WORCESTER City boss Chris Cornes said his players will "work their socks off" to end this season on a high after putting their FA Vase semi-final defeat behind them with a 4-0 win against local rivals Worcester Raiders.

City face Mangotsfield United on Thursday night at Claines Lane and Cornes said his side has no plans to take their foot off the gas.

"We have a great togetherness and we want to carry that on.

"The mentality is to win every game at any cost. We have 22 players so we'll have some lads coming in to the startling line up, but it's business as usual.

"I think the maximum number of points we can get is 103 so we want to get to that and go out in a blaze of glory."

City missed out on a dream trip to Wembley after losing on penalties to Great Wakering Rovers last weekend.

The players had to quickly put the disappointment behind them as they returned to league action on Tuesday night, facing rivals Worcester Raiders at Sixways.

A resounding 4-0 win handed City their 29th win of the campaign, and Cornes was quick to compliment his side's performance.

"We were very, very good," he said.

"I was really pleased with the lads' performance, I think 4-0 flattered them in a way but a wins a win.

"We are now three points closer to breaking the 100-point barrier. A clean sheet is massive in football but the score could have been double figures.

"It was men vs boys out there at times. We were in control the game in front of a massive crowd in a local derby."

Cornes said the fixture against the Raiders was the perfect match for his side to play after being "down in the dumps" from the heart-breaking loss in the FA Vase.

"Our objective was always to win the league but over the two legs we were not quite good enough to get the job done," he said.

"The lads were fantastic to pick themselves up and it shows the group that we have got.

"I shook off the disappointment after five minutes but each individual deals with it in their own way.

"We won't watch the game back, we went out and celebrated afterwards to reflect on what we have achieved.

"I am the proudest person after what they have achieved. We won the league at a canter and they'll work their socks off to end the season on a high."
