STOURPORT Swifts chalked up successive draws due to a goalless stalemate at Rocester last Saturday.

Swifts dropped to third from bottom in the Midland Football League Premier Division as Boldmere St Michael's won at Walsall Wood.

The draw followed the previous weekend's point against Long Eaton United and gives added significance to this Saturday's clash with basement boys Brocton at Walshes Meadow (3pm kick-off).

The game hands Stourport the chance to finally edge away from the dropzone if they can return to winning ways.

Boss Mark Phillips said: "I think we had the better of things against Rocester and could have won it. Their keeper has pulled of two or three really great saves to keep us out.

"Brocton is a big game for us and we'll be going for the win. It won't be easy because they're on a really good run at the moment."

Swifts have strengthened their attacking options with the arrival of Kidderminster Harriers striker Dan Sweeney on loan until the end of the season.

They will be without the injured Joe Phillips and absent Rion Francis-Mill this Saturday. Matt Fulloway could recover from illness and Alex Perry also returns.
