Worcester City: Carl Heeley plays down AFC Telford links

Bucks Head

Worcester City boss Carl Heeley has played down speculation linking him to the AFC Telford managerial post.

Heeley is just one name to be linked with the job, which became available after Graham Hyde's resignation.

"If anything became concrete and the question is asked, you have a call to make. But there's been no approach - it's no more than that at the moment," he told BBC Hereford & Worcester.

John Psaras has been put in charge of the Bucks until the end of the season.

Heeley, who made over 500 appearances for Worcester during his playing career, has held the manager's position at the Blue Square Bet North side since 2010.

His side were looking early season play-off contenders this term, but a bad patch of form has seen them slip off the pace, and they now lie 13 points off fifth place.

But he is confident his side are moving forward despite their poor run.

"We've come a long way, albeit that we are in a bit of a sticky spell at the minute, which is frustrating," Heeley said.

"I still believe we are going in the right direction. A win changes everything - everybody feels better about themselves and all the criticism stops."
