IAN Long’s Glassboys go into Saturday’s home clash with Kings Langley looking for back-to-back league wins after edging out Rushall Olympic on Monday night.

Chay Tilt’s cheeky 69th minute lob earned Stour a 2-1 win in a hard-fought game in which they had to come from behind after Rushall went into the half-time break 1-0 up.

Anthony Dwyer levelled matters in the 53rd minute before Tilt popped up to settle the issue.

It followed a 1-1 home draw with Coalville on Saturday, Dwyer bagging an equaliser from the penalty spot six minutes from time, and all bodes well for the War Memorial side, who can climb to second spot in the Southern League Premier Central Division if they can win their games in hand.

Boss Long said: “It was s good result - I thought we played well and dominated possession in the first half, but they had one shot on goal, which went in.

“They were fatigued in the second half after chasing the ball so much.

“Rushall are a very direct side, which I’m not a fan of - there’s a lot to be worked on here still, and we’re playing a different brand of football from last year. It’s not helping that we have six or seven key players missing through injury and we just need people to be a little patient.”

Long is expecting a very different kind of game against 16th-placed Kings Langley on Saturday.

He said: “They are much more of a footballing side, much like us, so it’s a different challenge - I think we’ve looked better in defence the past couple of weeks, we’re just still looking for that clean sheet as we aim to turn our games in hand into points.”

Long also handed a debut to Henry Cowans - the son of Aston Villa legend Gordon Cowans - on Tuesday, after the midfielder signed on loan from Telford.

Long added: “He did OK - he’s not played for ten weeks because of injury so it was good for him to get some game time.”

Saturday’s match kicks off at 3pm.
