Heeley happy City are the ‘underdogs’

MANAGER Carl Heeley says the pressure will be off Worcester City for their FA Cup fourth qualifying round clash against Lincoln City.
The Blue and Whites set up the showdown against the Skrill Premier Imps at Aggborough a week on Saturday with Tuesday’s 2-0 third qualifying round replay victory at Rugby Town.
It is the third consecutive home draw in the competition for Worcester, following the visits of Coventry Sphinx and the Rugby stalemate last weekend.
Heeley, whose side visit Oxford City in Skrill North this weekend, said: “The pressure was all on us in the previous two rounds and it’s off us to a certain degree now so we can go and stretch ourselves against a full-time outfit in the division above and see how we cope.
“We’ll thoroughly enjoy the victory against Rugby and it’s nice now to have a great game to look forward to.
“I am sure people will turn out in numbers to watch that one because it’s a great game for the fans.
“Lincoln City are going to be the favourites against us so we’re the underdogs but it’s a day for us to enjoy and see if we can pull off a shock.”
