4:49pm

It falls to Nti but the visitors clear.

4:49pm

Corner to City. Seconds left.

Gater cracks a shot wide from distance as we enter time added on. Three minutes extra to play.

4:45pm

City are going for this with the pace of Dunkey adding to their options.

4:42pm

City piling in the pressure now for the last few minutes.

City: Daniel Udoh replaces two-goal hero Nick Wright.

4:20pm

Thomas getting abuse from the crowd and the defender is lapping it up, which is only riling the visiting fans further. Quite entertaining.

Shot from Dickenson trickles wide of the far post.

4:15pm

Stoppage in play as the Celtic physio comes on to treat Jack Truelove.

4:13pm

Nti fires over the bar and also clears the stand into the car park.

3:45pm

3:41pm

Stalybridge 42 mins: Ennis has acres of space on the right following pass from Sam Staunton-Turner and rolls the ball beyond Vaughan.

3:37pm

Wright bursts down the right, finds Mike Symons in the area, his shot is blocked and so is the follow-up from Daniel Nti.

City 32 mins: Cross from Williams is hit towards goal by Wayne Thomas and Nick Wright stabs the ball home from close range.

3:26pm

Stalybridge 27 mins: Long ball forward from Jack Truelove finds Liam Dickenson, the whole City defence stand still and Dickenson easily beats Vaughan.

3:25pm

Vaughan has been the busiest of the two keepers but largely to smother efforts.

3:24pm

A pretty low key first 25 minutes here at Aggborough.

3:21pm

Tyler Weir finished last season with two long range goals. Unfortunately, his first effort this term is well wide.

3:18pm

Stalybridge just edging things in terms of attacking play but they're doing precious little with the ball to worry Worcester.

3:14pm

Probably worth pointing out that the pitch looks in tip-top condition. A lot of money has been spent on it by Harriers over the summer.
