SCARBOROUGH Athletic returned to winning ways in Evo-Stik First Division North with victory over Ossett Albion.

Steve Kittrick's side had gone three games without a victory but goals from Jacob Hazel and Cameron Murray secured a morale boosting three points in front of a crowd of 321.

Boro, who were in League Cup action against Tadcaster Albion last night, visit Hyde United on Saturday.

Kittrick, meanwhile, has expressed his frustration at transfer targets who have opted to join Evo-Stik Premier League strugglers Frickley instead of play-off chasing Scarborough.

"I tried to get a couple of lads from Halifax to make us stronger but, mysteriously, they have chosen to go to Frickley?" he said.

"Sometimes they go for ease but I would rather be playing in a team that is going to win something and a team in the top six than a team in the bottom four or five, but that's how football is."

Whitby Town dropped to fourth in the Evo-Stik Premier League after crashing to a 4-0 defeat at Workington.

The game was only given the go-ahead after a pitch inspection 60 minutes before kick-off.

Workington took the lead after five minutes with a goal scored by Rob Wilson from 18 yards.

Whitby came back well but good chances created by Matty Tyman and Luke Bythway were missed.

The home side doubled their lead in the 37th minute when Jack Ryan set-up Scott Allison to score from ten yards.

The second half saw Ryan missing an early chance for Workington but Allison scored his second goal after 77 minutes.

Conor Tinnion set up substitute Sam Joel to score his side's fourth and final goal.

On Saturday, Whitby Town are at home to basement side Skelmersdale United kick off 3pm.

Chris Hardy's side are now nine points adrift of leaders Blyth Spartans who also have two games in hand.
