TEENAGE hot-shot Troy Wood will be gunning for more glory tonight as Worcester City make a revenge mission to Stalybridge Celtic (7.45).

Wood, 18 next week, blasted his first Nationwide North goal in City colours during Saturday's 2-2 draw with Alfreton Town at St George's Lane.

Taking advantage of a three-match ban to Mark Danks and Leon Kelly's transfer-deadline day switch to Hinckley United, Wood made a big impression on his full home league debut.

Showing good reactions, the academy forward struck home a sweet volley after his initial effort slammed against the crossbar.

Wood was withdrawn from action with 15 minutes left, suffering from a touch of cramp, but he will lead the line again at Bower Fold alongside top-goalscorer Adam Webster.

"Troy played well on Saturday," said City player-manager Andy Preece. "He's been out for a while and it's taken him a few games to get sharp.

"He said he played a one-two off the crossbar for his goal, but I'm not so sure myself! But it was nice for him.

"As a striker, you want to get your first league goal on the board, whether you are a new player going to a new club or a young lad coming through.

"So all that pressure of scoring, which could have developed, is already taken off Troy. He does not need to worry about that now.

"He's only going to get better. It was his first game for a while and, hopefully, he'll keep that coming."

With Danks poised to return at Leigh RMI on Saturday, Wood can confirm his position as third-choice striker.

Preece is expected to make minimal selection changes at Tameside, al-though he may re-arrange his midfield threesome.

Tom Warmer, a substitute in City's last two games, is waiting patiently for a recall and could be summoned.

Meanwhile, full-back Adam Burley is to receive a two-game ban after clocking up 10 bookings for the season.

The former Gainsborough Trinity defender, signed last month for a four-figure fee, earned a caution for fouling Alfreton captain Matt Fisher.

Preece is looking for revenge tonight after City crashed 1-0 at home to Celtic a fortnight ago.

He said: "Hopefully we'll go to Stalybridge tonight and get ourselves a result."
