Workington Reds boss Lee Andrews is expecting a totally different type of game when Mickleover Sports head to Borough Park on Saturday.

After a rough and tumble encounter with Stourbridge at the weekend, Andrews believes a lot more football will be on display this weekend.

Reds clinched an injury-time winner over Stourbridge to bag three crucial Evo-Stik Premier League points, and Andrews hopes they can continue their form against Mickleover.

“Mickleover are a team that like to get the ball down and play,” said Andrews.

“The manager still plays and he likes to get it down and pass the ball, so that might suit us a little better.

“Hopefully, we can see our lads going forward and creating more chances.”

This is the second in a string of home games for Workington leading up to Christmas.

And Andrews admits it could be a crucial time for Reds as they look to go into the New Year in good shape.

“We’ve got a good run of home games now so, if we can get a decent points return from that, it potentially sets us up nicely going into the new year,” added Andrews.

“Then, we can kick on and try and do better than we did last season.”

Andrews said the team spirit in the Reds camp was high after the Stourbridge win. And he praised his strong defensive line-up for their efforts throughout the game, which left both sides knowing they had been in a tough game.

“We knew Stourbridge were going to be a strong, physical team and when they put the ball down, they were in the middle of the pitch for most of the game," Andrews said.

“But our two centre halves were fantastic. They dealt with most things and were battered and bruised after the game.

“We have a few battered and bruised bodies which you expect after a game like that but we have a week to recover and then we go again on Saturday.”
