Prescot Cables will look to make the most of home comforts this weekend when they welcome promotion-chasing Workington to the IP Truck Parts Stadium for a BetVictor Northern Premier League North / West Division match.
The two clubs met on 14th December. The match at Borough Park ended in a 4-0 win for Workington, but it is worth noting that Cables were very much in the game until the dismissal of Lloyd Dean, who had been introduced as a substitute but was only on the field for a matter of minutes. All four of the Reds’ goals that afternoon arrived after Prescot had been reduced to 10 men.
That fixture in Cumbria was the first League game between the clubs for 15 years. In 2004-05, Cables and Workington were competing at the top end of the NPL Premier Division. Prescot would eventually finish fifth but lost in the promotion play-offs to Workington, who having finished second in the division would go on to win promotion to Step 2.
The Form Guide
Workington travel South having relinquished top spot in the North / West Division last weekend; their five month leadership of the competition was ended by Ramsbottom United, who hit the summit by defeating the Cumbrians 2-0. However, Workington got back to winning ways in midweek, defeating Keswick 3-0 in the Cumberland Cup.
Although Prescot Cables are in mid-table, their form at the IP Truck Parts Stadium is strong. The Pesky Bulls have been beaten at home in the League only twice so far this season and have kept clean sheets in each of their last three home matches.
