VS boss in plea for semi support; FOOTBALL.

VS RUGBY boss Martin Sockett has urged fans to come to Butlin Road tonight and support VS Rugby in their bid to reach the Midland Floodlit Cup final (7.45pm).

Buoyed by Saturday's 2-0 victory at Sutton Coldfield Town, VS have a fully-fit squad for their semi-final showdown with Corby Town apart from the unavailable Darren Beckett. Chris Evans returns after a knee injury.

''This is the semi-final and we want as many supporters as possible to come and back the team,'' said VS boss Sockett.

''The match will be decided by extra-time and penalties if necessary so there will be a winner on the night.

''It's the Dr Martens Northern Division taking on the Dr Martens Southern and Corby are in a similar position to us so we have everything to play for.''

VS Rugby (from): Wood, Veitch, Green, Williams, Murphy, Sullivan, Wiseman, O'Brien, Evans, Johnson, Warner, Agar, Shea, Hamer, Machin, Lenton, John.
