YELTZ boss John Hill admits his side with have to find their ruthless streak if they're to have any joy against high-flying rivals Stourbridge this Saturday.

Halesowen recovered from last Saturday's disappointing 5-1 home defeat against Workington by picking up a 1-1 draw at Barwell on Tuesday night.

Jack Kelly's late free-kick earned a point for Hill's men after they had gone behind in the game despite the hosts being reduced to ten men in the first half.

Alex Woodhouse's second yellow evened things up before the end and Hales had to settled for a stalemate.

However, they still sit bottom of the Northern Premier League going into this weekend's derby duel at the War Memorial Ground and their manager knows exactly what they need to improve ahead of the weekend.

He said: "It was the story of our season again against Workington. We were winning 1-0 and have missed a one-on-one and had a penalty shout turned down. We could have been 3-0 up before they have laid a glove on us.

"That said, what happened after that and the way we lost the game is not acceptable and I take the responsibility and hold my hands up for that as the manager.

"But again we have had three gilt-edged chances at Barwell and not put them away. It's something we need to put right.

"We really do need to start taking our chances and will have to do that Saturday.

"Stourbridge are a good side and one of the favourites to to win the league this season and are again having another run in the FA Cup. We really will be up against it because there is no doubt that we're behind them at the moment, both on and off the field.

"We are going to have to roll our sleeves up because we want to go there and put on a good performance for our supporters and will be doing our best to make it happen."

Cameron Steele remains a doubt ahead of the weekend but Hill did boost his options last week with the arrival of Shrewsbury Town attacker John McAtee on loan.
