Mole relaxed ahead of Vase tie
10:01am Thursday 17th October 2013 in Sport
IT may be Causeway United’s biggest game of the season on Saturday but boss Andy Mole seemed a very relaxed man ahead of the FA Vase tie with Earlswood Town.
Perched nicely in sixth place in the Baker Joiner Midland Alliance, United will start favourites to beat the Midland Combination Premier outfit.
While most managers would be intent on spying missions for possible cup opponents, Mole is taking a far more laid back approach instead contenting himself with concerns about his own team.
He said: “It’s a very winnable game but certainly not one we will take lightly. But to be honest I haven’t had them watched, I just know they are mid-table in the Combination.”
Causeway bounced back well last Saturday with goals from Alex Cowley, Johvan Blake-Walker and Jack Pearlman inspiring a routine 3-1 win over Shepshed.
Cowley though is suspended for the Vase game, played at Bromsgrove Sporting’s Victoria Ground, as is Sam Beasley.
Skipper Matt Aston is unavailable as he is attending a wedding while Aaron Lloyd (cracked ribs) and Danny Scarr (back) are both injury doubts.
“I would probably like to not risk Aaron if I can help it,” said Mole, who took Causeway to their best performance in the competition, a place in the last 16. “We have two big games coming up against Wulfrunians and Tividale on successive Saturdays.
“We didn’t play great to be honest against Shepshed but we did enough. One or two of the lads seemed a little tired after the exertions of the game at Leamington in midweek and maybe one or two disappeared slight but there were also some good performances.
“We’ve had quite a good month but to be in with a push we need another, and another. As far as the league goes it’s important we beat the teams above us.”
