WARRINGTON Town are more than wary of the threat posed by relegation-threatened Workington ahead of their Evo-Stik Premier Division clash tonight, manager Paul Carden says.

Yellows make the trip to Cumbria looking to remain top of the Evo-Stik Premier Division – they sit one point clear of Farsley Celtic, who host rock-bottom North Ferriby United tonight.

By contrast, Workington need the points for altogether different reasons as they fight to avoid joining North Ferriby in dropping out of the division.

They sit second from bottom – five points from safety – but have improved in recent weeks and come into the game having won four of their past six matches.

“It’s always a tough place to go,” said Carden of the trip to Borough Park.

“They had a great win on Saturday away at Marine, who have been one of the form sides of late.

“I watched them last Tuesday against Witton. They should have been 2-0 up but then had a man sent off and fell to bits.

“We’re travelling on Tuesday afternoon, which isn’t ideal but it is what it is. It’s another one we have to overcome.”

Yellows are likely to be without winger Jack Dunn, who was forced off during Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Nantwich Town with a hamstring injury.

Alex Whittle will also have to be assessed after coming off injured in the same game, with Adam Hughes set to deputise at left-back if he is not fit.

Jack Mackreth and Dylan Vassallo both came off the bench on Saturday and either could replace Dunn if he is ruled out.

Yellows won the reverse fixture against Workington back in September, with first-half goals from Mackreth and Tony Gray leading them to a 2-0 victory at Cantilever Park.
