player who remains an injury doubt for the Banbury game is Dean Brennan.

Causeway United will be back at the War Memorial Ground this Saturday when they entertain Alvechurch in the Midland Alliance.

United sit fourth in the table after playing out a hard-fought 0-0 with top-of-the-table Atherstone at Amblecote last weekend.

Alvechurch currently lie in eighth position but will be looking for revenge after Causeway knocked them out of the FA Vase earlier in the season.

Brierley Hill and Withymoor cruised to a 4-1 victory over Bustleholme on Saturday thanks to goals from Mitch Orford, Lee Booth (2) and Carl Martin.

The win concluded a great week for Tony Gore's men who also reached the semi-final of the Worcestershire Senior Urn beating Feckenham 3-2 with a last-minute goal from Booth.

This Saturday they travel to Wednesfield (3pm kick-off).
