Workington kept their 10 point lead at the top of the Northern North West Division with seven games to play.

The gap was maintained thanks to their 4-2 win at Tadcaster on Saturday, accompanied with nearest rivals Ramsbottom, beating third-placed Marine through an 88th minute winner.

Afterwards, manager Danny Grainger reflected on the game, and the Coronavirus situation.

He said: “Things off the field are changing all the time and decisions [on a possible suspension] are out of our control.

“We just have to be as professional as we can be, carrying on as normal until we are told we cannot play.”

Reds are due to host Runcorn on Saturday, but there are a number of midweek games to be fitted in.

Grainger felt Reds were not at their best against Tadcaster, but was pleased at how they came back from conceding an early goal and having a 2-1 lead taken from them late on.

He said: “I don’t know what it was but there was a strange feeling about the game today, probably because of what’s happening with the coronavirus.

“We didn't play well first half and I had to do a bit of shouting in the dressing room.

“In fact we'd been fortunate to go in level. ‘Brocky’ made a brilliant goal-line clearance and then ‘Tinners’ showed why I made him captain.

“Then in the second half he showed again what he is about by scoring two very good goals.”

Whatever happens to the season, Nathan Waterston will have to spend time on the sidelines.

He fell awkwardly, dislocating his shoulder, the same one he hurt while playing at Barrow and required an operation.

After hospital treatment he returned home and will find out this week just how long his recovery may take.
