Worksop Town manager Craig Denton said the club’s travelling supporters was helping the Tigers to stretch their unbeaten away record.
After Steve Wolley’s 74th minute free-kick into the top corner clinched a 1-0 win at Staveley Miners’ Welfare, Worksop moved up to ninth in the Premier Division of the Northern Counties East League.
Denton said: “I think to be fair we’ve played stronger teams at home and been unlucky. But home or away at this level doesn’t make a great difference. Our away support means we have that environment behind us wherever we play anyway.
“Today we beat a good strong side, Staveley continue to put a good side together every year so this fixture always provides an entertaining fixture, but in terms of how we set up do we need to be a little bit better? Yes we do.”
Woolley struck with a piece of quality after substutute Craig Mitchell was pulled back when he ran on to a stray back pass.
Earlier in the second half Laurie Wilson was thwarted by a good save and Aaron Moxam’s follow-up header was cleared off the line after Wolley’s effort was blocked by the keeper’s feet.
Denton added: “We always knew we had the individual quality in the side and we knew they had to step up.
“We weren’t happy at half-time and had a few words with the players. We were a little bit disappointed with how we started but we know it’s always a tough game here for us,
“Staveley are a well established side so we knew it was always going to be a difficult afternoon for us.
“I just thought we could have added a bit more quality. The wind didn’t help us in the first half but I always felt if we could get that goal and then shut up shop that we’d get all three points, which we did.”
