SOME players could be on their way out of Worcester City as manager Carl Heeley looks to add more cutting edge to his sorry side.

A run of seven matches without a victory has seen City slip to the bottom of Vanarama National League North on goal difference.

Heeley said he needed to bring in “quality” wingers who could give them more of an attacking threat.

And he insisted he was “not afraid of making tough decisions” as he revealed he would need to let go of members of his squad to make room for new recruits.

“I think we are lacking a bit of quality in the wide areas as we are not getting enough supply into the box,” said Heeley, whose side have netted five times so far this time, with Lee Hughes bagging three of them, but have failed to score in their last two games.

"A lot of the goals we have scored have been from individuals creating a situation for themselves rather than from superb balls into the box.

"When you look at the benefits of having good wide players, losing Tristian Dunkley and Daniel Nti was a major blow to us.

"So we have got to try and find some players who can give us that threat again.”

He added: “For players to come in, some have got to go out the other way.

"That goes without saying and that’s difficult as we only had 17 players to pick from on Monday.

"The other player not involved was Joe Bates, who will be a good player, but is not ready yet and it would be unfair to throw him into situations like that.

"I am not afraid of making tough decisions as I have made many of them.

"It is no good making a decision to let a player go unless you are bringing in somebody who feel improves the team and that is the difficult thing.

"But we have got to try.”

The opening month of the season has seen City draw against Harrogate Town and FC United of Manchester.

But having lost to Tamworth, FC Halifax Town, Chorley and Stockport County, Heeley admitted the time had come to make changes as City prepare to face Gainsborough Trinity at the Victoria Ground on Saturday (3pm).

“Of course it is frustrating as I want to be at the other end of the table. Whether that’s realistic or not, that’s I want and I know that’s what some of the players who signed for us want as well,” he said.

“It is still early doors.

He added: “We have got two points out of 21, so I have got to try and improve irrespective of whether it is not scoring goals since Hughesy (Lee Hughes) has been missing or conceding the odd goal, we have got to do something difference or else we are going to keep getting the same results.”
