Whitby Take On Workington

Whitby Town travel to in-form Workington this Saturday, with just two separating the two sides.

The Blues returned to second spot after leapfrogging rivals Buxton following their dramatic encounter at The Turnbull Ground last weekend. 

Town won 4-2 with the Derbyshire visitors having two men sent off in four minutes. 

Only league leaders Blyth Spartans are in better over their past six games than Whitby's opponents at the weekend. 

Workington have five wins and one defeat, which came to Spartans themselves.

The sides have already met twice before this season, both at the Turnbull Ground, with Luke Bythway's header securing a 1-1 draw, in mid-October's league encounter, while Chris Hardy's men came from 2-0 down inside 20 minutes to win 4-3, in the FA Trophy, thanks to Kieran Weledji's winner.

Hardy is likely to have centre-half Andrew May back in contention, while striker Mikey Roberts remains on loan at Guisborough Town.

Last season's corresponding league encounter saw the Blues lose 3-1, but gain revenge in the Trophy with a 3-0 success, also at Workington's Borough Park.

A supporters' coach leaves the Turnbull Ground at 9.45am on Saturday, with seats still just £10 each.
