THE Worcester City juggernaut will try to keep rolling by going for the jugular at bottom-of-the-table Shawbury United tomorrow (3pm) according to joint-boss Lee Hughes.

Second-placed City head to Shropshire on the back of a six-match unbeaten league run that continued in style courtesy of Tuesday’s 5-1 bashing of Coventry Sphinx.

Worcester have walloped home 19 goals in four Midland League outings to establish themselves as the Premier Division’s leading scorers with 32 goals, some five clear of leaders of Coleshill Town and Coventry United.

And Hughes reckons the arrival of a more fluid display in midweek has pushed confidence levels sky high.

“The lads performed well, got into the positions we wanted them to and played some good, attacking football (on Tuesday),” said Hughes.

“The players have worked so hard for us and have started to get their just rewards.

“I have been on runs like this with a few teams and once you get on that roll, you go into every game feeling confident and thinking you’re going to get the three points. It is a good feeling to have.

"We are going to concede a few here and there but attacking wise we are doing well and it is good for the fans to see us getting at teams rather than sitting off.”

The extra oomph came about despite a reshuffle that was partly prompted by injuries with Alexandru Albert among those to shift, moving to full-back from centre-half.

“Albert had never played right-back but he has quality on the ball, we have seen that so we trusted him and I think every individual played well on Tuesday,” said Hughes.

“There are no easy games in any league, though. You have to play a strong team and take nothing for granted.

“You always have to concentrate. You see it at every level, when you take your foot off the gas and lose your focus then you get punished, that’s why you have to be disciplined.

“As long as we work hard and stay organised we’ll be confident because we have been scoring goals for fun.”

New permanent captain Brad Birch is a doubt following the recurrence of his ankle problem in midweek but Jamie Smith, who was also withdrawn on Tuesday, should be fit to feature.

Mark Danks and Josh Sarmento are likely to be involved with defender Ryan Mole, a product of City’s youth set up who shone when given the opportunity to play in the League Cup at Littleton, set to take his place in the squad.

City have no plans to recruit ahead of the match with Gloucester City’s George Forsyth unlikely to renew his loan deal following the expiry of his initial month.
