BEWDLEY Town boss Phil Mullen insists his side must keep the faith after starting the season with four straight defeats.

After bowing out of the FA Cup on Saturday to Bromsgrove Sporting, Bewdley were then beaten 2-1 by Wednesfield this week to leave themselves pointless and propping up the West Midland League Premier Division along with Cradley Town.

The experienced Mullen admitted: "Things can only get better! I'd like to make some excuses, but in truth, we've made a poor start and we certainly need to improve.

"It doesn't matter whether you've been in management for one year or 20, it's always a disappointment when it doesn't happen for you.

"All I can say, is that everyone is working extremely hard to try and turn things around".

Bewdley host Wolves Casuals this Saturday at Ribbesford Meadow, with Casuals expected to be one of the major title contenders this term under former Sporting Khalsa manager Mark Holdcroft.

Mullen added: "There could be a couple of new faces coming into the squad to face Casuals, but I won't know for sure until we have a roll-call on Thursday night. We just have to stick together at the moment and hope we can get a win from somewhere".
