Workington Reds manager Danny Grainger believes his squad will attack tomorrow’s top-of-the-table clash with promotion rivals Marine with the right attitude to ensure they take all three points and stay at the top of the NPL North West Division.

The club hopes a big crowd will be at Borough Park to see first take on fourth (3pm kick-off), and Grainger hopes to put on an entertaining performance which will keep any new or returning fans coming back for more.

The boss and his coaching staff have identified the coming weeks as pivotal to their promotion push and they have no doubt their players will continue to play with the freedom and dedication which has seen them start the season so well.

“We know quite a bit about Marine,” Grainger said.

“They’re a good team who have picked up some good results recently so it’s going to be another tough game this weekend.

“We spoke to the boys a couple of weeks ago about this batch of games coming up and said that if we can get a good run of performances and results it will set us up well to attack the rest of the season.

“Our focus hasn’t changed – it never has and we do feed the players a little bit of information to make sure they’re not surprised by the opposition. But if we keep playing the way we have been and doing the right things we won’t be far away.

“You can see the understanding of how we want to play is there.”

While Grainger insists his players are confident but conceded that they must be careful not to let that belief stray into arrogance.

However, with an experienced core of senior players including captain Conor Tinnion, Sam Smith, Dan Wordsworth and others, he believes there is no danger of the team taking opposition lightly.

“There is a fine line between arrogance and complacency,” he said.

“We’ve got too many good lads in that dressing room to make sure we don’t stray into that.

“They approach every single game with the right attitude “

Grainger does not have any fresh injury concerns.
