The Pics come into this game unbeaten in four, with four points from their last two games, but Liam King wants his charges to demonstrate the ability he believes they have. "The lads are all ready to get back on the pitch and hopefully progress to the next round of the FA Cup. After our First Round tie, we hope we can take the same standard of performance into this round. It will be a tough tie against a good side, so we are expecting a really tough game. We have a few lads with slight niggles but Steve (Rands, physio) will be working hard to get them right for weekend."
Managed by former Redditch United, Hednesford Town & Solihull Moors’ manager Liam McDonald, Rushall sit second in the league, a point behind Trinity’s former foes Hednesford Town. After eight games, the Pics have won five, drawn two and lost one in the league. At home they have scored over twenty goals in all competitions and are currently undefeated on home turf.
With the BetVictor Northern Premier and BetVictor Southern Central leagues on a par with each other and current league positions, Trinity travel as underdogs, and as such need as many of our fantastic supporters as possible to make the journey to the Midlands.
The two sides are no strangers, having met at this stage of the FA Cup six years ago. Despite Trinity securing passage through to the Third Qualifying Round with a 2-0 victory, it was Rushall who progressed, an administration error costing the Holy Blues.
