Workington Reds v South Shields - Match postponed due to a waterlogged pitch

Workington Reds captain Gari Rowntree is demanding more from himself and his team-mates if the club is to survive in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.

Reds are set to host South Shields at Borough Park this afternoon (3pm ko) looking to spark a revival which could lift them out of relegation trouble.

But Rowntree believes they need to show an improvement on recent performances if they are to cause an upset against the promotion-chasing Mariners and edge closer to fourth-bottom Bamber Bridge.

He said: "We all have to step up and put everything on the pitch, myself included.

"It's just trying to get everything out of everyone.

"Every single game is massive now, there's no denying that and the lads need to get ourselves up for all of them no matter what the conditions or who the opposition is.

"We've got to get back to what we know we can do.

"Every week we turn up and give our best and that's what we're going to keep doing."

Despite Reds' struggles this season they are not cut adrift at the bottom of the league and, with games in hand on the teams above them, the picture could quickly change to a more positive outlook with two or three wins.

"You can't panic, that's probably the worst thing you can do," Rowntree said.

"It's been a very up and down season and a difficult one for everyone but we've got 10 games to try to change that.

"South Shields are a good side but anything can happen in this league and sometimes it comes down to who wants it more on the day.

"We should be setting our stall out at home and you've got to be confident you can get out of it because if you aren't you might as well call it a day.

"If we can get a couple of wins it gives us a big lift."

Meanwhile, bottom side North Ferriby United have been wound up less than a week after they were due to visit Borough Park for a game which was postponed.

The league has not yet confirmed what action will be taken regarding the club's results this season and their remaining fixtures.

A club statement said: "North Ferriby United was wound up this morning.

"The club will not now be allowed to play any more fixtures, therefore tomorrow’s game and the remaining fixtures will not be fulfilled.

"It will be placed in the hands of a liquidator.

"The club would like to thank supporters and sponsors for their support over the years."
