Worksop Town’s match-winner Adam Scott has set his sights on those teams above the Tigers in the NCEL Premier table.

Worksop recorded their fourth straight win in all competitions on Wednesday night with a 2-1 success away at Parkgate.

A Julian Lawrence goal gave Tigers a first half lead which was wiped out nine minutes from time by Parkgate’s Jassim Alali.

But the home side’s revival was short-lived as substitute Scott struck what proved to be the winner just moments later.

And, despite coming off the bench, Scott was pleased to have played a part with his 12th of the season to move Worksop to ninth.

He said: “It’s frustrating to have been on the bench lately but the lads have been doing the business, so I’m more than happy to contribute when needed. Teams above us are dropping points now so hopefully we can start creeping up the table.”

And added: “The lads worked hard last night, we just weren’t really creating many clear cut chances. It’s always hard playing teams at the bottom of the league.

“People think it’s going to be a walk in the park but they don’t have anything to lose so they play with no fear. They set up to defend and hit us on the break so it’s sometimes hard to break down teams like that.”

Tigers take on Notts rivals Rainworth Miners Welfare at Sandy Lane on Saturday hoping to extend their winning run of late.

Keeper Jon Kennedy said: “We’ll have intentions to win, try and play the football we can play, but ultimately it’s about getting the win to get back up there.”
