Contain yourselves ladies, he's spoken for.

Woo hoo!
That'll do nicely.
Whitby Town must be wondering what hit them tonight, for the first half they were probably looking like the side most likely to win this game, but the second half was a completely different story.

Even after Deon Meikle had put the Tigers ahead the visitors still looked to be in the ascendancy for spells, so Peter Rinkcavage changed things round and the Tigers seemed to be playing a lot deeper than they had in the first 45 minutes.
Not by way of negatively trying to preserve a 1-0 lead but to enforce Whitby's astute and experienced manager Harry Dunn to have to change things around.

Dunn's hand was forced and that change afforded Worksop the space through the channels they needed to launch a bombardment on the Whitby goal for the latter part of the game and four goals in 7 minutes speaks for itself. Peter Knox scored a quick fire hat trick and then Jamie Jackson put the finishing touch to the final score with a sublime and cheeky finish that demonstrated his confidence and willingness to entertain the crowd.

Of course there were still detractors and dissenters amongst the Tigers faithful who found a multitude of things to moan about ... such is life.
