WORCESTER City will head into tomorrow's trip to Solihull Moors with an almost full strength squad.

It has been a frustrating few weeks for City who have seen their last two league games fall victim to the freezing weather.

But the break from competitive action has allowed time for defensive trio Stuart Whitehead, Jacob Rowe and Lee Ayres to all recover from injury.

Keeper James Dormand (calf) remains City's only major doubt with Matt Sargeant ready to deputise for the former Redditch stopper.

"We did pick up a few injuries after our last game against Histon so the positive is it has given us an opportunity to get those players back to fitness," Heeley said.

"Last time Jimmy (Dormand) trained he was feeling his calf a bit so I don't know on him yet but we are not going to be a million miles away from being full at strength."

City have not won a game since the turn of the year, a run which has seen them slip to ninth and eight points off the play-off places.

But Heeley believes his side can get back to winning ways on Saturday against Moors, who are currently 14th in Blue Square Bet North.

"We do want to get back onto a winning run as soon as possible," he said.

"It's going to be a tough game - it's a local derby and they are always close games between the two clubs. We are going to have to be at our best to stand a chance of getting anything from the game, but fingers crossed we can get back on a winning run."
