WORCESTER CITY 3 BRADFORD PARK AVENUE 1
Once again, Amadou Bakayoko was not involved, but fellow Saddler Jordan Murphy was named on the bench as Worcester City took on Bradford Park Avenue, with three all-important points up for grabs.

City, who haven't won a game in more than a month, opened the scoring after nine minutes of the first half as Lee Hughes slotted home following a long clearance by City 'keeper Nathan Vaughan.

Park Avenue would go on to level the scores midway through the opening period as Chibuzor Chilaka found the back of the net with an acrobatic volley following a long throw.

Worcester went back into the lead just after the thirty-minute mark as Daniel Nti slipped the ball past the goalkeeper with a superb free kick.

City further extended their lead just before the break as Deon Burton and Lee Hughes combined to allow the latter to leave the 'keeper standing with a perfectly weighted lob.

Jordan Murphy replaced Burton ten minutes into the second-half and had his best opportunity of the match with just over five minutes of the match remaining as he slipped past his marker and fired straight at the 'keeper.
