A near full-strength Workington Reds team will travel to Lancaster City tonight as they look to revitalise their season with a win in the Integro League Cup.

The competition has provided an opportunity for fringe players so far this season but, with Reds having been out of action for more than a week, tonight (7.45pm kick-off) should see a strong side take to the field.

Dan Wordsworth will miss out with a chest infection and Anthony Wright is still a few weeks away from a return but Josh Calvert has a chance to make the squad.

Joint manager Lee Andrews said: “I think we’ll probably play a strong team because we haven’t played or been able to train much recently.

“We’ll try to give them a decent 90 minutes, everyone’s fine and raring to go and wants to get back out playing.

“We keep saying one win and things will change and start going for us again, so it’s been frustrating to have to sit and wait to get that.

“We want to win and progress and hopefully that will carry into the league.”

Reds are still chasing their first league win of 2018 and Andrews believes a good result tomorrow can give them momentum to take into the home game against Stalybridge Celtic on Saturday.

He said: “I think it happened earlier on in the season, when we were stuttering along and we had a couple of games in midweek, Sam Joel scored four goals in the cup and it seemed to give us a massive boost.

“It depends on what team Lancaster put out because we’ve done it ourselves in the earlier rounds putting a different team out, but I think they’ve also had some games off.

“I’m sure they’ll want to go into the game to win.”
