The side from West Cumbria have picked up just three wins on the road in 16 attempts. A record Workington will be looking to change but with Trinity’s encouraging home form, we will go into this game as favourites. Morale will certainly be high, with midweek results going in Trinity's favour, the Blues are now mathematically safe from relegation and Russ Wilcox's men can officially begin to focus their attentions on the top half of the table, rather than the relegation zone!

Looking back at the reverse fixture, the Holy Blues picked up all three points on the road in dramatic fashion. The Blues won 3-2 after coming back from behind after Steven Rigg gave the Reds the lead. Trinity equalised with a late goal in the first half. Javelle Clarke levelling up the game. Declan Howe put us 2-1 up before we later got pegged back to 2-2 by Kurt Nelson, but with fifteen minutes to go Declan Howe netted a penalty to complete the comeback and grab himself his brace for the game. Trinity's first away win of the season. A special, special day for the fully committed travelling faithful!

When it comes to home form, Trinity have a clear home advantage compared to when on the road. The Holy Blues have a 50% win rate at the Northolme winning eight of the sixteen fixtures, drawing four and losing four. Over half of our points in the table have been secured at home and we will be looking to build on this against our opponents.

This one is all set up to be one hell of a titanic tussle that will not disappoint the Non League Day crowd. So come along down, get your footballing fix, be a part of the Gainsborough Trinity family, meet new friends and be a part of the occasion!
