Workington Reds' boss Edmondson has sleepless nights over relegation

Workington Reds boss Darren Edmondson admitted he’s had sleepless nights trying to predict this season’s outcome.

Edmondson said this week will be awful as he prepares his side to face Worcester in what promises to be 90 nerve-shredding minutes.

A win for Workington would guarantee their survival, but matching the results of Hinckley United, Harrogate Town and Solihull Moors would also keep the Borough Park side up.

New dad Edmondson said: “It’s not my daughter keeping me up, it’s trying to work out how this weekend is going to pan out.

“The worst part is, every time I think about Stalybridge v Hinckley, Corby v Harrogate and Solihull v Halifax, the results change. It’s so difficult to try and work it out.

“It’s going to be an awful week but, first and foremost, we have to prepare ourselves for what promises to be a massive game.

“It’s still in our hands though. We are a point above the relegation zone and know that a win will secure our status.”

Edmondson bemoaned missed chances as Reds drew 0-0 with Histon to take their unbeaten run to seven matches.

He said: “To go seven unbeaten when the pressure is this high is incredible.

“The reason we didn’t get three points is because our want and determination spoilt our play.

“We need to relax when we’re on the ball and not snatch at shots. We’re playing with nerves and that’s cost us slightly, but I cannot fault the lads for their willing.

“We’re in this position now and we have to go and do what’s needed. It won’t be easy though.”
