WORCESTER City cruised into the final of the Wiseman Lighting Floodlit Cup thanks to a comfortable 3-0 win over Brimscombe & Thrupp at Claines Lane on Tuesday night.

The hosts dominated from the first whistle and never looked like losing the semi-final and at full-time, manager Chris Cornes praised his side's "professional" attitude.

“It was a professional performance from start to finish,” said manager Chris Cornes.

"I am happy for the lads. It was a good win and we have to be happy with that, into a cup final.

"We wanted to go a little stronger tonight to keep that momentum going into a really busy period of games for us, but we also got some good minutes into some who have been away (Elliot Keightley and Izak Reid).

"We didn't take care at times with final passes but that pitch was really sticky and if that was a league game, I don't know if it would have been played but performance was alright and some players did better than they did at the weekend.

"It's job done and another game chalked off and now we move on to Westfields on Saturday."

Dylan Hart, returning to the starting line-up for the first time since recovering from having his appendix removed, converted from the spot to give City a 15th-minute lead after Jordan Lymn was tripped bombing forward into the box.

Chris Cornes’ men probed for the remainder of the half and Liam Lockett and Hart both came close on a number of occasions, but Brimscombe dug deep to keep themselves in the contest.

But any hopes of a second-half comeback were quickly extinguished two minutes after the restart when Kyle Belmonte's cushioned pass into Lockett’s stride was swept home into the far corner by the City winger from the edge of the box.

There were more chances to kill the game off but the result was never in doubt and the game was eventually wrapped up with 17 minutes left on the clock. Elliot Hartley was tripped in the box and Belmonte stepped up to lash home the second penalty of the night.

City book their place in the first of what they hope is three cup finals this season and will face the winner of the other semi between Abingdon and Roman Glass St George on Wednesday night.
