HIGH-FLYING Walsall Wood will visit the Victoria Ground this afternoon as Worcester City prepare for their first game in two weeks.
The Blue and Whites resume their Midland Premier Division campaign on Saturday against a Walsall Wood side four points behind leaders Ilkeston Town.
Today’s clash will be City’s first taste of action since the 2-0 win at Coventry United on December 29.
John Snape’s men sit ninth in the table, 14 points from the summit, and looking to build a run of form to get back into contention for promotion this season.
Wood will come up against a familiar face in Callum McFarlane, who has joined City from the title-chasers. The 6ft 5ins centre-half has previously played for Cheltenham Town, Stourbridge and Stafford Rangers and was in the squad for the Coventry United clash.
Efforts to bring the club back to Worcester were high on the agenda when members of the club’s board met with representatives of the Supporters Trust last Thursday (January 3).
“The discussions were positive and productive as both parties continue to work together in unison towards the objective of bringing the football club home,” a club spokesman said.
“Transparency and communication are paramount to Worcester City. We will continue to provide updates on our progress as they materialise.”
Saturday’s game kicks off at 3pm.
City will face Studley on Tuesday in a rescheduled League Cup tie. Though City will be the ‘home’ side, the match will be played at Studley’s Beehive.
Worcester have also rearranged their league fixture away to Loughborough University for Saturday, February 9.
