WORCESTER City are determined there will be no repeat of the FA Trophy disappointment against Altrincham when the play-off rivals clash on Saturday.

Only goal difference separates City from the fifth-placed Robins ahead of the Blue Square Bet North match at St George’s Lane.

Carl Heeley’s team propelled themselves back into the mix after winning 3-0 at lowly Colwyn Bay last Saturday.

They also have a point to prove after losing 3-0 to Altrincham in non-league’s premier knock-out competition in November.

“The players are capable and they’ve proved that because it’s tough at Colwyn Bay,” the Worcester manager said. “They’ve got that skill and a work ethic, sometimes they lack a little bit of knowledge and experience, but if we turn up against anybody they’ll be in for a tough game.

“Altrincham have got a lot of firepower and we’ve got to guard against that but we’re not too bad ourselves.”
