Brakes face Baggies test

I've just been down to the New Windmill Ground where a number of volunteers were hard at work preparing for tomorrow's game against West Bromwich Albion. The groundsman was forking the turf and the players' shirts were drying in the breeze.

Even though Brakes beat Birmingham City 3-2 in the last round of the Birmingham Senior Cup, the Baggies could well prove to be a tougher test. Brakes have slipped out of the play off places in the Evostik Southern Premier League after some recent defeats.

I was able to have a look in the new hospitality suite. I was a bit sceptical when it first arrived, but the refurbishment work has been first class and it gives an excellent view of the pitch.
