Kevin Wilson took heart from Ilkeston FC’s return to action this week as he saw his side romp to a comfortable win in the Derbyshire Senior Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night.

The 7-0 win over Heanor Town was the first time manager Wilson had been able to see his charges in action for over a fortnight following the recent freezing weather, with the game a vital warm-up for the visit of Stafford Rangers to the New Manor Ground this weekend.

And although there were still aspects of the Robins’ game Wilson was unhappy with, he felt it was an important run-out.
