SWIFTS chalked up a goalless draw for the second successive match and have only themselves to blame after gilt edged chances went begging at Worcester City.

Worcester began brightly, and Richards had to react fast to keep out Liam Lockett’s effort at the near post, and Lewis Platt cleared off the line following a right wing corner, and Jim Hanson did the same after Richards palmed out another effort from Lockett. After 21 minutes Dimitri Brown blazed over from close range as Worcester threatened again , but Swifts best chance of the half fell to Jamie Clarke, who took an extra touch when through on goal, but fired over the top from six yards.

Two minutes into the second half Platt cut inside from the left past two defenders but shot wide when clean through on goal, then Fulloway’s header from Canavan’s corner was tipped onto the bar by keeper Ted Cann.

Mark Danks gave Swifts a cutting edge when introduced after 67 minutes, but twice shot wide, while Jim Hanson also went close after narrowly failing to connect with Danks’ cross.

Richards came to the rescue late on with an outstanding double save from first Tyrell Ruddock then Jordan Harrison.

That stalemate followed last Saturday's 0-0 draw against Boldmere St Michaels in the FA Cup preliminary round.

The replay will take place on Monday, September 2 with the winner drawn to face Stratford Town.

Meanwhile, Swifts are away to Boldmere St Michaels in the FA Vase Qualifying Round this Saturday.
