FAC Preview Worcester V Imps The Big Fat STMI Guide
Worcester City entertain Lincoln in an FA Cup tie that both desperately need to win. The Imps return to whence they were vanquished 4-1 last week backed by the hordes of Impdom who will travel in our 100’s. The last minute signing of action Jackson sees us aerially stronger up top, but he also adds pace and a pair of magnetic boots that make him unplayable on his day. The pitch will be even heavier than last week suggesting thrills and spills after a pitch inspection passed it fit only this afternoon.

The Blues find themselves weakened after on loan Phil Trainer returned to Nuneaton Town and defensive stalwart Munday pulled up with a hamstring injury. He will be replaced by Shabir Khan who has recovered from injury and Sam Smith is back from Stourport Swifts after a loan to get him up to match speed. Munday and Hutchison were instrumental in the seven clean sheets of the last few weeks, so this will hurt them, as will Trainer, for his omission from the wing will not help the goal-shy Blues cause. Moore could be brought back to replace Nti up top but the two big dangers for the Imps will be Glover and Danny Williams on the right wing. The lad is hit and miss, but the Cup is a great leveller, from which all walks of life have grown into heroes.
So far this season Danny Glover has scored three goals including a beauty in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Rugby to set up this mouthwatering tie, he is clever, he is nippy and, together with right-winger Aaron Williams and midfield engines Taundry and Thorley, The Dragons do offer a serious threat to Lincoln’s FA Cup progression. In goal is Simmo’s outstanding ex-stopper Jose Veiga – aka the cape crusader – but you have to question full-backs George Williams and Deeley against Newton and Miller. They will also now face Marlon Jackson who is like lightening.
Tomlinson is also no slouch suggesting these two could form part of a trio up front tomorrow with either Wright or Connor Robinson set to plunder. Connor will at least make the bench tomorrow, as Simmo looks to ring the changes for scoring and injury reasons. Sheridan (Jordan looks crocked) and Power should get a start but both need to deliver on the goal and attacking front fast with a second striker inbound Jackson will use tomorrow to stake his claim on the right. Marlon has a knack for scoring on his debut………..
