Rockin' Robins are rattling in the goals

First published 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, but their goalkeeper saved them.”

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.

Meanwhile, Black Country Rangers continued their 100 per cent West Midlands League record when they breezed to an eighth straight win when overcoming Wolverhampton Sporting Community 3-0.

New signing Sam Agar got the ball rolling from the penalty spot.

Nick Turton then netted his first two goals for the club since arriving from Bilston Town.

The result leaves Rangers second, four points adrift of leaders Pegasus Juniors, but with two games in hand.

Rangers entertain Shifnal Town this Saturday, when manager Paul Garner hopes to brings in former Stourbridge and Wolves Casuals goalkeeper Todd Henderson.
