North Ferriby United v Workington
The Skrill North
Tuesday 17 September
Ferriby welcome Workington to the Eon Visual Media Stadium on Tuesday for a rare midweek home fixture in the Skrill North.
Workington have lost four times and are six points behind Ferriby. They have scored eight goals and conceded 10 in their seven games so far.
Saturday’s defeat at Solihull was a harsh result for Ferriby. The Villagers controlled much of the game but wasted a string of chances. As a result they paid the price with Solihull scoring with their only two shots, including a penalty, on target.
Whilst the result at Solihull was disappointing, Ferriby did create chances without being at their best. They have not been overawed by any of their opponents this season and have shown that they have the ability and attitude to compete in the Skrill North. The defeat reforced the point that lapses will be punished at this level
Manager Billy Heath will be expecting his side to bounce back from Saturday’s game just as they did after the earlier loss at Harrogate. After Saturday’s game Heath commented, “We controlled much of the game and looked the likely winner for much of it. But you always think that missed chances will come back to haunt you and that is what happened today. We should have had something from the game but hopefully we will learn from today. The Workington game provides an early chance for us to bounce back.””
Striker Anthony Wilson serves the second of his three match suspension but, otherwise, Heath should have a full squad to chooses from.
