Date: Tuesday April 14th 2015\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\nVenue: Aggborough, Kidderminster\r\nKick–off: 7:45pm\r\n\r\nAfter the originally scheduled 2nd Severn derby of the season was postponed just 90 minutes before kick-off earlier this season, Gloucester City will be eager to make it 7 wins in a row over their closest league rivals Worcester City when they travel to Kidderminster Harriers’ Aggborough tonight.\r\n\r\nThe two teams have met already this season, with the Tigers claiming their almost regulation 3 points over Worcester in a fiercely contested 2-0 victory at Whaddon Road back in January. Nathan Modest and Billy Jones were the scorers that day.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers come into the game as the most in form side in the league, having picked up 11 points in their last 5 games, with the most recent being a superb 2-1 home victory against Chorley after Tom Webb scored an injury time winner.\r\n\r\nCity go into the match in 17th place, 5 points clear of the relegation zone and knowing that a win will be enough to guarantee their safety in the Vanarama Conference North for another season and manager Tim Harris says it’s a case of “more of the same please.”\r\n\r\nWorcester City currently sit in 9th place with 57 points, however they are just out of reach of the play offs and so they will definitely remain in the Conference North next season.\r\n\r\nGloucester City fans attending this evening are made aware that there will be segregation measures in place. City fans will have access to the East Stand Seating area and half of the South Stand Terrace.\r\n\r\nThere will be no access to the Aggborough Suite or Harriers Arms for Tigers fans although they will be welcome in the Kidderminster Harriers Supporters Club which is located behind the East Stand (Please note that no pass outs will be issued once inside the ground).\r\n\r\nTeam news: Sahr Kabba is still not quite ready to return to the squad following his hamstring injury sustained at Solihull Moors. He has had treatment on the injury yesterday and today but it is still feeling uncomfortable and so he won’t be risked.\r\n\r\nNathan Modest is also out of the squad after he was ill over the weekend. However Connor Thompson will come back into the squad following the broken hand he got away to Bradford Park Avenue a few weeks ago.\r\n\r\nYou can follow all the coverage of tonight’s match on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial), on Facebook (GCAFCofficial) and for the first time this season on Snapchat (GCAFCofficial) from 7:30pm.\r\n\r\nGloucester City’s media coverage is sponsored by Baylis Group.
