There’s no pressure on striker Stefan Scott, says Workington Reds boss

No pressure will be placed on the young shoulders of striker Stefan Scott, according to his Workington manager Darren Edmondson.
Scott scored his maiden league goal during Reds’ 1-1 draw with Bishop’s Stortford at the weekend.
The fiery encounter was lit up by a 40-man bust-up, but the other shining light was the performance of Scott, who starred alongside Gareth Arnison.
Despite equalising for Workington in the 18th minute, Edmondson said he will nurture Scott’s future instead of throwing him in at the deep end.
He added: “Stefan has come on for 15 minutes here and there, but he wants to learn and he wants to improve his game all the time.
“He’s a pleasure to have around the first team squad and he will learn by playing games, but there’s no pressure on him.
“We will go at Stefan’s pace, because this is a player who could become a major part of our first team in the coming years.
“He has a great engine about him and he makes good runs, which he showcased against Stortford.
“When the ball is in the penalty area he can finish too, we’ve seen that in training, and now in a league game too.
“But we cannot get carried away with one goal, he has a long way to go.
“We cannot expect too much too soon. We will continue to nurture Stefan so we get the best out of him.”
Scott is available for the trip to Harrogate on Saturday, but will miss the next three matches through suspension.
The hitman was sent off playing for Workington’s reserves meaning he will not be available for the matches with Solihull Moors, Droylsden or Colwyn Bay.
- Workington remain two places and two points above the relegation zone after Solihull beat Hinckley 2-1. Harrogate, who are also in trouble, travel to Yorkshire rivals Guiseley tonight.
