GORNAL have their sights firmly set on promotion despite boss Matt Fisher believing the top spot is out of his team’s reach.

The Peacocks haven’t played a match since February after their tie away at Kington Town was postponed due to the bad weather last weekend.

But Fisher’s side – who are currently sat third in the West Midlands Division One table – were due to be back in action against Bustleholme in the league cup on Tuesday night before hosting Newport Town this Saturday.

The manager said: “We’re really looking forward to getting back out there and playing again. It’s frustrating for us all, but we’re all in the same boat.

“We can’t expect games to be called off, the players need to be ready to go. I believe this squad are ready. They all play Sunday football, as well as socially with their mates, so I don’t think they’ll need time to get firing again.

“Having the game off on Saturday did give me the chance to watch some of our rivals which was useful. I went down to Darlaston to watch them in their loss to a good Tipton Town side, who were very impressive.

“I think Wem have won the league now. I can’t see anyone catching them, but the other promotion position is up for grabs for four or five teams.

“That has to be where our aim lies for the rest of the season.

“We have a squad of players more than capable of getting us there and as long as we play like I know we can and capitalise on our opponents dropping points, we have to believe that we are good enough to go up.”
