WORCESTER City boss Ashley Vincent is challenging his players to “hammer home” their quality in Wednesday night’s rearranged Buildbase FA Vase fourth-round tie with Coventry United (7.45pm), writes Marcello Cossali-Francis.

The game was scheduled to go ahead on Sunday afternoon but the Victoria Ground was deemed unplayable by the referee due to a waterlogged pitch following an 11.30am inspection.

Despite the postponement and there being so much on the line with a trip to Atherstone Town awaiting the winners, Vincent wants his players to stick to normal routine.

“There is no special treatment,” he said.

“Just a great game of football to be involved in between two good sides that will fancy their chances on the day.

“We have to hammer home our quality and take the initiative.”

A big crowd is expected at Bromsgrove's Victoria Ground as City look to continue their journey in the prestigious competition.

Vincent is hoping the home fans can influence the match as much as possible.

“I hope everyone can get behind the boys and push them home,” he continued.

“Be that 12th man and get us into the next round.

“We are thoroughly looking forward to it and feel like we are well prepared and ready.

"We are hoping for a great evening on and off the field.”

Whilst Vincent is feeling buoyant ahead of the cup tie, he is well aware of the quality Coventry possess.

“They have a very disciplined side that doesn’t concede many goals,” he said.

“Once they go ahead they are pretty hard to peg back and that was the impressive side when we played against them or have had them watched.

“They are a team. Everyone knows their jobs, sticks to them and they get results by doing that.”

City and Coventry have already played each other this season and they will meet again later this month in the Midland Football League Premier Division at Butts Park Arena.

Coventry were 1-0 winners in the league at the Victoria Ground last October but Vincent believes his charges have what it takes to reverse that result in the Vase showdown.

He said: “Anyone that was here for the game they won 1-0 would have seen us miss a penalty and a hatful of chances so I think both managers and sides will be confident about what they have in the dressing room and be looking forward to it.”

With the delay to the game there is a chance that defender Joe Hawkins could be fit enough to make the squad.

He was set to face a late fitness test on Sunday ahead of the game but the postponement may mean he could make the cut.

City will also welcome back midfielder Kurtis Mewies and striker Marco Adaggio from suspension.
