COACHES’ CORNER: Bren Kelly previews Worcester City

Ahead of Tuesday night’s Worcestershire Senior Urn semi-final versus Worcester City, manager Bren Kelly has previewed the task at hand, the squad decisions and reflection on THAT win on Saturday vs Peterborough Sports.

“On Tuesday night, we take on our tenants Worcester City in the semi finals of the Worcestershire Senior Urn.

“As it’s a local derby, and the fact we are the holders of the competition, we will certainly be looking to win the game.

“It will also give us a chance to change the team somewhat, as some players need minutes.

“However, we will still be fielding a strong side and it gives the lads an opportunity to get in mine and Andy’s head when it comes to squad selection going forward.

“The last time the sides met, it turned out to be a memorable and pivotal result in the chase for the league title last season.

“This time, it’s a cup place at stake and, of course, the local bragging rights.

“Worcester have had a decent season so far considering they lost some of there best players.

“They still went unbeaten for 15 or 16 games at one stage, so it’s clear they are still a good side and the management team their are more than capable.

“We come into the game probably still buzzing but possibly mentally drained from the breathtaking rollercoaster of a game against Peterborough Sports on Saturday.

“A game that will live long in the memory; however, that is all it is now – a memory.

“We need to dust ourselves off and knuckle back down to the basics.

“Albeit a very important win, we need to defend better and conceding three goals at home is not something that’s sits comfortably with me.

“We are still a long way off from being the complete side I’m striving for, but we are learning all the time, which is important and welcomed.

“The atmosphere at the VG on Saturdat was red hot once again and I hope our faithful will turn up in big numbers again to cheer us on.

“Thank you all so much for the continued support. I can only describe Saturday as ‘absolute scenes’ and it was brilliant.

“See you all Tuesday.”
