Old Hill captain Nathan Round says he will be focused purely on getting the win as his side bid to seal promotion to the Birmingham Premier League this Saturday.

And the skipper believes the players will go into the final day full of confidence, despite defeat to Leamington Spa last weekend blowing the Division One promotion race wide open.

Four teams could grab second place and though Round’s men are still in the driving seat, they now lead third placed Wombourne by just one point. Bromsgrove are three points back in fourth with Leamington a further three behind.

It means Old Hill go into Saturday’s game at relegation-threatened Stratford-upon-Avon needing the maximum 24 points to ensure promotion and Round will tell his side to concentrate on their own game, rather than worry about what is happening elsewhere.

He said: “There are so many variables to throw in. The toss suddenly takes on even more importance and the weather forecast isn’t looking great.

“All we can do is concentrate on what we are doing, anything else that happens is out of our control.

“It’s still in our own hands and if we get the 24 points we will be promoted.

“Stratford need the points too so in all likelihood we will be batting first and then need to bowl them out.

“That may suit us based on our current form.”

Old Hill have been boosted by the news Worcestershire’s Richard Jones will be available for Saturday’s game.

Round says players were not too down-hearted after last weekend’s loss and he expects his side to be fully firing.

Batting first, Old Hill were bowled out for 240 but a disappointing bowling display saw the visitors claim a five wicket win.

Round added: “We scored enough runs we just didn’t bowl well enough, particularly well at the start of the innings.

“But nobody had their heads down after the game.”
