ANDY Preece is tipping goal-shy strikers Adam Webster and Leon Kelly to break their league duck against Droylsden at St George's Lane today (3pm).

Last season's on-song front duo are yet to get off the mark in four Nationwide North matches this term. Both forwards squandered clear-cut chances on Saturday as City racked up 25 shots in their one-sided 2-2 draw at Workington.

After trailing 2-0 at half-time to the promoted Cumbrians, Worcester were indebted to defender Chris Smith and super-sub Jai Stanley's stoppage-time strike to rescue a point.

Player-manager Preece refused to criticise Webster and Kelly and praised their hard-working performances. However, he hinted that other squad strikers may be in line for an opportunity if his leading partnership continues to fire blanks.

"Leon and Webby both worked their socks off for the team," said Preece. "There's no way I'm going to criticise them.

"They have worked so hard and they create things for other people. They are important players for us.

"They could easily get a couple of goals apiece against Droylsden and I would not be at all surprised if they did score. That's how it sometimes works with strikers.

"Leon and Webby both had chances against Workington. They are getting in there. If they keep doing that they will get goals."
