STOURBRIDGE will look to get their promotion push back on track when they welcome Biggleswade Town this weekend.

The Glassboys have fallen off the pace of Southern League Central leaders Kettering after a three-game losing run.

They lost 1-0 at lowly Lowestoft last Saturday following previous defeats against Kettering and Hitchin at the end of January.

Second-placed Stour now sit five points off Kettering and have played two games more.

Boss Gary Hackett isn't panicking and is just determined to hit back as soon as possible.

He said: "I stated before that we'd always hit a blip at some stage and that's what we've had recently.

"We had a fantastic run and got ourselves into a really good position but now a few players are maybe struggling for a little confidence suddenly, and that happens in football. It has only been fine margins but it has still set us back.

"The important thing now is how quickly we come out of it. We have to make sure it doesn't last too long.

"If you'd have offered been offered this position at the start of the season you'd have snapped their hand off.

"We've trained really well this week and I know the players are determined to put in a good performance this weekend in front of our home fans.

"They have been fantastic for us this season and I know they will be right behind us again."

Meanwhile, Hackett insists Tom Tonks is firmly in his plans despite the midfielder being left out of the last two games.

"Tom has done fantastically well to overcome his injury this season and was just disappointed to be left out," said the boss.

"Everyone who knows him knows how hard he tries out on the football pitch but he's also a player that wears his heart on his sleeve and maybe says a few things he shouldn't at the time.

"He just needs to keep working hard.

"If I fell out with everyone that I had a wrong word or two with over the years then I'd have no players to play for me. I understand because I was similar when I was a player."

Stourbridge boosted their defensive options by bringing Wolves player Aaron Hayden back to the War Memorial Ground last week.

The versatile defender has returned to Amblecote until the end of the current campaign.

The 22-year-old clocked up 45 appearances and scored seven times during his previous two loan stints with the Glassboys.

Hackett added: "It felt like a long month while we waited to sort it but we're delighted to get Aaron back.

"We had meeting at Wolves and had to be really patient.

"It may have been easier to to just sign someone else but we told him we'd maintain our interest and we finally got something sorted."
