CITY boss wants his side to "regain confidence'" after a tricky two weeks spell for the club has seen the players' suffer a loss of confidence.

City were knocked out of the FA Vase in cruel fashion on penalties in that period and manager Ashley Vincent says his side need to string a run of positive performances together to lift the mood. Worcester travel to second-bottom Lye Town in the Midlands Football League Premier Division clash on Tuesday evening and Vincent emphasised the important of starting a winning run.

"“We need to string results together now after a tough two weeks for the squad," he said.

"We need to build some momentum and get some wins under our belts to regain that confidence that has been knocked recently.

“They (Lye Town) are under no illusions. They need results now and they will be battle hardened. "They have had a change in their coaching set-up and I know a bit about them and they will be a different side to the one that we played earlier in the season."

City have been struggling with injuries of late and Vincent confirmed captain Craig Jones will not play on Tuesday and also offered the latest on Jamie Smith and Marco Adaggio.

"If we were to play tomorrow, Craig won't be involved," Vincent added.

"He will be reassessed ahead of the weekend.

"Jamie (Smith) had a family commitment on Monday for the Romulus game but he will be straight back into the squad tomorrow.

"Marco (Adaggio) has a deep dead leg which has seen a bleed on the side of the muscle, so it's a really sore one for him.

He's not got a great deal of mobility in that leg at the minute but we will continue to monitor his situation in the coming weeks.

"Two or three of the boys are carrying niggles but they are ones then can play through and manage."

We reported last week that Demetri brown has left the club for Hereford United and Vincent has added forward Kye Dryden to the squad from Atherstone Town.

“He is someone who we have looked at for a period of time. Due to us being involved in the Vase and him being cup tied, it didn’t make sense for us to go for him at the time.

We had a full quota of attacking players and we couldn’t guarantee him the game time.

"That has changed now due to the Vase not being an obstacle and there being some injuries and the departure of Demetri (Brown).

"The front part of the pitch needs freshening up and he's a quick, athletic boy who likes to get the ball down and get past players and make things happen.

"We will be looking to play him wide of the front man. He is the kind of player who will stretch the pitch for us and hopefully he will come in and impress."
