City youngsters could be given chance in FA Cup qualifier

Worcester Editorial 27th Sep, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

WORCESTER City will turn their attention to the FA Cup tomorrow (Saturday) when they welcome Rugby Town to Aggborough.

The Blue and Whites see the Southern League Division One Central outfit travel to their temporary home for the second year in succession after playing Town in the FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round last season.

This time out the pair meet in the 2nd Qualifying Round and Worcester will be looking to knock-out their Midlands rivals once more – after they secured a 2-0 victory at the second time of asking 12 months ago.

Carl Heeley’s men have lost their last two games away to Stockport and AFC Fylde, 2-0 and 4-0 respectively, but return to Aggborough hoping for a safe passage to the next round.

Some of the youngster’s and fringe players could get a chance to shine with Heeley’s side playing Boston United just three days later.

Tristian Dunkley, Connor Gudger, David McDermott and Nick Wright will all be hoping for a chance to impress after their summer arrivals.

Rugby find themselves in 13th place in their league, having won three, drawn two and lost four of their opening nine games. Dave Stringer’s men needed a replay and extra-time to beat Chasetown 3-1 to make it this far.
