- Trinity bottom of the table
- 0-1: Oates 25 mins
- 1-1: Geohaghon 54 mins
- 1-2: Oates 62 mins
- 2-2: Moore 90+5 mins
Aaron Williams looks to have been brought down by Barnes in the area but nothing given. Drama here.
City 90+5 mins: Moore sends Barnes the wrong way from the spot.
Ethan Moore is fouled by in the box and it is a penalty.
Five extra minutes to be played.
Sub. Trinity 90 mins: Bradley Barraclough on for Conner Robinson.
Thorley's free kick is cleared, Trinity break but fail to make the most of the situation.
Firm strike from Robinson is gobbled up by Veiga. Gainsborough on top now.
Sub. Trinity 80 mins: Mark Jones and Josh Lacey replace Rhys Oates and Greg Young.
Sub. City 79 mins: Ethan Moore on for Danny Glover.
Worcester are readying Ethan Moore for action.
Smith gets in a challenge to thwart Oates in the area and takes a whack for his troubles.
Smith sends over a cross from the right, Glover rises but can't get enough power in his header and the ball goes wide.
Dan Clayton's free kick is cleared by the home defence.
Sub. City 66 mins: Aaron Williams on for Richard Taundry.
Taundry is on the floor with what looks like a groin issue. He's moving very slowly and is coming off.
Thorley gets back to deny Oates the chance of a hat-trick.
Trinity 62 mins: Oates is allowed to burst through several challenges, into the box and his shot beats Veiga on the near post.
City have suddenly got the bit between their teeth.
Sub. City 59 mins: Danny Williams comes on for Nathan Rooney.
City 54 mins: Thorley's corner is headed in by Geohaghon.
Strong appeal for handball against Smon Russell in the area but City will have to settle for a corner.
Neither side able to create an opening so far in the second period.
Deeney gets in a fine block to deny Liam Davis after great work by Robinson.
Attendance is 347.
Trinity free kick finds its way into the hands of Veiga.
Shot from Oates skids int the arms of Veiga who gathers at the second attempt.
Thorley is accomplished on the ball but never looks comfortable when faced with a shot from distance.
Dominic Roma drills in a low cross, Veiga smothers.
About three minutes to go before the break. It's all gone a bit quiet here.
Geohaghon is a long throw specialist, he's even wiping the ball on a towel before taking them.
Glover tees up Thorley for a drive which he shanks well wide.
Corner from Williams for Trinity is headed away the hosts.
Not sure if Veiga has much confidence in some of his defenders, he has just raced off his line to smash the ball out of the ground.
Rooney's stinging free kick is parried away by the keeper.
Glover's shot is blocked by Barnes and the rebound from Rooney also goes to the keeper.
It's the same old story. Great possession football from the hosts but undone by silly errors.
Trinity 25 mins: City fail to clear, Exodus Geohaghon makes a right mess of controlling the ball, gifts it to Richardson and he sets up Rhys Oates for a tap in.
Nti has a go from around 30 yards. That's closer to the car park.
City probing but finding Trinity with men behind the ball.
City much the better side and controlling possession without an end product.
Ellis Deeney gives the ball away on the edge of his own area, Connor Richardson gets in and pulls his shot wide.
Corner from Thorley is miscued. It eventually falls to Rooney and he fires over.
Come on City!! #wcfc— @ac_wcfc 17 September 2013
Free kick from Williams smashes into the defensive wall.
Tom Thorley sets Daniel Nti scampering clear but Greg Young gets in a challenge to deny him on the edge of the box.
Glover makes his way to the touchline but looks ok to continue.
Danny Glover has an effort blocked but has jarred his knee in the process.
Jonathan Williams with the corner for Gainsborough, Jose Veiga claims and then is fouled. The fact the ball is bundled into the net means nothing.
Josh Smith gets in a cross, Nathan Rooney can't quite get his head on it. That came from a Josh Wile error.
After all the rain today, the surface is going to skid.
With the lights off in the main stand, it's a bit dark here at Aggborough. Suddenly the solitary light in the Lane press box doesn't seem so bad!
8th time lucky for Worcester City tonight? @WorcesterCityFc #WCFC— @MarcBullock 17 September 2013
