MATT Clarke is taking heart from Halesowen Town's performances against the league's top sides this season ahead of their trip to sixth-placed Ashton United.

The Yeltz assistant manager wants his players to reproduce the form that has seen them pick up wins against Grantham, Stourbridge and Hednesford and draws with the likes of Shaw Lane and Warrington.

Halesowen's home clash with Nantwich was called off last Saturday due to the heavy snowfall that hit the region, but they now go to Ashton this Saturday looking for more points to lift them away from the Northern Premier League dropzone.

Clarke said: "We just want to play games and keep trying to pick up more points.

"We've been able to do some indoor training this week to help us prepare and that went really well.

"It's going to be another really tough game for us, like most are when you're down at the bottom, but our record against the top six or seven sides this season has been really good.

"We can go there with a bit of confidence and look to get another positive result.

"We've improved the squad a little and are looking forward to the game."

The Yeltz added Redditch forward Spencer Weir-Daly last week and have now brought experienced defender Exodus Geohaghon to the The Grove.

The 32-year-old commanding centre back includes Bromsgrove Rovers, Redditch United, Kidderminster Harriers, Stourbridge and Solihull Moors among his former clubs as is in contention for the weekend.

Clarke added: "Exodus will bring a lot of experience at the back and more leadership as well.

"I've know him for a long time and used to play with him so we're pleased to get him in.

"Both he and Spencer will bring more experience and know-how to the team."

Clarke also said that he and manager John Hill are also looking to add an experienced centre midfielder to the squad before the weekend.

The Yeltz have no major injury concerns after goalkeeper Dan Platt has shaken off a knock in time for the Ashton showdown.
