all correct but not their shirt numbers
Worksop would've been in front from their next attack, had it not been for the agility of Lill, who twisted in mid air to turn Wolley's header over from Adam Scott's right wing delivery.
Just before half time, Currie turned well on the edge of the home sides area to get his shot away through a crowded defence, but the ball crashed off of the left hand upright to safety.
HT: Badgers 1 v Tigers 1
Half time saw the introduction approximately fifteen substitutes all told, by which point the use of actual allocated shirt numbers had apparently been completely abandoned.
The home side, looking to mount a challenge in the NCEL first division this season, will have been happier with the draw than the NCEL premier division Tigers, even though their make do and mend patchwork squad, had to work damn hard for the draw and rode their luck a few times after the break and had their second half goalkeeper Malik to thank for making a few decent and timely saves.
Liam Greenfield and Steve Woolley were both denied by the Badgers keeper as Worksop finished the game the stronger of the two sides, but United held on for a morale boosting draw at the end of this well contested local derby encounter, between two work in progress sides who both still have plenty to do before the season starts for real next month.
