KENT V HEATHENS, PREVIEW

Sunday July 30, 2017
CRADLEY boss Will Pottinger has challenged his side to boost their play-off push with at least a point at Kent on Monday (6.30).

The Motor Market Heathens' top four ambitions are still hanging in the balance heading into their final six regular season fixtures.

Pottinger knows adding to their tally at Central Park would give them a major boost - and he is keen to come away with a result.

Said Pottinger: "We know it's going to be a tough meeting at Kent, because it's never an easy place to go.

"We're also without Dan due to his injury, and we have no choice really but to use rider replacement before Richard Hall comes into the side next week.

"But we know we've not got many chances left away from home to get some more points on the board.

"If we can come away with a result it would give our chances of reaching the play-offs a real boost, so hopefully the boys can put in a good performance."

The Heathens operate rider replacement to cover for Dan Greenwood with Richard Hall set to come in for his debut at home to Isle of Wight at Perry Barr on Wednesday, August 9 (7.30).

Meanwhile, Kent also use rider replacement for the injured Nathan Stoneman at No.2 with Ben Morley again stepping in to guest for Luke Bowen at No.1.

KENT: Ben Morley, Nathan Stoneman R/R, Ben Hopwood, Bradley Andrews, Jack Thomas, George Hunter, Anders Rowe.
CRADLEY: Danny Ayres, Luke Harris, Dan Greenwood R/R, Joe Lawlor, Tom Perry, Conor Dwyer, Tyler Govier.
