Drought over as Reds pull through


The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By John Walsh

WORKINGTON had to come from be­hind to earn their first league win since Septem­ber 1.

They took the lead on 20 min­utes when Conor Tin­nion fired home with a low shot from 16 yards out.

Town keeper Josef Bur­sik twice de­nied Kieran Maguire with im­por­tant stops be­fore the vis­i­tors came back to lead by half-time.

Full-back Nathan Fox got for­ward down the left and a low drive beat Aaron Taylor to go in off the post.

Then in time added on, Sam Grif­fiths forced home a cor­ner to put the Pit­men in front.

But Workington re­sponded well, in­spired by hard-work­ing cen­tre for­ward Ja­son Walker, though he was un­able to get on the score­sheet.

The equaliser came on 55 min­utes when home skip­per Gari Rown­tree fired home from the edge of the area af­ter a cor­ner was par­tially cleared.

Three min­utes later, Rown­tree’s long ball found Scott Al­li­son, who turned his man clev­erly be­fore fir­ing across Bur­sik into the bot­tom cor­ner.

And the vic­tory was clinched seven min­utes from the end when Jor­dan Holt got on the end of a good cross from Maguire to steer past Bur­sik.
