Referee R Dadley
This was Mickleovers’ first home league game in 8 weeks due to the postponements brought about by the recent bad weather, and they were keen to put on a show for their football starved fans. They certainly did that.
The 1-0 scoreline was not an accurate reflection of the magnitude as they dominated the majority of the match.
With Andy Dales firing at goal every time that the opportunity arose and Louis Briscoe making chances as well it was a surprise that the game was goal less at the half time break.
The only goal of the game came six minutes after the restart. Captain Tom Burgin heading home from a John McGrath left wing corner.
Workington tried to find a way back into the game but Lewis King in the home goal was a virtual spectator with the visitors wayward in their shooting.
Mickleover had further chances but were unable to make them pay, however, both teams knew at the final whistle that the result was right if not the actual scoreline.
