Workington Reds players warned over complacency at Hinckley
Last updated at 11:38, Friday, 22 February 2013
Workington Reds’ heroics against promotion-chasing Altrincham and Chester will count for nothing if they lose at stricken Hinckley tomorrow.
The league’s bottom side have won just once this season and are cast adrift at the foot of the table.
With a points deduction for failing to control their finances, their on-the-pitch problems have seen them concede 95 times in just 28 matches.
On nine occasions, teams have scored five or more goals against them, with Altrincham winning 8-0.
Reds boss Darren Edmondson said: “After the heroics against Chester, there were smiles on faces in the dressing room, but the lads were shattered.
“But we have to put the same effort in.
“Picking up four points from teams going for promotion will mean nothing if we go to Hinckley and lose.
“The performance must be right, and we cannot go there expecting to win.
“Hinckley have brought in reinforcements in recent weeks. They are fighting, but it’s a game we have to win to make sure we keep looking up the table, instead of down.”
Gari Rowntree was Workington’s star man against runaway leaders Chester.
