Danny Glover delighted to be in the goals at Worcester City

Worcester News: DANNY GLOVER: Has suffered a frustrating stop-start season with Worcester City. DANNY GLOVER: Has suffered a frustrating stop-start season with Worcester City.

IT is amazing what a goal can do for a player’s confidence – and that certainly seems to have been proven by Danny Glover.

Until two weeks ago, the Worcester City striker had managed only five goals this season and had not hit the target since the 2-1 defeat to Stalybridge Celtic on October 13.

Although an Achilles problem kept him out for the whole of November, Glover’s scoring touch was becoming frustratingly elusive.

Now, however, as City prepare for today’s return match against Jim Harvey’s side (3pm), the 23-year-old finds himself in a rich vein of form having netted four times in three matches.

The former Nuneaton Town hitman struck against Histon on January 26, a game Worcester lost 3-2, before helping them to a 2-0 victory over Droylsden and bagging both goals in last Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Vauxhall Motors.

He has now reached nine for the campaign and is just two behind leading marksman Mike Symons, who himself is currently going through a barren spell having drawn a blank in front of goal since December 1.

Glover said: “I have had a stop-start season, it’s been frustrating. I started off OK and then I got the injury and I couldn’t shake it off for a good three months or so.

“I’m starting to feel sharp again now and when I am in certain situations I am not having to think about it, it’s just happening and I’m scoring goals again.”

Manager Carl Heeley is also pleased to see Glover back among the goals as City look to keep up the heat on the Blue Square Bet North play-off positions.

He said: “I thought Danny was one of our best players against Vauxhall Motors, certainly in the first-half. He looked lively and got a couple of goals. It’s good to see him starting to find the net a bit more frequently.”

Glover admits his personal achievements count for little if City don’t win, something that was evident following the Motormen draw.

“I would have preferred to score the two and won the game or not scored at all and win,” he added.
