WORCESTER Raiders will want to continue their winning form with a positive result at Telford Juniors tomorrow (3pm) after an impressive victory over Wyrley, writes John Dolan.

Raiders, who finished third in West Midlands League Division One last season, are planning for even bigger things this time around.

“The aim is to win the league but that’s what everyone wants,” said joint manager Karl Gormley.

Raiders finished 21 points short of champions Hereford Lads Club in 2016-17 but the boss is confident for the season ahead.

“The squad is definitely better this season and we’ve improved our backroom staff too,” said Gormley.

“If we are going to win the league this will be our best chance.”

Having won 5-2 at Claines Lane in their opening league game last weekend City will hope for the same again at newly-promoted Telford.

“Telford are a well-organised side but no one knows what to expect when a team comes up from the league below,” said Gormley.

“It’s going to be a tough game.”

Raiders' opening-day victory against Wyrley, who finished 13th last season, saw three goal-scorers.

Rich Smith (2) and Paul Smith netted while ex-Wolverhampton Wanderers and Worcester City player Chris Cornes scored two in his first competitive game for the club.

Gormley said: “Obviously in the first game of the season you don’t know what to expect. There’s no form to judge.

"The lads did well to win like they did. It was a very good start to the season.

“It was good to see Chris get his first goals for the club but of course it’s important to get the three points."

Raiders will hope to maintain that level of performance at Telford who lost 2-1 to Tipton Town in their opening game.

Two players who missed last Saturday’s win, Matt Tyler due to holiday and Lewis Butterworth through injury, will be available at the weekend.
