It was substitute Nathan Jarman who won this tight encounter between to sides struggling towards the bottom of the Premier Division table. The game was exactly a classic but when your down the bottom you’ll take any win and Sports boss John McGrath will be happy pulling further way from the drop zone. Jimmy Phillips and Daniel Wordsworth exchanged early blows for either side before both Jack Walsh and new loan signing Victor Sodeinde both had shots saved by close quarters for Sports by the Workington stopper. Into the second half and the side from Cumbria had a penalty given after Pablo Mills was adjudged to have fouled inside the box. Jason Walker steppes up put it wide of the right hand post. Moments later Sports scores the goal that would win the game as substitute Jarman struck a peach from outside the box off the post and into the top right corner. Sports managed to keep Workington quiet for most of the remaining minutes of the match. The closest the visitors cams was a free header from Kyle May before Coventry City loaner keeper Corey Addai made a terrific diving save from a long range effort to keep his second team sheet in his second start in goal. Sports now move up to 17th and move further from danger.
