The Gingerbreads Fight Back

Rhys Lewis's 90th minute equaliser rescued a point for The Gingerbreads on a windy day at The Meres.

Danny Meadows and Luther Wildin were named on the bench, the latter arriving during the first half after getting back from the CONCACAF U20 Championship and heading straight to the The Meres.

With The Gingerbreads attacking with a strong wind and rain behind them, the early exchanges in the match were mainly in midfield. Luke Shaw had their first real chance but saw his shot saved, Lee Shaw couldn't finish the rebound.

Workington went ahead when a free kick found their player with a free header.

Despite a number of chances it took until 8 minutes from halftime for The Gingerbreads to find an equaliser. Luke Shaw cut inside and fired in a shot which took a deflection to nestle in the back of the net.

2 minutes into the second half The Gingerbreads were behind again. Workington attacked down the right, and Joshua Calvert found himself in plenty of space to put his side 2-1 up.

Workington were reduced 3 minutes later when captain Gari Rowntree picked up a second booking.

From this point on, Workington defended deep and The Gingerbreads camped themselves in their half.

Danny Meadows came on and started creating more opportunities for The Gingerbreads. But it took until the 89th minute to get the equaliser. Danny Meadows whipped a cross in and Rhys Lewis headed home.

The Gingerbreads almost got a 3rd but Danny Meadows cross eluded everyone.

With the final whistle going and clubs in the playoff hunt drawing, The Gingerbreads moved up a place to 6th.

Tuesday night we're away to Coalville, kick off 7.45pm
