The Tigers got back to winning ways at The Yorkshire NuBuilds Stadium.

The Tigers took the lead on nine minutes thanks to Danny Patterson who coolly finished from twelve yards after Matt Reay was bundled over in the box.

Tomas Poole doubled the lead before the break with a sweet volley to make up for his earlier miss.

The Tigers held their own in the second half as they kept the ball well to limit the Wells’ chances and to confirm Town’s place in the next round of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup.

After the game, Media reporter Devon Cash caught up with skipper Jamie Price and Man of the Match Tomas Poole;

Jamie Price: “Well obviously we were, as a team, very disappointed and gutted with how we were on Saturday. They had good quality but we helped them because of mistakes. To come here on a Tuesday night after Saturday where the lads were a bit down, we got our heads together and knew we needed a reaction. We set up in a different shape but we bit into it and we worked our socks off as a team. We took it on board, stuck together and I think you can see it working. We got the result, 2-0, it was nice to get a clean sheet and we limited them to long distance shots. We were solid at the back and solid in midfield and were dangerous on attacks which we will score goals with the players we have got and the quality we can show.

“We knew it would be tough, Hemsworth are a good team with some very good players and a good manager, they tried to play the right way and caused us problems at times. But as I said, we kept our shape and it doesn’t really matter who we play against, we take the approach that anybody can beat anybody in this league and for that to happen it’ll be down to our own mistakes but then again we can beat anyone. We knew they were top of the league and this and that but we know what were like and we can beat anyone. Whether they’re top or bottom, we will approach every game in the exact same way and make sure we work as hard as we can and keep our shape as tonight showed. Lots of positives that we can take into Saturday.

“It’s a real honour to be a captain and to be it at a club like this is special. The gaffer came to me and said he wanted me to take the role which I said yes and it’s been an absolute joy for me. The lads have taken to me brilliantly and when I’m out, we’ve got lads like Patto or Woolley who can step up and do a good job. It’s more of a case of getting eleven captains out there but it’s a real honour to put the armband on and lead this club.

“We approach next week exactly the same as today and make sure the attitude is right, we’ve got to be wary that we can be beat by anybody and we will only be beaten by our own mistakes so we need to keep our heads and know we are good enough to beat any team. As long as we keep solid at the back, limit them, and get it to the players who can score us the goals needed. It’ll be tough, Winsford will be decent, but we’ve got good players, we will stick together and go up there and get the business done and get into the next round”

Tomas Poole: “We weren’t at the races on Saturday. I know they are a better team than us and two leagues above but I thought it was right to come here today and play well and work hard and as long as you work hard, the results will come and I thought we did that tonight.

“Everyone wants to play but we’re in it together whether we come off the bench or start. Obviously I want to start every game but yeah I’m happy with the goal but I’m glad we’ve got the win at the end of the day.

“To be honest, I had to make up for the one I missed ten minutes before it but I took a touch, just made sure I hit it well and it went into the bottom corner”.

Worksop next travel to Winsford United on Saturday, 15th September in the FA Vase.
