A fifth-minute strike from Connor Gudger after a great pass from Dave McDermott gave City the lead in a first-half that will also be remembered for a torrential downpour on the half-hour mark as thunderstorms from the west made their way past the ground.

Ten minutes into the second-half, Worcester scored their second goal when Ellis Deeney chipped the ball over Town keeper Andy Kemp into the net.

Town manager Carl Adams was pleased with his side’s performance. “I thought that it was a good workout against a very well-organised team. Nobody is working harder than us at the moment in pre-season and these sort of games are exactly what we planned to test us before our league season gets under way.

“The Worcester manager [Carl Heeley] congratulated me and said he was impressed with our set-up and performance. It’s going to be another tough game against Leamington but we are getting stronger with each game.”
