Back-to-back wins is target for City boss

WINNING back-to-back league games for the first time this season is Worcester City’s goal following their 2-1 victory at Histon.
The Blue and Whites recorded a much-needed success in Cambridgeshire at the weekend to boost their chances of avoiding the drop in Skrill North.
But they are still in the bottom three and host Colwyn Bay this Saturday looking to put more pressure on the teams around them.
Manager Carl Heeley said: “It’s been a tough season to date and we’ve done well at times but we’ve got to do well more often and we’ve got to try and back this up.
“We’ve got to try and back that up with another win for the first time this season in the league and get some points as quickly as we possibly can.”
Meanwhile, Heeley has not ruled out bringing in another striker in order to improve their goals-for column as, despite Daniel Nti’s double at Histon, Worcester remain the division’s lowest scorers — six behind Barrow.
Although Kris Ramsey-Dickson has joined the club, Danny Glover’s departure to Bradford Park Avenue has freed up funds.
The Worcester boss said: “I think we could still add a little bit more firepower but it’s got to be the right player and they’ve got to be experienced.
“We’re working hard and there’s irons in the fire — if it doesn’t happen then it doesn’t but if it does and it’s right then we’ll take the opportunity.
“We’re always looking but we need to be as strong as we possibly can for the run in. There’s nothing planned but I wouldn’t rule it out either.”
Glover made his debut for Park Avenue in a 3-2 victory at Worcester’s relegation rivals Gloucester City.
