Kidd set for debut

BANBURY United boss Edwin Stein is looking forward to seeing his players face up to Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Nuneaton in Tuesday’s Birmingham Senior Cup tie.

Despite the freezing fog, the game goes ahead and United will field their eighth keeper of the campaign. Lewis Kidd has signed on-loan from Luton Town as Kwame Fordah is unavailable for the next five games so the 21-year-old is set to deputise.

The Puritans entertain Nuneaton, who were thumped 6-1 at Wrexham on Saturday, in Tuesday’s second round tie at Spencer Stadium, where Stein is hoping his side can follow up Saturday’s excellent 3-1 victory over Bashley.

Stein said: “Nuneaton won’t fancy coming down here. They’re bottom of the Conference and I’m sure will be looking for a win in any competition so I think they will put out a strong side.”
