WORCESTER City go in search of club history with a reshuffled backline in tonight’s Worcestershire Senior Urn final against Studley (7.45).

Cup-tied Aaron Roberts and suspended Luke English will sit out the showpiece at Evesham United’s Jubilee Stadium headquarters as City look to end a turbulent season on a high.

Frontrunner Kyonn Evans could come back into contention, though, with midfielder Josh Willis being primed for a return and hopes high that the influential Tyler Weir is back from illness in time.

“There are going to be a couple of changes, it is disappointing for us to have the skipper out but it does give opportunities to one or two others,” said manager John Snape.

“We trained on Tuesday and it was good to see Kyonn back fit and playing. Josh Willis will be assessed ahead of the game and we will have to see how Tyler is.

“We will be ready and prepare properly for it. This is a cup final, a chance to win some silverware and put smiles on faces so the boys will be up and at it.

“Whenever you get so far in any competition you want to win it and the fact we are favourites is not lost on us, we won’t underestimate Studley and know that we must attack this match with the right attitude.”

City have seen off Pershore Town and Bromsgrove Sporting to go within touching distance of a first piece of silverware since the Senior Cup was lifted in July 2015.

Prior to Dan Nti, Sean Geddes and Tristian Dunkley firing Worcester to a 3-1 victory over Redditch United at the Victoria Ground, Bromsgrove, fans had waited 18 years to taste glory in the county showpiece.

Studley, a team City defeated 5-0 in the Midland Football League Cup earlier this season, got drafted back into the final despite losing to eight-man Highgate United in the semi-final only to discover the winners had fielded an ineligible player which led to their removal.

The Bees head into this one on the back of a drab 0-0 draw with Brocton on Saturday in Midland Football League Division One.

“Getting a trophy to round off what has been a tough season for everyone would be a massive lift,” added Snape.

“Like all of the league matches, we are constantly assessing the players with a view to what we need for a push for honours next season so it is up to them all to go out and show what they are about and try to get that cup for club.

“It would be great to see a good crowd over there, we have had very strong backing all season and hopefully that will continue at Evesham. It would be great to give the supporters something to shout about.”
