Worksop Town will look to continue their fantastic run of victories against Garforth Town on Wednesday at Sandy Lane.

The Tigers have scored 15 goals in three games and confidence is flowing through Ryan Hindley and his players’ veins after producing some very aggressive and dominating football, which has proved just too much for like’s of Clipstone, Harrogate and Aylestone in recent games.

Our visitors for tomorrow night currently sit 13th in the league with Worksop riding high in 6th place. The Miners haven’t won a league game since 15th August defeating Penistone Church 2-0, however, Garforth won last Saturday in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase beating Holker Old Boys 3-1 at home.

The Tigers have only lost one league game at home this season by losing to Albion Sports 2-0, on the other hand the Miners are still to register an away league victory in the league this season.

Garforth striker Lee Turner has already notched nine goals this season scoring a hat trick against Clipstone in their first home league game of the season. Worksop man of the moment Alec Denton has scored five goals in two games making him the danger man to look out for going into tomorrow’s game, Micah Bishop and Conor Higginson also come into the game hoping to continue their brilliant form. Current Tiger and former Garforth forward Mark Simpson scored a hatful for tomorrows opponents last season whilst also making himself a record breaker, he will be especially looking forward to showing his former employers what they’re missing.

Worksop inflicted a convincing double over the Yorkshire side last season, we smashed Garforth 5-1 at Sandy Lane in the final match of August last season with goals coming from Steve Woolley, Kyle Jordan, Richard Adams, Adam Somes and Adam Scott with Simpson pulling a goal back for Garforth just before half-time. The reverse fixture was another resounding 4-1 victory for the Tigers, Leon Loftus, Adam Scott and a Kyle Jordan brace saw us take all 3 points back home with us, another consolation goal from a prolific Simpson completed the scoring on the night.

The Miners have yet to steal a point off us since the 2014/15 season so the omens are good to hopefully gain all three points Wednesday night. The league form is good, confidence is flowing, the fans are happy and the head to head favours the Tigers so hopefully there will be a big gate and another great atmosphere like usual at Sandy Lane to help drive the lads over the line for another victory.
