Archer’s on target for the Pitmen
HEDNESFORD TOWN 2 WORKINGTON 0
TWO second-half goals saw Hednesford Town pick up their first home league victory of the season against a Workington side who remain pointless on the road.
The opening exchanges were quiet but it was Workington who had the first chance when Jason Walker shot wide after breaking through in the 14th minute.
Although Hednesford forced a succession of setpieces they could not find an effort on target meanwhile goalkeeper Josef Bursik saved from Connor Tinnion’s low effort.
The visitors saw a good chance come and go when Daniel Wordsworth planted a header over the crossbar while Bursik was called into action again right on the stroke of halftime to deny Kieran Maguire.
Hednesford started the second half stronger and after Dan Cockerline and Josh Craddock went close they took the lead when Matt Dodd picked out Lewis Archer who slide home at the far post.
The lead was doubled in the 65th minute when Hednesford were awarded a penalty that Jed Davies converted.
Walker had the visitors’ best late chance but the hosts held on.
