Workington Reds must face the prospect of another midweek trip in a tough run-in to the end of the season, after their clash with North Ferriby was called off on Saturday.

The Borough Park pitch was waterlogged and after a pitch inspection the game was postponed, with Reds now waiting a new date for the key Northern Premier League fixture.

Chairman John Mackay admitted it was a blow that the game did not go ahead against the bottom of the table side but declared Reds will continue in their fight against relegation.

“We now have to wait and see when the league rearranges the game,” he said. “We obviously would have preferred to have got the game on on Saturday but the pitch was unplayable.

“We have had a lot of rain in the last seven to 10 days and we don’t have the best drainage at present so we will just have to prepare for another Tuesday night.

“This was a game we wanted three points from. We won comfortably down there and expected to win at home. But thankfully Mickleover and others around them also lost on Saturday so we haven’t lost any ground.

“We are still in there with a chance and although the fewer games we have left, the harder it gets, we are still confident we can get out of there and stay up.

“We still have North Ferriby and Mickleover to play so they are key games - absolute must wins for us.”
