Football: Adders have extra bite; NON-LEAGUE NEWS.
OLDBURY United's Martin Thomas believes Atherstone will take all the beating in this season's Midland Alliance title race.
Joint Oldbury boss Thomas watched his side scrape a 2-2 draw with early season pace-setters Adders and admitted: "They were the better side, no doubt about that.
"We were happy with the point - they weren't! We'd played Barwell off the park on Saturday, battered them but then lost out to an 88th minute penalty and got nothing.
"Atherstone are the best side I've seen. They've got two quality strikers in Roy Dunckley and Nathan Jones, who will always score goals.
"I've no doubt that Atherstone will get stronger and better as the season continues. The team that finishes above Atherstone will be the one that wins the league."
Oldbury are chasing Worcester City Academy striker Ollie Clarke who was previously on Cradley Town's books.
They can also welcome back Polish brothers Bart and Jakob Smalock who have been away on wedding duty.
Chris Porter is also ready to return after serving a three-match ban.
