City look to seal a vital win

Craig Gibbons 17th Nov, 2018

WORCESTER City head to Highgate United this afternoon as they look to get back to winning ways in the Midland Premier.

The Blue & Whites have already got the better of the Shirley-based outfit once this season, walking away with a 4-1 victory at the Coppice Ground in the League Cup on November 7.

John Snape’s men came from 1-0 down at the break to secure a resounding win, thanks to goals from George Forsyth, Liam Lockett, Jordan Harrison and Cameron Walker.

The City boss will be hoping for more of the same this weekend as his side goes in search of a first league win since late October – a 3-0 demolition of leaders Ilkeston Town at the Victoria Ground.

The Blue & Whites head into the Highgate clash on the back of a frustrating 1-1 home draw with fourth-bottom Loughborough University.

Joshua Willis’ 45th-minute strike looked as though it would be enough to give City the three points, only for Christian Eneremadu to salvage a point for the Scholars in the 88th minute.

The disappointing stalemate dropped City to fifth in the table – eight points off leaders Ilkeston after 16 games.

Following the trip to Highgate, City are on the road once again on Tuesday (7.45pm) when they travel to Derbyshire outfit Long Eaton United.

The two sides met in the FA Vase in October when City prevailed 2-1 at the Victoria Ground courtesy of a Tyler Weir double.

Meanwhile, strikers Joe Bates and Kyonn Evans have departed City on dual registration terms with Bishops Cleeve and Malvern Town respectively in a bid to gain more game time.
