  • WORCESTER City enjoyed most of the play but again fell short in a low-key 1-1 derby draw at Stourport.
  • City were left to rue a couple of contentious decisions, including a strong penalty claim on the stroke of half-time, but Swifts earned their point.
  • Joel Ambalu turned Joe Hanson and was sent sprawling in first-half stoppage time but referee Mark Pearson was unmoved.
  • Worcester Sunday League star Nick MacPherson's shot skipped past Sean Dyaus after Alex Perry had guided in following a throw-in from the right to fire Stourport ahead just before the hour mark.
  • Nathan Hayward burst into the box and tucked away Jamie Smith's cross to level 13 minutes from time but there was no grand finale.
  • Stourport: Richards, Hanson, Caines, Higginson, Fulloway, Priest, Rogers, Hanson, MacPherson, Perry, Parsons-Smith.
  • Subs: Beardsmore, Parker, J Robinson, Devonport, Grant.
  • City: Dayus, Birley, J Smith, Stoddart, Forsyth, Hayward, Baldwin, Gomes, Ambalu, Reynolds, Tomkinson.
  • Subs: Danks, B Robinson, Moran, Lockett, Keasey.
