Worcester City v Lincoln City - match preview
Gary Simpson is not taking Worcester City lightly as he prepares his Lincoln City side for their FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie tomorrow (3pm).
The Imps travel to Kidderminster’s Aggborough Stadium to take on the Blues who play in the division below City.
Despite the Imps being in the Skrill Premier, Simpson believes Skrill North side Worcester City will give them plenty to think about.
“They got off to a sticky start, they have picked up of late,” said Simpson.

“I’ve watched them a couple of times. They have got one or two players who have played a bit higher, like Danny Glover who was at Port Vale.
“It’s what we do on the day. We know we can cause teams problems, but at the moment we’ve hit a bit of a stumbling block in scoring goals.
“It’s about us on Saturday and about what we can do to get back to winning ways.”
Simpson’s side have won one game out of their last seven. Their task of breaking that run on Saturday was given a further blow with news that there are doubts over the fitness of striker Nick Wright.
Wright scored City’s only goal in the 4-1 defeat at Kidderminster last weekend when he came on as a second-half substitute. However, after playing an hour against Gainsborough Trinity in the Lincolnshire County Cup on Tuesday night he suffered another problem with his hamstring.
Danny Rowe is continuing to struggle with an ankle injury and it also looks likely that Todd Jordan will be missing with a hernia issue.
“Nick Wright came in for treatment on Wednesday and hasn’t trained on Thursday,” said Simpson.
“We think Todd Jordan will need a hernia operation. The kid has come in and done well for us. He has had to fill a hole that he’s not accustomed too.
“The sooner we get it done the sooner we get him back.”
Lincoln head into the game tomorrow with a new addition to their trophy cabinet after they beat Gainsborough Trinity 4-2 on penalties to claim the Lincolnshire County Cup.
Simpson changed his team round for the match which allowed players such as Bohan Dixon a chance to get more minutes on the pitch.
“We left seven or eight out of them out as we had some on bookings that could be on suspensions,” said Simpson.
“It gave us an opportunity to play the ones who haven’t. It also gave us the chance to look at players in different positions.”
