THE turnaround in Worcester City's fortunes over the past three months has been nothing short of remarkable.

Carl Heeley's side have gone from starring down the barrel of relegation to mid-table safety and even harbouring hopes of a top-half finish.

In winning eight of their last 13 Skrill North games, the Blue and Whites have virtually secured their status in the division for another season.

Few would have believed that in January.

Such has been their run of form that there is almost an expectation of victory every time City step on to the pitch.

Not many would have believed that either.

Tuesday's 0-0 draw against Stockport County at Aggborough was a case in point, with right-back George Williams admitting the players' frustration at not having recorded back-to-back home victories following Sunday's win over Vauxhall Motors.

That in itself highlights the confidence and belief coursing through the team at the moment and they will be looking to put Histon to the sword at Aggborough on Saturday (3pm).

Williams said: "It's a good thing that we came off the pitch frustrated that we haven't won.

"When we played them before we lost quite heavily and it shows that we've come on a lot because I couldn't see them winning.

"I think if anyone was going to nick it, it was us but we are happy to get a point and another clean sheet.

"We've been on a really good run and we want to keep it going until the end of the season. We're now looking to the top half of the table instead of looking behind us. All we're doing is looking forwards and trying to get in the top half of the table.

"It's always difficult when you're down there and losing but it showed great character as a team that we all stuck together and pulled through.

"We made a couple of new additions with Wayne Thomas and Aaron Brown who are really experienced, they've helped us pull through and we've really turned it around."

He added: "Seven points out of nine (three home games) would be really good. We set our goal as getting nine out of nine, that hasn't worked but we're going to push on for a win against Histon which would be really good."

Williams has enjoyed a fine debut season in Skrill North after joining from Loughborough University in the summer, along with striker Daniel Nti and midfielder Ebby Nelson-Addy.

The 20-year-old has played 38 times for Heeley's team this term, scoring one goal against Gloucester back in August.

He also feels he has benefitted from the arrival of veteran centre-half Wayne Thomas.

Williams explained: "He's just really experienced and his talking on the pitch is about organising and never switching off.

"If you switch off for a second you know that he's there just to give you a little kick up the backside so it's really good."
