Kai Nugent helped Workington Reds to a latest win – but will play AGAINST them this week.

The Carlisle United loan teenager got his latest start for Danny Grainger’s side in their 3-0 win against Hanley Town in NPL West.

But after he produced another promising display for the west Cumbrians, he will line up against them for his parent club tomorrow.

That’s because Carlisle take on Reds at Borough Park in the Fred Conway Cumberland Cup quarter-final.

And Blues boss Paul Simpson has confirmed that Nugent will wear blue rather than red in the rearranged tie.

“He will play for us,” said Simpson.

“It’s an opportunity for me to be able to see Kai and see what he’s about.

“From the reports I’m getting, he’s doing really well for Workington, but he will be playing for Carlisle United and hopefully he shows us what he’s all about.

“It’s a big test for him. It’s a test of his character to have to do this because he’s going to come up against lads who he is playing with every week.

“We’re his bread and butter, this is where his contract is, so we’ll see.”

Nugent, 17, came close to a goal in the first half on Saturday before Reds took control with second-half goals from sub Lewis Reilly, Reuben Jerome and Reilly again, the latter goal seeing Nugent involved in the build-up.

The second-year youth team player is on a work experience loan with Reds, who are third in NPL West.

Nugent was the only one of United’s young loanees to taste victory this weekend.

Max Kilsby was on the losing side as Annan Athletic suffered a dramatic late defeat to Stenhousemuir.

The Blues defender played the full game as Peter Murphy’s side led 2-1 after 51 minutes, thanks to Tommy Goss and Dom Docherty goals either side of a Nat Wedderburn effort for the visitors.

But Matt Yates levelled for Stenhousemuir and then Ross Forbes struck at the death at Galabank.

It was a 22nd league outing for Kilsby, with Murphy’s side now fourth in Scottish League Two, having been overtaken by their opponents.

In Northern Premier League Premier Division, Sam Fishburn got only a brief appearance as Morpeth Town were beaten at the striker’s former loan club Lancaster City.

Fishburn, 19, was an 88th-minute substitute as former Plymouth Argyle and Leeds United veteran David Norris, 42, put Lancaster in front.

A penalty from ex-Workington Reds man Nic Evangelinos doubled the Dolly Blues’ lead before a Matty Cornish consolation for Morpeth, who are 18th in the table.

There was no game for Gretna 2008 and their on-loan Blues winger Lewis Bell this weekend, while United youth team player Dan Hill was in the Cleator Moor Celtic starting line-up for their home clash against Atherton LR in North West Counties First Division North.

The west Cumbrians went down to a 2-1 defeat to the mid-table outfit, and remain bottom of the table, Darren Little’s penalty proving a consolation for Brian Dawson’s men.
