Worcester City defender poised to face former club

Worcester News: Tyler Weir set to return against Gloucester Tyler Weir set to return against Gloucester

TYLER Weir could be back in the Worcester City team to face former club Gloucester City in today’s derby at Aggborough (3pm).

The left-back left City to join the Tigers in the summer but made a shock return to the Blue and Whites last month.

Weir was on the bench for the Boxing Day draw at Solihull Moors and the 1-0 victory over Harrogate Town, but injuries could see him restored to the team.

Skipper Graham Hutchison (ankle) is still out, while central defensive colleagues Shabir Khan (hernia) and Richard Munday (calf and hamstring) are doubts.

City manager Carl Heeley said: “We’ll need fresh legs and to swap it around a little bit to maximise the squad.

“It could be Tyler going up against his old club but he’s a Worcester City player and he’s done ever so well for us.

“He’s been out for the last couple of games but he’s a good lad and we’re glad to have him.”

Only a point separates the teams in the relegation battle with Worcester sitting above the drop-zone with a game in hand.

Gloucester won 2-1 when the sides met at Whaddon Road in August in a game marred by red cards for Shabir and Tigers skipper Matt Coupe.

The incident led to ugly scenes on the sidelines and both clubs were reported to the FA, although no action was taken.
