MANAGER Carl Heeley paid tribute to Worcester City's travelling support who braved the conditions to see their clinch their fifth win in six games.

Fans made the 320-mile round trip to Yorkshire and were battered by the elements during the Skrill North encounter.

“It was a tough game in tough conditions and credit to both sets of players for playing an entertaining game in atrocious conditions," the City boss said.

"But credit to our supporters who have stood in the rain, got behind the team and played their part in the win. Fair play to them.”

Heeley contrasted his team’s current form to that of earlier in the season when they were marooned in the bottom three and struggling to string two wins together.

“This season the one thing we have done is defend consistently and keep 14 clean sheets," he said. "The belief is there, the squad is together with a good spirit and there is confidence in the camp.”

Commenting on his side's 1-0 win, the Worcester manager highlighted the game plan that produced another victory.

He explained: “It was a dogged display and we knew if we got a goal we would be difficult to break down.

“Guiseley are a very good footballing side and you can see they pass the ball about very well and the one thing we didn’t want to do was play high up the pitch and get picked off."

Heeley continued: “I think our style of play was a little bit more effective than Guiseley’s and we looked to hit them on the counter attack. It was only in the last 15 minutes that Guiseley put any real pressure on us.”
