Manchester next stop

Reds will travel down the M6 on Tuesday as they head to the Flixton area of Manchester to face Trafford (7.45pm).

Trafford lost their opening game on Saturday to a ninetieth minute goal at Tadcaster Albion so will be keen to get points on the board in their first home game.

Workington actually won on their last visit to Shawe View five years ago and their overall record at the ground is now two wins, two draws and two defeats.

Danny Grainger will travel with a similar squad to the one which obtained the opening day victory on Saturday although Ash Kelly is unavailable. He joins the trio who weren’t involved at the weekend – Sam Smith, Owen Bell and Kieran Maguire.

For those who are unable to travel, BBC Radio Cumbria will broadcast live updates during their Sports Night programme while Paul Armstrong will operate the Live Scoreboard via the club’s website.

Trivia: Trafford’s ground is about seven miles from Manchester United, twelve from Manchester City and just over three miles from Salford Red Devils RLFC and the Trafford Centre.

Trafford won 5-1 at Borough Park during the 97-98 season with Reds recording a 4-1 success at Shawe View back in 2000.
