We must improve our home form, says Workington Reds boss

Workington Reds must improve their faltering home form, insists boss Darren Edmondson.
The Borough Park faithful haven’t celebrated a victory since edging past struggling Droylsden in October.
Since then, Reds have lost three – including the 6-1 humiliation at the hands of Bradford Park Avenue – and drawn two.
Edmondson is aware of the problem, and said he was working tirelessly to put the record straight today against Oxford City (3pm).
Workington’s patchy home form reads: P11, W4, D2, L5 – stats that are not good enough, according to Edmondson, who said: “We have to start righting the wrongs.
“Our home record is not good enough.
“To not win at home in five matches is poor, but Oxford come here with a similar away record.
“It’s going to be a tough match against a side trying to rediscover their form away from home.
“It’s frustrating for everyone. I want to win every game. So do the players, directors and supporters. Having a decent home record is crucial, and we are working to put it right.”
Workington will once again have new recruits Joseph St Juste, Rod Owusu Andrews and Joe McGee available for selection, with David Hewson also pushing for a place. Mark Boyd could also feature as Reds’ walking wounded start to return to action.
Edmondson said: “Players like Mark are important to us because of their experience.”
While, yesterday it was revealed that striker Jordan Connerton is just weeks away from a first-team recall following three months off with a hernia.
