Worksop Town boss Craig Denton was full of praise for the fans after his side’s 1-1 draw with Yorkshire Amateur.

Matt Reay gave the home side the lead with an own goal, before Steve Wankiewicz levelled with 20 minutes to go.

But it was the backing of the Tigers’ faithful which left Denton delighted.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to those who travelled,” he said. “We get exceptional support. We have the highest attendances in the league.

“On a cold, wet Saturday afternoon where it is pouring down with rain, a lot of fans would think twice about travelling, especially against Yorkshire Amateur who are top of the league.

“But not our fans who will support you through thick and thin. Win, lose or draw they will still be backing you.

“Hopefully we’ve rewarded our fans with that performance, to make sure they know we care about this club and that we want to do really well, so a huge thank you to the travelling fans as they made a big difference.”

Denton is now targeting three points next weekend when the Tigers travel to Harrogate Railway.

“It is really important that we don’t disrespect Harrogate or no matter who we come up against,” he added.

“They are in the bottom half of the league and we will give respect to everyone we come up against, so we will be working hard and looking to put in another good performance in.

“We need to carry the momentum from the last few games through to the next few games. I don’t think I can ask for much more really.

“Hopefully we will go to Harrogate and show why we are challenging up high in the table. Three points is key, and also to keep up these performances.”
