Workington Reds boss upbeat despite defeats

Workington Reds boss Darren Edmondson said his players did not deserve to lose to in-form Stalybridge and plans an assault on Stafford this weekend.
The Borough Park club narrowly lost 2-1 at Bowers Fold but had chances to change the result. Unfortunately, they failed to hit the back of the net and Celtic won.
Edmondson said: “It’s the same story that we have got into good areas but once again failed to score. It’s frustrating but I’d be more worried if we hadn’t created anything and lost 5-0.
“The encouraging thing is that we are creating chances for ourselves and eventually they will be put away.
“The misses may go down as lack of confidence, luck or other things. We need to sort that out and make sure we get back on track this weekend.
“We have a chance to win the game and score some goals and that’s what I want us to do.
“Stafford are struggling but we cannot allow them the space to create themselves. We must go at it from the off.
“Starting matches in the right way is crucial and if we do that then we’ll be in control.”
Workington are a young side, full of inexperience, but with the likes of Kyle May, Lee Andrews and David Hewson, this team can compete for a top seven spot.
Edmondson said: “Our aim has to be to finish as high as possible. Ideally, we’d break into the top seven. That bunch of clubs are a few points above us but that has to be our target.”
