COACHES’ CORNER: Tim Flowers Previews St Ives Town

Ahead of Saturday’s home league match vs St Ives Town (3:00 KO), manager Tim Flowers has spoken about the opposition, the squad and the support for his first game at the Victoria Ground…

“St Ives are heavy scorers and they look as though, statistically, they’ve been very good on 4G. I looked at the game in which they beat Mickleover by five the other week and they’ve got some good players. They’re strong, they’ve got a lot of physicality and size about them and their set plays are a threat.

“There’s plenty for us to think about defensively but, somewhere down the line, we’ve also got to try and hurt opposition – bringing front players in in the middle of February isn’t easy, and we’ve been working tirelessly, trying to talk to players of a decent standard but, coming with that, you have to rob the crown jewels to try and pay them – some of these lads are totally unrealistic really when you’re talking about the level they’re asking for.

“Injury-wise, we’re clear, except Conor Tee and his shoulder issue, but other than that, we’re alright. We had a group of around 18 at training yesterday, we’ve looked at a few things and prepared for the game. As I’ve said from the outset, I’m looking to change things round a little bit – we are where we are for a reason. We’ve got 11 games left now and we need to try and remedy our goalscoring output and that’s what I’ve been trying to do.

“The supporters here are renowned – from when I was a kid, Bromsgrove has always had a big football club, with a huge following that attracted big gates. To attract big gates, you’ve got to have a product on the pitch where people want to come and watch us. From now until the end of the season, if they could get behind us and also travel in numbers, that would be great.

“There was a few there at Mickleover, which was lovely to see, but if the fans could get behind the players, which I’m sure they will, it’ll be greatly appreciated. I want to play a style where we can put opponents under pressure for a little bit longer.”
