Martin McIntosh is confident his players can get a result against rivals Retford on Saturday.

The Tigers currently sit seventh, 13 points off the top but with a considerable amount of games in hand.

“We are going in to the game in positive mood and we are confident we can get a result,” he said.

“We are hoping the fitness levels are decent, we have worked them hard and they have responded well, but a match is a lot different to training.”

He added the cold snap has disrupted their preparations but warned his players “once the game comes, the action will be thick and fast”.

Worksop defeated their landlords 3-0 earlier in the campaign, under the stewardship of former manager Peter Rinckavage, and McIntosh said he would be delighted if his team could extend their unbeaten league form.

“It is going to be difficult, as always, we will have to be at our best to beat them,” he added.

Retford, however, are cemented to the bottom of the table and without a win in 10 league games, ahead of the clash at Cannon Park.
