Workington Reds will continue their NPL North West Division title push at home to ninth-placed Mossley in the right frame of mind tomorrow, insists manager Danny Grainger.

And the Reds boss has full confidence in his players that they will approach the game at Borough Park (3pm kick-off) as they have done all season and that their team spirit can continue to help them get the results they need to chase down current league leaders Ramsbottom.

“At the start of the season that was something we spoke about,” he said. “Everyone has to be pulling in the same direction.

“It doesn’t matter how good you are as individuals; if you’re not doing that you’re probably not going to be successful.

“We had targets at the start of the season and our home record was also identified as very important for us to be successful.

“The home form has been unbelievable and to be honest we’re still probably a bit disappointed not to have won a few more of them.

“We don’t change our approach whether it’s home or away but for some reason it seems to have clicked a little bit more at Borough Park.”

While Mossley are yet to win a league game away from home and have one of the leakiest defences in the division with 46 goals conceded in 27 games – more than double the 21 Reds have let in in 25 games – Grainger believes that does not necessarily tell the whole story of their campaign.

“I think when you look at them, they are a slightly different team to the one their record says they are.

“They have had a change of manager and they’ve beat Marske and Marine recently as well as winning against us earlier in the season so we know they are not a team to be taken lightly.

“We know they’ve got players in their ranks that can cause us trouble so we need to make sure we do our jobs.”

It will be touch-and-go whether captain Conor Tinnion can feature, with the skipper still on the mend from an injury sustained a few weeks ago.
