STOURPORT Swifts will face Hereford in the two-legged semi-final of the Polymac League Cup.

Tevin Shakespeare’s second-half strike ensured Swifts saw off Nuneaton Griff 1-0 last Thursday.

It sets up a mouth-watering double-header against Hereford, who regularly boast massive crowds of 4,000.

Swifts are set to welcome the Bulls to Walshes Meadow on Thursday, April 21, and go to Edgar Street a week later.

Stourport have a decent record against the Bulls, beating them 2-0 at the start of the season in the Midlands Premier, but lost 6-0 in Hereford.

Manager Mark Phillips said: “We played well in the first game against Hereford but did lose heavily at their place.

“But it’s all about the experience for our young players and I am sure they will bring a few fans to our ground.”

Swifts drew 0-0 with high-flying Sporting Khalsa on Saturday but Phillips felt his side could have come away with all three points. He said: “We were very resilient in the first half and played a lot of good stuff in the second.

“We made a lot of chances throughout the game and I was disappointed we didn’t get all three points.”

Swifts face two away games over the Bank Holiday weekend.

They go to Coventry Sphinx on Saturday and visit Highgated United on Monday (both 3pm ko).
