Workington Reds assistant manager Steve Rudd insisted nobody is getting carried away at Borough Park just yet – despite them sitting top of the NLP North West Division with three wins from three games.

Reds face another quick turnaround with tomorrow’s match at City of Liverpool (3pm kickoff) followed by the visit of Colne on Tuesday night (7.45pm kickoff).

It has been a dream start to the season and Danny Grainger’s managerial career so far, with no side having scored more goals than Workington and only one having conceded less.

But the boss and his coaching staff are keeping their feet on the ground and Rudd said they will continue to take it one game at a time as they look to foster a winning mentality and keep their unbeaten league run going as long as possible.

“We keep saying it to the lads and at the end of the day we have won three games,” Rudd said.

“It is a good start and it’s great that people want to get excited about it but you get what you deserve at the end of the season.”

Reds passed a physical test when they beat Pontefract 2-1 on Monday, with Collieries looking to bully their hosts and, although he expects City of Liverpool to look to keep the ball down and play more, Rudd warned that that style of play is something the West Cumbrians will come up against a lot this season.

“No team is going to just let us bring the ball down and pass it about easily,” he added.

“We know what City of Liverpool are going to do and they are a footballing side but it’s been good on our part that the lads have shown that they can do both sides.

“We want to play football but you can’t always do that.”

City of Liverpool have won one of their opening three league games this season while Colne have won one and drawn one of their fixtures so far.
