Worcester City made it three wins out of three away from home as they beat Racing Club Warwick 1-0 on Tuesday night.

City’s night took an unfortunate turn as captain Craig Jones was carried off the field just moments after Aaron Birch scored the game’s only goal.

The club revealed on Wednesday afternoon that Jones is being treated for a suspected broken ankle and ligament damage.

The win leaves City second in the Midland League Premier Division, behind unbeaten Boldmere St Michaels.

The first chance of the evening fell to the hosts’ Fraser Doyle whose headed effort was cleared by Josh Schuck at the back post.

With 20 minutes played Chris Sterling and Birch, who were both brought back into the starting line-up, combined for what proved to be the winning goal.

Sterling’s cross came to Birch who was able to turn nicely before firing the ball into the top of the net from close range.

Three minutes later City skipper Jones cleared the ball before being caught late by Warwick’s Luke Cole, who was shown yellow for his mistimed challenge as Jones was carried off the pitch.

Another good move from City before the break saw Archie Muirhead release Billy Shaw who cut inside before seeing his effort fly narrowly wide.

Despite the result and 100 per cent away record, manager Tim Harris would like to see his team be more clinical in front of goal as Luke English, Dan Westwood and Callum Debar all missed chances to seal the game in the second half.

Speaking to the club website, he said: “I’ve got to be honest with you, the number of chances we’ve created has been incredible. We’ve got to start putting some away, it’s not just down to luck is it.

“The most pleasing thing for everybody, and every Worcester City supporter, is that it is back-to-back wins, it’s six points in two games. It’s not been pretty, but it’s been effective.”

On the injury to Jones, Harris added: “He’s in hospital at the moment but the less said about that the better. I thought it was naughty.”

City take on third placed Hanley Town in their next league match, on Saturday September 11.
