BATCHLEY-based Redditch Borough must hit the ground running when they return to action this Saturday as they entertain second from bottom Bloxwich Town at The Meitis in a crunch Midland League Division Two contest.

Borough spokesman Julian Workman described the clash as a 'must-win' match and insisted: "We need to be firing on all cylinders."

The following Wednesday Borough travel to take on Malvern Town Reserves as they attempt to try and reach the Evesham Hospital Cup semi-finals.

Borough's cause will be hampered as they will be missing key marksman Billy Garvey as he begins a four-match ban.
