YOUNG Aaron Brett could find himself in the starting line-up for Worcester City tomorrow night (7.45pm) as they look to overcome Chasetown and line up an FA Cup first qualifying round clash at Wolverhampton Casuals or Boldmere St Michaels.

The 16-year-old came off the bench to earn Worcester a replay in Sunday’s match at the Victoria Ground, cancelling out a long-range Will Whielden effort.

But with strike pair Lee Hughes and Dave Reynolds likely to miss the trip to the Staffordshire Northern Premier League Division One South club Brett, affectionately known as BamBam to his team-mates, could get the nod for a place alongside veteran marksman Mark Danks.

Hughes suffered a leg injury in the 5-0 defeat of AFC Wulfrunians last week and joint City boss John Snape admitted Reynolds was also a doubt after crashing into Chasetown keeper Darren Pond early in Sunday’s tie.

“He has five stitches and they won’t be out for five days so it will be a struggle for him,” Snape explained.

“It’s all about our recovery as we have a few knocks and bruises. Aaron Griffiths has a tight calf, Tyler Weir and Matt Birley will both be tight and those are the type of players we need to get us through.

“BamBam took his goal well. Credit to the football club because he has come through the youth ranks.

“He got a few minutes in Conference North last year and came on early at the weekend and didn’t look out of place.

“We need to look after him because he’s only 16 but he’s been fantastic in training and is a great prospect moving forward.”

Worcester played the majority of Sunday’s second half with just 10 men after midfielder Brad Birch saw red but Snape was impressed by the way his players responded, particularly his teenage striker.

He added: “When we went down to 10 we stuck together in the face of adversary and kept our shape with young Brett leading the line up front on his own.

“He worked his socks off and I think he set the tone for the rest of the lads. If you walked in at that point I don’t think you’d have known that we only had 10 men. 

“We maybe got involved a bit when we didn’t have to and that’s something we’ll have to look at ahead of the replay.”

Birch should be able to play in tomorrow night’s replay with his ban likely to come into effect after seven days.

The same should be the case with Chasetown midfielder James O’Neill who also saw red after picking up two yellows during a frenetic second half.

If City win then on Saturday, September 2, they will head to Casuals or Boldmere who also replay tomorrow night after drawing 2-2.

Evesham will head to Stratford Town if they beat Newcastle Town in the replay at the Jubilee Stadium on Wednesday (7.45pm).

Redditch United visit Lincoln United or Belper Town, Alvechurch go to Sporting Khalsa or Market Drayton Town and Hereford FC host Godalming Town.
