Non-League Preview: Foley Meir can move five points clear of the chasing pack


After the postponement of their game on Wednesday against Eastwood Hanley, Foley Meir can move five points clear at the top of the Staffordshire County League when they host Wolstanton United.

Foley Meir’s manager Kieran Mear was left frustrated after the match was called off at the last minute. “For the opposition not to have enough players was frustrating to say the least,” he said. “It may have helped us resting a few niggles, the players wanted to keep up their momentum from Saturday’s victory” said Mear.

Wolstanton sit eighth in the league after a slow restart to their league campaign. With one draw and two defeats, Mear is expecting a tough game. “With a Wolstanton team regardless of manger or players you know it’s going to be a strong physical team,” said Mear. “We won’t be taking their recent form for granted for sure we expect a tough game”.

Mear also waded in on the title race taking shape in the League with five clubs separated by five points. “All five clubs can still win and it’s really exciting to see how the table will end up”. Mear also spoke about the mood in the camp since they returned to competitive football. “Since the restart there has been a real buzz around the squad, I tell the lads most match days each game until the end of the season is a cup final”.

Since the restart Foley Meir have only conceded once in the league, scoring seven goals. While Wolstanton have only scored once since the restart in the league, conceding two goals.
