Workington Reds manager Danny Grainger believes his table-topping team must keep doing the right things and their luck will turn, starting when they welcome Brighouse Town to Borough Park tomorrow (3pm kick-off).

Ninth-placed Town have been strong at home in the NPL North West Division so far this season but results on the road have been less than impressive.

Reds also have an unbeaten home league record to protect as league leaders and will hope that if they produce a performance similar to the one which saw them unfortunately lose out in the FA Trophy against Farsley Celtic last Saturday, they will start to get the rub of the green.

“We created enough chances to win the game comfortably last weekend – and with a little bit of luck and composure we could quite easily have done so,” Grainger said.

“We haven’t had the rub of the green; there have been some decisions which could have gone the other way and unfortunately we haven’t been getting them.

“But we just get on with it, we don’t sulk and we’ll keep doing the right things and if we do then I believe it will turn.

“We’ve always had a reaction to defeats this season and that’s what we expect on Saturday.

“I’ve said to the players to take out their frustrations on Brighouse.”

Reds could be set to welcome midfielder Brad Carroll back into the squad for the first time since the FA Trophy trip to Droylsden on October 12 tomorrow after he returned to training this week, but Grainger admitted he will be careful not to throw him in if he feels it is a game too soon.

Gari Rowntree is also back in training but will not be in action this weekend as he looks to get back up to speed before returning to the pitch.

One player who should be involved is Carlisle United teenager Taylor Charters, who has joined on a one-month loan deal from the Blues.

The 18-year-old Whitehaven-born midfielder will be available to feature today after training with Reds on Thursday night.

Charters has trained regularly with United’s first team and has scored for the club’s under-18s side in its opening games.

Reds boss Danny Grainger, the former Blues skipper, said: “I think he is a fantastic talent and has a great attitude.

"I’m looking forward to seeing him on the pitch.

“He is a player I have seen develop over the last couple of seasons and I think he can have a big impact with us.”

Meanwhile, Reds are set to host Mossley in the Integro League Cup on December 10 (7.45pm kick-off).
