Two goals in the opening 8 minutes set Worsbrough Bridge Athletic well on their way to 3 points yesterday at East Yorkshire Carnegie, but after the home side had got back on level terms, it took a Jack Mawson goal straight after half time to claim the points for the visitors, writes Ian Robinson.
Briggers Manager Lee Morris thought it was an odd game but was delighted with his teams second half showing.
“It’s a fixture that I’m happy to come away from with 3 points as places like Carnegie are always potential banana skin fixtures. They are fighting for their life to stay in this division, so to come here and get 3 points is a great achievement. About 12 months ago we came here and won to stay up, so 12 months on and to be in with a massive shout of the top two is unbelievable.”
“The game was a frustrating one as we went 2-0 up without really playing well, but fair play to Carnegie who drew level and we were lucky to get in at half time at 2-2. We re-shaped at half time, totally dominated the second half and could have had 5 or 6 goals. With 12 games remaining we are in a great position to have a go at that top two.”
