Whitby Town made it six games unbeaten with a 1-0 Evo-Stik Premier Division success over title-chasing Workington.
The Blues’ top-scorer Mikey Roberts netted the only goal of the game in the 49th-minute, moving his side up one place to 19th in the league standings, two points above the relegation zone.
Town created plenty of chances to add to their tally and should have beaten the second-placed Reds by a much more comfortable margin, according to manager Chris Hardy.
“On reflection, today’s result was nothing less than we deserved,” he told the Whitby Gazette.
“On a difficult playing surface the boys went about their business in an excellent manner, producing some eye-catching football that should’ve seen us out of sight in this fixture.
“I feel that I should also mention about the concentration levels that we maintained up until the final whistle. Given the fact we didn’t achieve daylight between ourselves and Workington, it was of the utmost importance that we didn’t allow a lapse in concentration.
“We now switch our attentions to Wednesday night’s fixture against Ashton United where we will be looking to make it seven games unbeaten.”
