A point for eleventh-placed Worksop Town’s caretaker manager Craig Spink yesterday,but it took a late goal from the Tigers to deny Albion Sports after draw at Throstle Nest yesterday-and Craig felt that a draw was probably the right outcome, writes Colin Muncie.
Sam Denton put the Lions in front on four minutes and the crowd of 93 in Farsley must have thought the game was up-but up popped Charlie Baird with a leveller for Worksop just before the final whistle.
Craig told the Bootiful game that the weather and the playing surface didn’t help. “The conditions were difficult today” he said “It was quite a hard pitch to play on as well. We conceded from an early free kick -the lads held their hands up for the defending of the set piece. After the goal we came out of the traps and I thought we created a lot of chances. It was a game of two halves due to the wind, we created bags of chances in the second half and I thought we could’ve taken all three points, after saying that I was very happy with the performance today”.
Craig was happy to welcome back a couple of key figures to the side “It was nice to see Jack Barnett back in the side, and obviously Jed Phillips as well who pulled up during the warm up last Saturday. We had plenty of experience with the lads on the pitch. We could’ve changed it but I was more than happy with the point”.
Craig paid tribute to the travelling Tigers “Fantastic support today again from our fans. It’s a long way up here in windy conditions, it was freezing cold out there and they stuck by us -and they were still chanting after 95 minutes. They’re a passionate bunch, there’s a lot of pride there and they love the club to bits.”
“They just want us to do well- and I can’t thank them enough”.
