City aiming to claim home hat-trick

Worcester Editorial 12th Sep, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

WORCESTER City will be aiming to win three home games on the spin for the first time in more than two years when they welcome league-leaders Chorley to Aggborough tomorrow (Saturday).

Following 2-1 victories over North Ferriby United and Lowestoft Town, City play host to The Magpies hoping to clinch a hat-trick of home successes for the first time since their opening three fixtures at St George’s Lane in the 2012/13 season.

Carl Heeley’s men climbed to 13th in the Vanarama Conference North with the victory over Lowestoft and Sean Geddes will be hoping to build on his fine start to his Worcester career after he bagged a debut goal.

Daniel Nti will also be looking to continue his goal-scoring start after grabbing his third of the season in the win, but there is a slight concern over Graham Hutchison who hobbled off mid-way through the second-half with a hip injury.

Meanwhile, the newly-promoted Lancashire side have made an impressive start to life in the Conference North and currently sit top of the table after three straight wins over Brackley Town, Tamworth and North Ferriby.

Garry Flitcroft’s men have only lost one of their first eight encounters and will be looking to extend their lead at the summit with victory over the Blue and Whites.

City boss Heeley said: “There’s no easy games in this league but we’re starting to get a little bit of momentum and belief and if we can just keep hitting the target on a regular basis we can be a real force to be reckoned with.”

A live blog will be available on the website tomorrow.
