Spirit seeing Stourbridge to the end.

GARY Hackett has saluted Stourbridge's team spirit for responding to the toughest part of the season by putting together their best run of the campaign.

The Glassboys know that a victory at fourth-from-bottom Clevedon Town this afternoon will ensure their place in the British Gas Business League Premier Division for 2009-2010..

"At the crucial part of the season, we have put together a six-match unbeaten run," said manager Hackett.

"We have had to come from behind a few times which says a lot about the team spirit.

"We have rallied as a team. We've put together our best run of the season just at the right time and that says a lot about the hard work and effort that everybody has put in."

But Hackett, who had led the club to two promotions, insists there is still plenty to play for. As well as Monday's Black Country derby against Halesowen Town, there's the Birmingham Senior Cup the following week against Hednesford Town.

Stourbridge stunned Halesowen with a New Year victory and they go into the game at Amblecote as the form team..

"It's a long time since Stourbridge have had such a big derby and everyone is looking forward to it," said Hackett, a former Yeltz player himself.

"We all know Halesowen have had troubled times of late but I'm sure they will be giving it everything, just like we will." Defender Nathan Bennett could be fit for Monday after a calf problem..
