Hardy – ‘Workington are not a bad side’

Chris Hardy knows that this Saturday’s match with Workington is far from easy, despite their lowly position in the league table.

With the situation at North Ferriby United, the Reds’ league status has become even more uncertain leaving them with an uphill battle until the end of the season.

Despite their league struggles this season, Hardy knows that anything less than a top performance could be costly for the Seasiders.

“Workington’s situation highlights how competitive the league is,” said Hardy.

“I don’t believe for one second that Workington are a bad side but they’ve got themselves into a bad situation, and on the back of this results have gone against them.

“They’ve found this season a real struggle which again highlights just how competitive this league is and it shows how a lack of confidence can affect your form.”

For the match, the Blues manager will remain without striker Ashley Coffey, who remains on the sidelines with injury, and also defender, Daniel Rowe who will have to serve the final match of his suspension.

“There’s currently a question mark over Ash Coffey’s fitness, ” Hardy revealed.

“I’m hopeful that we can slowly ease him back into contention to feature towards the end of the season. We’ll get him back into training and assess where he is at.

“The only other unavailability is Dan Rowe who was unable to serve his suspension due to the postponement last week so that will roll into this Saturday.”
