Steve: “Workington will be tough”

Steve Kittrick wants his side to bounce back from Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Colwyn Bay when they face Workington on Monday at Nethermoor.

Goals from Danny Ellis and Craig Hobson had put the Lions ahead but the Welsh side fought back to draw level after Hobson had received a second yellow card.

Kittrick said: “Workington will be tough. They’re a good, organised side. (Manager) Darren (Edmondson) has got them well organised and he wants to play football in the right way.

“We’ve got to forget about Saturday and get on with it. We’ve got to dust ourselves down and get organised for Workington on Monday.”

Workington go into Monday’s fixture still without a win this season and currently sit four places behind the Lions in 16th.

In their previous six meetings, Workington have yet to record a victory over Guiseley, losing five and drawing just once. Jake Lawlor and Zack Dale were on the scoresheet in their last meeting, a 2-0 victory in April.

It will be another tough test for Kittrick’s side as they look to climb the table over the Bank Holiday period before making the trip to Gloucester City on Saturday.
