JOINT manager Matt Gardiner has urged his side to start with the same tempo they showed in their second half performance against Tamworth when they take on Lowestoft Town tomorrow.
Worcester City were trailing 2-0 at half time to the Lambs but came out in the second 45 a rejuvenated side, pulling a goal back through Ryan Rowe, and Gardiner wants to see more of that fight against Town.
Lowestoft have made a strong start to their 2015/16 campaign with an impressive 3-0 win at home to AFC Telford United followed by a 1-0 win on the road at Alfreton Town.
City, meanwhile, are yet to pick up a win, having drawn 1-1 at Gainsborough Trinity on the opening day, followed by a 2-1 defeat against Tamworth.
Worcester will be without Kyle Haynes, who was released by the club earlier this week, and Tyler Weir, who is recovering from a nasty head injury he suffered in midweek.
Joint manager Gardiner said: “They (Lowestoft) are on a roll. They had a good result against Alfreton and against Telford.
“With the greatest of respect to Lowestoft they will come here and be confident but if we start with the tempo it is about us really, I can’t worry about what they do or don’t do.
“All Carl (Heeley) and I have to worry about is to get us ready and make sure we start right tomorrow.”
