Worcester City will be without new signing Darragh Bustin for this weekend's FA Cup clash with Malvern Town as the club await the results of a scan on a knee injury.

Bustin, the winger signed from Tividale in the summer, picked up an injury in the pre-season defeat to Cinderford Town.

Manager Tim Harris was hopeful the injury is not as bad as first feared, but the severity of the injury remains unknown.

There is no timeframe at this point but he will not be involved in Saturday's extra-preliminary round tie.

Josh Schuck is another who won't feature after he sprained his ankle in mid-week, whilst there is doubts over whether Chris Withington will make the squad due to a muscular problem.

Harris has already indicated that it is about time City had a decent run in the FA Cup, a competition he is very fond of.

"The FA Cup holds a special memory to myself," he said.

"I have had some great FA Cup runs in my career. But I think it’s about time we had ourselves a little run but Malvern won’t be easy, it’s a local derby, they will be up for it so it will be interesting.

"They will be very competitive and they have a quality group of players. I am sure it will be an exciting one for all supporters involved, we are looking forward to it. "
