"IF Sav goes I'll wrap it up and go home," said Studley boss Kevin Rowlands after Alvechurch put in a seven-day approach for Bees striker Anthony Savery.

He added: "We lost Craig Pountney and James Beauchamp to Stratford earlier this season and obviously from their point of view they see Stratford as a potentially a big club.

"But if Sav joins Alvechurch I'll be absolutely amazed - it would be just a sidestep."

The Bees frontline was again without luck on Saturday as chances went begging at home to Alliance high-flyers Chasetown.

Rob Simcox gave the visitors a 30th minute lead but Savery himself slotted home from the penalty spot to put the Bees back into the game on 77 minutes.

But Lee Bullimore ground out the result for Chastown with their second goal on 80 minutes.

Rowlands said: "I'm disappointed. We had a few chances but I think they had just three all game and scored twice.

"We should have had a penalty when Andy Johnson was flattened but the Chasetown keeper but the referee didn't think it was so there's no point persuing it."

Defender Jason Dyer fresh from Rushall Olympic impressed the Bees boss but both Russell Dodds and Richard Kavanagh could be struggling for the next few games.

Jamie Bayley could also be back at the Beehive after a fractured cheekbone. The striker played for Feckenham Reserves the past couple of weeks and came through unscathed.
