BROMSGROVE Sporting players have been told to cut out basic errors after being held to a replay by Rocester on Saturday in the FA Cup.

A crowd in excess of 600 packed into the Victoria Ground making it the biggest FA Cup attendance of the round.

Sporting boss Paul Smith said: "We were by far the better side, especially in the second half. But if you make mistakes, you risk being punished.

"We also have to be better in front of goal. We hit the crossbar and the post but didn't take our chances. It's all down to fine margins."

Wade Malley and Robbie Bunn twice put Sporting in front, but Rocester were quick to respond on both occasions through Oliver Roome and Scott Wesson.

Sporting were due to replay at Rocester on Tuesday night, but busy boss Smith is already looking ahead to the weekend when his side travel to Leicestershire side Quorn for a Midland League Premier Division fixture.

Smith was scheduled to run the rule over Quorn in their FA Cup replay with Retford on Wednesday night and said: "It didn't help that we were missing five keys players."

Duane Courtney, Jordan Jones and Ahmed Ali were all unavailable while Aaron Roberts is currently suspended.

Summer signing Joe Ward is also out, sidelined with a back problem.

Smith added: "It's not ideal as they're all big players for us, but it shows me just how strong the squad is this season.

"You have to accept at this level of football, you will have unavailabilities - but we have the squad to cope with this."
