City looking for first away success

Worcester Editorial 3rd Oct, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

WORCESTER City will look secure their first three points on the road this season when they travel to Gainsborough Trinity tomorrow (Saturday).

The Blue and Whites have drawn two and lost four of their opening six fixtures away from Aggborough and have failed to find

the back of the net in any of the encounters.

Daniel Nti climbed back to the top of the City scoring charts on Tuesday (September 30) with his sides only goal in their 1-1 draw against Boston, which saw Carl Heeley’s men rise back to 10th in the Conference North.

The fixture will mark the end of a sticky run of games for Worcester, who will have played the nine teams currently above them in just 12 league games so far this season.

Tristian Dunkley will definitely miss the game after he dislocated his shoulder late on in the FA Cup success over Rugby Town, with Wayne Thomas ‘touch and go’ with a back injury picked up in the same game.

Winger David McDermott will be pushing for another start after getting the nod and impressing during Tuesday’s draw with the Pilgrims.

Trinity won four of their opening six but have only secured three points just once in their last four league outings, coming from behind to beat Stalybridge Celtic 2-1 on September 20.

A late Ethan Moore penalty salvaged a 2-2 draw for Heeley’s side when the two teams met at Aggborough last season, before two goals in two minutes saw Gainsborough run out 2-1 winners in February.

Ahead of the game Heeley said: “At the moment we can’t complain (with our home form).

“We just have to turn some of the performances and the belief into when we play away from home, we start on Saturday and we have to try and build on what we do here at Aggborough.

“Sometimes it happens in football, you can’t win at home and you get results away, but at the moment it’s not going for us away from home.

“It’s not for the want of trying, it’s going to change sometime and why not Saturday.”
