FOUR goals and three points acted as the perfect warm-up for Tuesday night's Worcestershire Senior Cup final as Worcester City comfortably saw off the challenge of relegation threatened Wolverhampton Casuals.

Two penalties from Reiss Taylor-Randle, a Ben Tilbury header and a left-footed strike from Bailey Fuller ensured the points went to the hosts ahead of the cup final with Pershore Town on Tuesday.

Despite their win, a 3-0 away win at Romulus for Boldmere St Michaels officially ended City's faint hopes of finishing second in the Midland Football League Premier and The Mikes are now just a point away from securing second place.

But 14 goals and three wins in four sees City's strong end to the season continue at the perfect time as they look to lift silverware tomorrow evening.

Casuals came to Claines Lane knowing more points would go further to cementing their place in the league and they made it hard work for City in the first-half, who welcomed the return of Chris Withington to the side.

Casuals could have also taken the lead after 20 minutes but a good save from Adam Harrison kept the scores at 0-0 and generally speaking the visitors caused problems.

City had the lions share of the ball however and with just a couple of minutes to go in the first-half they got their chance to take the lead as Muirhead was brought down in the box after getting in behind Cassies' back line.

Taylor-Randle stepped up and sent the keeper the wrong way to give the hosts the lead heading towards the break.

Then came a rather confusing situation as Demetri Brown looked to have made it two in stoppage time but despite the ball looking to have gone over the line, the referee let play go on.

It didn't prove to be decisive, however, as City came out firing in the second-half and despite not creating too much, they controlled the game and with half an hour on the clock, they made it 2-0 as Tilbury headed home from Brown's cross at the back post.

That all but secured the points and entering the final 20 minutes another penalty was awarded to Worcester as Cassies' Musa Ceesay brought down Fuller as he looked ready to tap home.

Taylor-Randle made no mistake from the spot to make it 3-0 before Fuller then increased the lead further with a low shot into the bottom corner.
