THE Hellenic League Premier clash between Worcester City and Pershore Town has been postponed.

There was a 3pm inspection at the Recruit 12 Community Stadium on Friday ahead of kick-off due to the rain this week in Worcestershire.

And, as has happened all too recently for City in particular, the pitch was deemed unplayable due to a waterlogged surface.

Questions immediately turn to when the game can be replayed in an already hectic final two months for the entire league. City still have 11 league games left alongside their various cup fixtures between now and the middle of May. As for Pershore, they have nine league games remaining.

Focus now turns to the second Worcester Derby of the season for City on Tuesday, although even that is now in doubt due to the weather.

Worcester have had to move three games away from their Claines Lane home this season, with one at Sixways and two at Malvern Town's HDAnywhere Community Stadium.

With a huge week coming up for Chris Cornes' side, with a FA Vase quarter-final on Saturday against Emley also at Claines also to come, they will be desperate to not lose any more games to postponements.
