Match Preview: Worcester City (H)

Hednesford Town will be looking to build on Saturday’s victory over Tamworth when Worcester City visit Keys Park for this re-arranged game which originally fell victim to the weather on Easter Monday.

After earning a precious three points at the weekend, a result that saw Frank Sinclair’s side come from behind to secure a 2-1 triumph, the Pitmen will be looking to record back-to-back league victories for only the second time this season.

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 help the Pitmen pick up all three points.

Although they were defeated on Saturday, our visitors this evening had strung together a couple of good results of late which has seen them edge further clear of danger – with them sitting some four points above the drop zone.

Manager Frank Sinclair is hoping to build on that last victory over Tamworth when Worcester visit Keys Park for the game which kicks off at 7.45pm. He said:

“The performance and result from Saturday give us real confidence and more importantly keep us alive.

“We knew before the game that we needed the three points and it hasn’t changed things, we still need four wins to give ourselves a chance. What we need to do now is not take our foot off the pedal.”

Andy Todd will once again be missing for the Pitmen while Tom Thorley is out for the rest of the season due to an ongoing injury problem.

The Pitmen will also be without defender Jack Fitzwater who was recalled by West Bromwich Albion on Monday in order to play an U21 game for the Baggies that evening. It is hoped that he will be able to link back up with the club later in the week.
