TIGERS reached the semi-finals of the Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Challenge Cup, with this win on Wednesday at Cannon Park.

Manager Martin McIntosh, Max Wragg, Chris Bettney, Marc Thompson and Ben Tomlinson all came into the starting line-up, with central defender Luke Shiels moving into midfield.

The only goal came from Tomlinson after just four minutes, but the young striker limped off on 21 minutes with a bad ankle injury to add to the Tigers injury problems.

Some over physical challenges and indiscipline from the visitors led to a red card for Tom Harban at the final whistle.

Worksop: Worsnop, Wragg, Wood, Shiels, McIntosh, Simpkins, Bettney, Young, Tomlinson (Bacon 21), Thompson, Mallon. Subs not used: Cotterill, Kennedy, Billard.

Attendance: 123.
