Match Report

Close cup clash

Two late goals saw Worcester City win a closely-fought cup clash with Gloucester City.

Harry Rebbeck struck twice in the last 10 minutes as the hosts' second-half domination paid off.

Worcester started the brighter and Rebbeck had a couple of early chances before the visitors got a foothold in the game and the balance of play swung in their favour.

A break down the left wing seemed to have been thwarted by the home side but, despite several opportunities, Worcester were unable to clear their lines and were punished as a Gloucester player was able to shoot home.

Kyle Shaw shot narrowly wide at the end of the first-half as Gloucester went into the break with the advantage, whilst the second began with the visiting keeper smartly tipping over a Rebbeck drive that arose from a short corner.

As Worcester worked hard to create openings, Gloucester defended resolutely but clear-cut chances were few and far between. A gilt-edged one did fall to the industrious Ed Bowers but he hit over from close range.

However the hosts didn't give up and a flowing move resulted in Rebbeck firing a well-deserved equaliser.

With three minutes to go and the tie then seemingly heading for penalties, a goalkeeping error saw Rebbeck pounce and roll the ball into an empty net to give Worcester victory.

Despite defeat, the Gloucester City squad could leave with their heads held high as they fought hard throughout. Good luck to them for the rest of the season.
