Quit with the camera hogging you buffoons, the pitch is the other way.

An even more solid performance from the Tigers tonight than in their opening game v Sutton Town AFC, even though the scoreline might not suggest it.
Lee Whittington was a layer of paint away from opening his goalscoring account for Worksop. You get the feeling with Lee, that he is a confidence player ... and once he does find the back of the net, he'll start doing it on a regular basis, this quite often happens when a striker joins a new club.
'Yellow ball'

Ben Tomlinson, on as a sub in the second half put the finishing touch to one of WTFC's regular surges up-field into the heart of Emley's defence, to secure a narrow win.
Once again the Worksop defence looked solid, with Wharton, Shiels, Simpkins and Wood all fitting in well together and Colliver offering an extra dimension to that unit when called into action too.
A solid backbone, with quality all over the pitch (and in reserve too) is what the Tigers are now building ... the bookies might still see them as second favourites for the drop, but expectations amongst the faithful who have been watching this team come together are considerably higher than that.
Without making any rash predictions, I think this side are going to come tearing out of the blocks this season and give a few people a bit of a wake up call.
Worksop are back!
'Take it from there three'
