MANAGER Carl Heeley insists no stone has been left unturned as Worcester City bid for FA Cup success against Godalming Town.

City head to Surrey to take on the Ryman League Division One South high-fliers in a second qualifying round clash tomorrow (3pm).

Carrying £4,500 in prize money, it is the first ever meeting between the sides, who are separated by 41 places in the non-league pyramid.

Worcester, seventh in Blue Square Bet North, will be the favourites at Wey Court but they are going up against a side who are fourth in their league and unbeaten in September.

Heeley, though, says the St George’s Lane side have done their homework and are ready to continue their own good run of form, which has seen them record back-to-back wins against Bishop’s Stortford and Solihull Moors.

The City boss said: “No game of football is easy and it’s made more difficult if you are not on your mettle.

“Most people would say Worcester City should progress, and they are right, but you see shocks because teams are not switched on and we have got to guard against that. That’s the biggest issue.

“Godalming’s record is quite impressive, they are on a decent run of form so we won’t be underestimating them.

“There is a bit of unknown quantity but that’s only the case if you don’t do your homework.

“We watch all of our opponents before we play them. It’s crucial you get up to date information on your opponents.”

New striker Lee Smith, signed from Nuneaton Town this week, comes straight into the squad and could replace Simon Brown as the attacking midfielder is still struggling with a hamstring injury sustained last Saturday.

However, hitman Luke Corbett is also in contention, while the versatile Neil Cartwright is fit again following a bout of salmonella, but winger Danny Edwards (hamstring) is still out.

Heeley, who can name seven substitutes in the competition, added: “You always look forward to the FA Cup but it’s another game of football and we want to win as many matches as we can.

“It’s an opportunity for us to get a third win in a row.

“If we can progress we will look at the draw and see who we get but we are not thinking any further than tomorrow.

“We all now the potential of a cup run but we have to take one game at a time.”
