ANDY Preece will continue to give his young players the opportunity to make an impression on the first team when he takes his Worcester City side to Worksop in Nationwide North tomorrow.

City's young guns have caught the eye this season and -- now there is nothing left for the team to play for this year -- Preece cannot fail by giving them more match-time in a bid to provide them with as much valuable experience as possible.

Although Worksop are languishing in 19th place, Preece insists he will be going all-out to pick up a win that could lift his side as high as eighth in the table.

He said: "We have been superb away from home recently and, if we can repeat that form at Worksop tomorrow, we will have a good chance of winning the game.

"They are safe now, the pressure is off and they may improve their performance, so we can't go there expecting to win. We will have to play well to win and that is what we will be aiming to do.

"We wish there were still 10 games left in the season -- we would have had a good chance of getting into the play-offs.

"But, as things are, we just want to finish with a win and end up as high up the league as possible which, if results go our way tomorrow, will be eighth.

"I will put out a similar side to last Saturday with a blend of youngsters and more experienced players.

"I have been impressed with the way the youngsters have come through this season.

"Troy Wood and Gary Walker have done well when they've had the opportunity and Dale Watkins came on for 10 minutes last weekend and did well too.

"Dale, like the others, has also been impressive for the reserves.

"Nat Bulmer and Ben Walker would probably have featured a bit more too, but they have both been injured for the last few months.

"They've been unlucky not to have had their opportunities to impress in the first team. All of the young players who have made it into the first team this season could not have done more to try and earn themselves a new contract for next year. I will be looking at that after this weekend.

"I have still got a few decisions to make about who will be offered contracts, but I have a pretty clear idea of what we are going to do.

"A couple of players have already moved on and a couple have come in and I will be looking to add a few more over the summer to push us on to the next level."

Preece will have a full-strength squad to select from after last week's absentees Dennis Pearce (upset stomach) and Danny Hodnett (tight hamstring) regained fitness.

n Redditch United are scrapping for survival in Nationwide North going into the final weekend.

The second-from-bottom side, one point away from Leigh RMI and safety, entertain mid-table Barrow who have nothing but pride to play for.

Leigh have a massive task at home to champions Northwich Victoria who will bounce straight back into the Conference next season.

Bottom club Hednesford, who seem doomed, visit Vauxhall Motors.
