LEAD­ERS MUST WORK IT BACK

WORKINGTON 2 RUSHALL OLYMP 0

The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK NPL PREMIER - By John Walsh

RUSHALL Olympic lost the league lead­er­ship with a dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance.

They were out-played for long pe­ri­ods by Workington.

Workington dom­i­nated the first half and could have been more than two goals clear.

They had a great chance in the sec­ond minute but Jack Ryan couldn’t beat keeper Jose Veiga from ten yards.

Veiga then made an ex­cel­lent save to deny Rob Wilson.

The break­through came with two goals in as many min­utes, scored by Workington’s best two play­ers.

Vet­eran de­fender Kyle May went for­ward to reach a free­kick from Conor Tin­nion and head down into the net.

Then on 37 min­utes they dou­bled the lead. James Earl drove into the area and a low cross was flicked on by Nathan Water­stone to Tin­nion who picked his spot.

Rushall had never looked dan­ger­ous and re­lied heav­ily on some su­perb de­fen­sive work by Sam Whit­tall.

They looked live­lier on the restart but were hit by a red card on 53 min­utes.

Mid­fielder Lee Smith was sent off.

They rarely threat­ened af­ter that al­though Jazz Luckie had an op­por­tu­nity from the edge of the area.
