Dougy's double downs the Ducks

“I don’t like Saturdays” could be adopted as Reds’ new theme tune.

All their weekend fixtures this year have failed to produce a win whereas Tuesday encounters under the lights has been a different story.

Shaw Lane were the latest to suffer against Jekyll and Hyde Workington with a vibrant display from the hosts in sharp contrast to previous outing v. Buxton.

“That’s the frustrating thing for us because we know what we are capable of against the better sides,” said Lee Andrews, as unsure as the rest of us which team is going to turn up.

But, from the first whistle, we knew Reds were in good shape and they needed to be against a Shaw Lane outfit who have had a great first season at Step 3.

Despite the amount of possession they enjoyed, and the six second half corners forced, the Barnsley side rarely troubled Aaran Taylor. His one moment of concern saw him push the ball onto the post after being ‘pinned’ at a corner but the ball, fortunately, rebounded into his welcome arms.

And an acrobatic save to push away a late Paul Clayton effort was his only save of note. David Norris saw Shaw Lane’s best other opportunity drift agonisingly wide of Taylor’s left hand post.

At the other end, Scott Allison and Dan Wordsworth both headed wide, a Conor Tinnion shot also missed the target and Allison had the ball in the net, after good link-up play with Steven Rigg, only to have the goal disallowed after Reds’ top scorer strayed off side.

Rigg was denied his first Workington goal at Borough Park by Jake Skelton’s spectacular goal line clearance but the latter was injured in the process.

Dav Symington was also treated after a thumping collision with the advertising hoarding but the player and the perimeter fence were undamaged!

The match winning goals were credited to Matty Douglas although there was a hint of an own-goal with each.

The opener came on the half hour mark when a perfectly flighted Tinnion corner saw Douglas and a Shaw Lane defender contest the ball which finished in the back of Eddie Wilczynski’s net.

They doubled the advantage after sixty nine minutes after Symington’s free kick towards the far post was headed back across goal and ushered over the line by Douglas – his eighth and ninth goals of the season, so far.

Great contributions from 1 – 11 all over the pitch but who’s brave enough to predict the outcome of Saturday’s game at Mickleover?
