IT could be a historic afternoon for Worcester City this Saturday when they welcome Slimbridge to Claines Lane in the Hellenic League Premier.

Three points over Slimbridge would equal the club's record of 12 league wins in a row, set back in the 1976-77 season.

Starting with that 1-0 win over Worcester Raiders at Sixways in the first-ever Worcester Derby back at the end of August, City have won 10 consecutive matches in the league to highlight themselves as the dominant force in the Hellenic League Premier.

Despite not actually being top of the table, they are only one point off leaders Corsham Town with four games in hand and remain the team to beat.

But with the record on the line, it's "just another game" according to captain Adam Mace: "We haven’t spoken about it as a group (the record). 

"I think we know we are there or thereabouts with the record but all we do is focus on our games, win them, and move on.

"Our football at the moment is fantastic, we are playing really well, but this weekend is just another league game for us which we want to win and then we move on, it's as simple as that."

Manager Chris Cornes echoed the comments of his skipper, but did speak about his desire to leave behind a legacy from his time in charge.

"It's not about the record but you do think about it, less so the lads," he added. "For them, this season is all about what might come at the end of it with trophies and personal/team accolades.

"I spoke about legacy before and I have spoken about us a big group; player, coaches, staff, the board,  leaving our mark this season.

"Things can change so quickly in football, so if we can leave something like this record behind, it would be something to celebrate.

"But this week is all about beating Slimbridge and putting another three points on the board."
