REDDITCH United are building up for "10 cup finals" in their Southern League Premier Division Central promotion push.

The Reds had a weekend off following their 1-0 win at Berkhamsted at the Valley Stadium on February 17.

But now fellow promotion chasers Mickleover visit Redditch on Saturday (3pm) following last night's trip to Leiston.

United manager Matt Clarke has already seen his in-form team knocked off the top courtesy of Needham Market's games in hand.

But he declared: "We said before in the dressing room we don't care what Telford, Stamford, Leamington, Mickleover or Needham do.

"We can only control what we're doing and we're doing alright at the minute. Long may that continue.

"Hopefully we can put our best XI out on Saturday and try to get the three points which will again be huge for us."

Clarke continued: "There are 10 games left and 10 cup finals. They are all huge.

"To be sitting on 60 points after 30 games, that's two points per game and that's incredible. You win things with that ratio.

"But we've got 10 really tough games now. We play the top seven I think in those and there's no breaks.

"But they are all playing each other too so everyone will take points off everybody else.

"The next home game will be really tough. Mickleover probably aren't where they were hoping to be from a few months back.

"Hopefully their away form continues not to be great because at home they are such a good, talented side."

The week off gave the Reds a chance for players to rest and reset after a tough period with skipper Brad Burton getting vital minutes on his return against struggling Berkhamsted.

Meanwhile, neighbours Alvechurch have moved into mid-table in Premier Division Central with a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions, including Saturday's 2-2 league draw at play-off hopefuls Leiston.

Jamar Loza fired the hosts ahead on two minutes before Church levelled through Archie Crowther on 23 minutes.

Ross Crane regained the lead for Leiston nine minutes from time only for Dylan Hadley to equalise again late on.

Church now have two home games coming up at Lye Meadow against two big West Midlands sides on the non-league scene in AFC Telford United on Saturday (3pm) and Halesowen Town on Tuesday (7.45pm) with larger-than-average crowds expected.
