Workington Reds boss Darren Edmondson: I gave players a roasting

Workington Reds boss Darren Edmondson admitted after Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Hinckley he had given his players their biggest half-time roasting of the season.
A goal right on half-time by Jonny Wright, to give Reds the lead, did not change Edmondson’s half- time team talk.
“I wasn’t happy with what I had seen in the first-half, even though we had gone in front. Hinckley wanted it more than we did and after the way we had played on Tuesday that was totally unacceptable.
“We had shown against Chester how we can play but it shouldn’t take a sending-off or the fact you are playing the League leaders to get you going.
“You never take any team for granted and I felt that was happening at Hinckley. Give them some credit, I thought they played with a lot of spirit and gave us a few problems.
“I have to say that I would have been happy with five points from then run of three games we have just had, but perhaps not from the way it worked out.
“Wee had a great chance to finish-off the week on a high with another win but we couldn’t take it and didn’t deserve to by the way we played,” said Edmondson.
Jonny Wright had given Reds the lead in the minute of added time at the end of the first-half. But Hinckley really went for it after the change-round.
