It falls to Nti but the visitors clear.
Corner to City. Seconds left.
Gater cracks a shot wide from distance as we enter time added on. Three minutes extra to play.
City are going for this with the pace of Dunkey adding to their options.
City 86 mins: Tristian Dunkley replaces Mike Symons.
City piling in the pressure now for the last few minutes.
Free-kick from Ennis crashes into the defensive wall.
Stalybridge 80 mins: Harley Wigley on for Aiden Chippendale.
City 79 mins: Graham Hutchison for foul on Chippendale.
Nti flashes a header wide from Nelson-Addy's corner.
Hailstorm has started at Aggborough.
Daniel Udoh opens up his box of tricks and the crowd appreciate it.
Nti's cross hits Symons and the ball cannons off the post and into the arms of Lewis King.
City 69 mins: Ebby Nelson-Addy comes on for Danny Jackman.
Stalybridge 66 mins: George Lomax on for Ben McKenna.
City: Daniel Udoh replaces two-goal hero Nick Wright.
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.
Stoppage in play as the Celtic physio comes on to treat Jack Truelove.
Nti fires over the bar and also clears the stand into the car park.
Connor Gater prods the ball wide following good build-up play. City doing all the attacking at present.
52 mins: Both Williams and Ennis are cautioned for that incident.
Williams and Ennis square up to each other off the ball.
Jackman's corner is towards Symons but, falling backwards, can only head over.
City 48 mins: Jackman's corner is aimed for Deeney whose shot falls to Wright and he slams in his second of the game.
Nti's shot is blocked and it will be a corner to City.
Attendance is 565.
Stalybridge 42 mins: Ennis has acres of space on the right following pass from Sam Staunton-Turner and rolls the ball beyond Vaughan.
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.
Stalybridge 27 mins: Long ball forward from Jack Truelove finds Liam Dickenson, the whole City defence stand still and Dickenson easily beats Vaughan.
Vaughan has been the busiest of the two keepers but largely to smother efforts.
A pretty low key first 25 minutes here at Aggborough.
Tyler Weir finished last season with two long range goals. Unfortunately, his first effort this term is well wide.
Stalybridge just edging things in terms of attacking play but they're doing precious little with the ball to worry Worcester.
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.
Ennis whips over the free-kick from the left, Nathan Vaughan clears and also takes out Matty Hughes in the process.
Danny Jackman gets underneath the ball and fires over following a neat passage of play from the hosts.

We're off. What does this season have in store?
