TIVIDALE boss Dave King says his players won't be getting carried away after topping the West Midlands Premier League table.

Dale are two points clear of second-placed Wolverhampton Sporting despite playing two games more.

Tivi saw last weekend's clash with Black Country Rangers called off due to snowfall and will now go to Ellesmere Rangers this Saturday looking to maintain their fine form.

King said: "I don't think being top of the table will bring any pressure because we're not expected to be there.

"After two relegations, the expectation wasn't to be where we are just yet. We do have a strong group of lads that work really hard for each other so hopefully we can enjoy it.

"We just take it game-by-game and because we are barely half way into the season. There is so much football to be played."

Tividale will be without Chris Bladen (knee) and the absent Curtis Cocking for the Ellesmere clash.

Liam Smith should be available after rejecting an approach from Team Dudley.

King says no new arrivals are imminent at the Beeches due to how well the squad have performed this season so far.

"I really do want to keep this squad together," added the boss. "They are doing really well and I want to be loyal to them.

"We nearly have a clean bill of heath and plenty of options to choose from."
