Workington and Marine go head to head in the FA Cup on Saturday – the top two teams in Northern Premier League West after two games.

Borough Park will stage the tie of the round with last season’s competition giant-killers offering a stern test for the Reds.

But in collecting their second win of the season on Tuesday, beating City of Liverpool 3-0, Reds gave an assured and very impressive performance.

They dominated the game virtually from start to finish and but for some excellent work by the visiting keeper, the final tally could have been doubled.

Theo Roberts made two outstanding saves to keep out rockets from Dav Symington and he also did really well to tip over another thunderous effort from Brad Carroll.

Sam Smith and Nico Evangelinos both shot just wide while probably the best chance fell to Carroll, who scuffed his shot from close range.

The breakthrough came two minutes after the restart when Symington rifled home a free-kick over the wall from just outside the box.

When Carroll was pushed in the box on 54 minutes referee Chris Joyce pointed to the spot and Evangelinos sent Roberts the wrong way to double the lead.

The third goal came after 75 minutes. A deep corner was headed back into the mix by Smith and his central defensive partner Dan Wordsworth was there to head home from close range.

Manager Chris Willcock was well satisfied with the performance and looking forward to a tilt at the FA Cup on Saturday.

“It was different to Saturday where we had to grind-out a result," he said. "They came to get the ball down and play out from the back and I thought that helped us be more expansive. We played some good stuff and although we should probably have been in front by half-time I felt once we got the lead we were pretty comfortable.

“Dav’s strike from the free-kick was top class and coming so soon after half-time it set us up for a commanding second-half.

“It was good to see 604 in the crowd and if we can improve on that for the FA Cup game I am sure it will be a big help to the team.”

Reds host Marine in the FA Cup on Saturday and a week later they meet again in the League, also at Borough Park.
