Match Preview: Worcester City (H)

Hednesford Town will be looking to build on Saturday’s draw at Corby Town as they continue to search for their first victory at Keys Park in 2016 when Worcester City visit on Easter Monday.

After suffering cruel stoppage time heart-break in the last home game against Stockport County the Pitmen will be hoping for a change in fortunes in this match.

It also provides Town with a chance of recording a league double over a Worcester side that were comprehensively beaten 4-1 at Aggborough earlier in the campaign.

That August afternoon saw goals from Tom Thorley, Ahmed Obeng, Sean Williams and Ben Bailey helping the Pitmen pick up all three points.

Our visitors on Monday currently find themselves just three places outside the relegation zone, some nine points ahead of us – albeit with two games in hand.

Manager Frank Sinclair was fully aware of the task that lay ahead for his side ahead of this weekend’s double header:

“We knew going into the weekend that both games were ones that we needed three points out of if we are to be realistically in with a chance of securing our place in the league for next season but we keep going again on Monday.

“Worcester City are in a position where they are looking to secure points in order to maintain their place for next season, while it is also a crucial time for us.”

Andy Todd will once again be missing for the Pitmen while Tom Thorley is expecting to be out for the rest of the season due to an ongoing injury problem. Sinclair is hoping to have defender Jack Fitzwater back for selection after he missed the trip to Corby due to an ankle injury.

The game against Worcester, which kicks off at 3pm, will be segregated with visiting supporters being housed in the Hednesford End of the ground and entering the ground through turnstiles 2A and 2B.

Home supporters will be housed in the rest of the stadium with entrance available through turnstiles 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B, 4C

Both sets of supporters will have access to a bar before and after the game.
