MANAGER Carl Heeley wants his Worcester City side to hit top gear against Vauxhall Motors at St George's Lane on Saturday and secure their first back to back wins since August.

City head into tomorrow's clash against the Merseyside outfit boosted by a 2-0 victory at Droylsden on Tuesday night which Heeley described as Worcester's best away performance of the season.

The victory will have gone some way to overcoming the disappointment of City's 3-2 defeat last weekend to relegation battlers Histon at St George's Lane where Worcester continue to struggle to find form having won only once in their last nine outings.

And the City boss admitted finding greater consistency remained key to their hopes of staying in contention for the play offs.

"Your home form is important but having won the other night we now have seven points out of the last 12 which isn't bad form by any stretch," Heeley said.

"That said, we are just striving for that little bit of consistency and momentum so we need to try and get back to back wins and go on a little run because that will really strengthen our position."

City are set to keep faith with strike duo Danny Glover and Michael Taylor after the pair both found the target for the second successive game on Tuesday night.

Taylor was rewarded with his first start since October after a man of the match performance off the bench against Histon and his red-hot form continues to impress the City boss.

"We have got two proven goalscorers in Danny Glover and Mike Symons and they have done well but at times you need something different and Michael brings that," he said.

"Because of the way he plays it doesn't matter who you play with him because he will cause havoc himself. He has bundles of enthusiasm, is very quick and strong and he never gives defenders a minute to settle. It's just about improving his conversion rate because he does create loads of chances for us and gives us a totally different dimension."

"Danny and Michael have got the shirts at the moment and they need to keep performing because there are two very good strikers in Symo and Kyle Patterson sitting on the bench."

Fourteenth-placed Motors arrive at the Lane on Saturday having not played a league game since January 12 but they are unbeaten in their last four outings in Blue Square Bet North.

"Their manager Carl Macauley has got very good contacts within Liverpool and Everton and they get a lot of good players from them and try and play the game the right way so we will have to be on our guard."
