NICK Colley is eyeing his first goal of the season at Workington tomorrow -- and the challenges don't stop there.

The 30-year-old believes he can net 10 times for Worcester City this term and retain the honour of leading midfield marksman.

Colley burst the net on six occasions in his debut season at St George's Lane, but he feels his late runs into the box and dead-eye finishing should produce greater results.

"I will not be happy unless I get 10 goals this season," admits the former Tamworth man. "I scored six last year and I hardly played in the centre of midfield.

"When John Barton was manager, I was mostly out on the wing trying to put the ball in for others. But since Andy Preece came I've been more involved in the middle and that's when I started scoring all those goals.

"I should have scored against Gainsborough. I had a couple of good chances and I'm usually better than that."

Summer acquisitions Chris Smith and Graham Hyde opened their accounts as Worcester defeated Trinity 2-1 to register their first win in Nationwide North.

It was relief all round following a stuttering start to the league campaign, although Colley admits the result was not wildly celebrated.

Colley said: "We came off after the game and, even though we won, we were still disappointed with certain aspects of our play. I think that is a positive thing.

"We were not happy with our general play. At times, we are struggling to find an end product and not being able to finish a move off in the final third.

"We are all guilty of making the wrong decisions during the course of a game. But it will soon come together and we are working so hard that teams cannot out-work us."

City are stopping in Cumbria tonight, with the players paying for their own accommodation, before taking on last season's UniBond Premier Division play-off winners at Borough Park.

Workington are already slumped in the bottom three and Preece will want to further twist the knife.

Midfielder George Clegg is available after returning from holiday but is not match-fit after missing Monday's reserve fixture with Burton Albion, while Justin Thompson may figure in defence.

Young striker James Smith has been ruled out with a knee injury picked up in training.

Colley added: "We don't know what to expect at Workington. They are looking for their first win, so it's a dangerous fixture for us.

"We must try and go on a winning run to put ourselves among the teams near the top.

"There's no question that we must do well away from home if we are to challenge.

"It would be nice to pick up three points from every home game and take a draw or a win on our travels."
