Workington v North Ferriby United
Ferriby travel to Cumbria to play struggling Workington on Tuesday. The Villagers will be looking for a win to regain top spot in the Skrill North.
Workington are bottom of the division and face a tough fight to avoid relegation. With both sides needing the points for different reasons, it will be a tough game.
Ferriby were left feeling frustrated after Saturday’s defeat at Guiseley. It was one of those games when very little went Ferriby’s way. Nathan Jarman’s penalty and Danny Emerton’s disallowed goal were, perhaps the most crucial points but Ferriby had little luck. Guiseley keeper Steve Drench was man-of-the-match and this probably summed-up The Villagers’ fortune. Whn Drench was not making saves, his defence was desperately clearing the ball as every loose baal seemed to go to a Guiseley player.
Manager Billy Heath will be expecting his side to return from Workington with all three points. He knows his players have the professionalism and strength of character to respond to the revers at Guiseley.
Heath commented, “It was a disappointing result and a frustrating game. In many respects it was a good performance. We created opportunities to score and defended well. We were the only side that looked like scoring in the second-half. Anyway, we go to Workington on Tuesday looking to win and to put the pressure back on Telford.”
Heath will definitely be without Matt Wilson, Gregg Anderson and Jon D’Laryea. Dean Lisles and Dany Emerton are doubtful due to injury abut Adam Nicklin may return to the squad.
