Fixture pile-up will be a worry
THE next few weeks are shaping up to be rather busy for Worcester City.
Following three postponements in under a month due to the weather, the calendar is slowly beginning to fill up.
It’s not quite approaching congestion — Halifax have played six games less than Worcester’s 23, while Harrogate have only played 18 league games to date — but if Histon’s visit is frozen off this weekend, it will certainly be heading that way.
Carl Heeley’s team have three consecutive mid-week fixtures coming up as a result of the games against Droylsden and Gainsborough Trinity, postponed last month, being rearranged.
A new date for the trip to Bishop’s Stortford has not been set but that will be another Tuesday night fixture.
It could wait until March although that would leave City with five away games in one month.
Losing the Histon game would mean another Monday night game — good for the nostalgic element of the last season at the Lane but bad logistically.
Striker Danny Glover said last week that he would rather have points on the board than games in hand and the current postponements are backing that theory up.
City are very much in the hunt for a play-off spot and are currently only outside the top five on goal difference from Altrincham.
The last thing they need is to have that disrupted because of elements out of their control.
