Joint chairman John Mackay insists Workington Reds are still in with a shout of the play-offs as they head for a crunch tie at Warrington Town tonight.

Reds travel to second place in the table Warrington, with both sides looking to pick up a win to avenge defeats at the weekend.

Reds followed up their midweek victory over Shaw Lane with a 1-0 loss at the hands of Mickleover Sports while Warrington went down 2-0 at Stalybridge Celtic.

But Mackay is positive, saying: "There is no point in dwelling on a game that has gone because you can't affect those three points any more.

"All you can do is take the positives from it and look how you can improve.

"But your emphasis has to shift on to the next game every time and try to put things right."

Reds now have 10 games to go and are sitting in 10th position, eight points behind Farsley Celtic who currently occupy the last play-off berth.

"It is getting harder to make the play-offs," admitted Mackay. "But it is still not impossible and the teams above us are not all winning.

"You can never say never and we will keep on fighting.

"Every team in this league is fighting for something, some to stay in the league, others making sure of a job next year.

"Everybody, at whatever level, is trying their best to do their best."

Warrington have one of the best defensive records in the league, second only to table-toppers Altrincham.

But, after putting eight past Altrincham in two games, Mackay is confident that his side can do the same to Warington.

Gari Rowntree and Jamie Mellen will be available to come back into the side after missing Saturday's game due to work commitments.

And joint manager Lee Andrews will also assess Jordan Holt to see if he is ready to return from injury.
