BOSS Gary Hackett thinks it's only a matter of time before his Glassboys dish out a real beating.

Stourbridge had to settled with successive stalemates as they drew 0-0 with Alvechurch on Tuesday night following last Saturday's goalless draw against St Ives.

It means misfiring Stour have also drawn a blank in their last two games in the absence of star striker Luke Benbow.

However, Hackett believes goals are on the horizon for his side after a host of encouraging displays.

He said: "Both games were very frustrating because we did everything but put the ball in the back of the net.

"Saturday was particularly difficult on a very narrow pitch that was in a poor condition. We struggled to get our passing game going but still deserved the win.

"Tuesday was all about poor finishing and a bit of luck on their part.

"Our build up play is very encouraging and the performances have been good even though we haven't picked up the wins.

"Very soon someone is going to really cop it from us. We just need to start taking our chances. I'd be more worried if we weren't creating the opportunities."

Stour will again be looking to pick up another FA Cup victory when they host Leamington in the second qualifying round at the War Memorial Ground this Saturday.

Hackett is hoping both Benbow and winger Greg Mills will be fit to feature after injury.

He said: "We have had some really good tussles with Leamington over the years and I'm sure that Saturday will be no different.

"It's a very attractive cup tie and one we are looking forward to. We'd love to have another good run in the competition but we will have to be at our very best on Saturday."
