Neil Aspin said the five goals against Workington were an added bonus as the Shaymen got their first home win of the season.

The Shaymen were disappointing in defeat to Colwyn Bay in midweek, but responded in the perfect fashion by putting five past the Cumbrian’s on Saturday.

And Aspin said: “After losing on Tuesday, the main thing today was that we got the three point because you don’t want to be starting the season with two home games and not getting maximum points from at least one of them.

“I would have taken any score today as long as it was a win, but the goals are a bonus.

“When you’ve got four strikers at the club and they all score on the same day it’s good for their confidence and I’m really pleased to get them all on the score sheet.”

Town went ahead through Dale Johnson but were pegged back within 90 seconds - though they restored the lead five minutes later, a response Aspin said he vital.

“Normally I would say getting the first goal was very important, but because we conceded straight afterwards I think the third goal was actually the most important one,” he said.

“Once we got it I think it settled everybody down and we went on to control the game.

“Taking the lead is important and everyone knows if they can stop us from scoring and frustrate us it becomes a difficult place to play and being at home can work against us rather than being an advantage,” he said.
