We must work hard to restore fans' trust - Workington Reds boss
Last updated at 17:16, Tuesday, 13 November 2012
Workington Reds’ star names will all play in the Cumberland Cup, if tonight’s match with Penrith goes ahead (7.30pm).
The third round tie is due to take place at The World Group Stadium, but with persistent rain flooding the pitch, the game is in doubt.
Boss Darren Edmondson said his entire first team would be involved in a bid to get back to winning ways.
“If the game goes ahead, the first team is taking part,” he said.
“We let ourselves down against Ossett Town, and although this is not the FA Trophy, it’s a chance to win a game of football, and progress in the County Cup.”
Edmondson apologised to Reds fans after the Ossett defeat, and added: “Losing to Ossett was extremely disappointing.
“I’m still getting over Saturday’s defeat and I know the players are hurting.
“We let ourselves down, and now we have to work hard to restore the fans’ trust.”
David Hewson (knee) and Mark Boyd (calf) are both doubtful.
- Due to a waterlogged pitch, the game was postponed this afternoon.
