Workington player-coach Gavin Skelton is looking on the bright side despite the Skrill North club plummeting to the bottom of the table.

The Reds were stunned by a late winner from Leamington’s Ricky Johnson last Saturday which lifted the newly-promoted side to eighteeth.

The result was Workington’s third successive loss in the league. They had taken the lead through striker Joe Jackson but ended up losing at Borough Park 2-1.

Skelton said: “It was disappointing and a difficult one to take but we have to get on with it. It was disappointing to lose in the last minute. It was a sore one.

“People might say the performance wasn’t great but the lads put in a great shift. In the last 10 minutes, I thought there was only side who could have won it.

“I think our luck will even itself out by the end of the season. Being bottom of the league is a double whammy but we are only one result off being mid-table.

“We just have to work hard and, hopefully, we will get that break.”

Reds can set aside their poor league form for a week and concentrate on a big FA Cup clash away in the North East on Saturday.

They travel to Guisborough Town, who play in the Ebac Northern League First Division, in the FA Cup Third Qualifying Round.
