Jon Worthington scored his fith goal in nine starts for the Shaymen on Tuesday night, something Neil Aspin says is an unlikely bonus for his side.

Worthington, 29, had only scored 13 goals in 279 career appearances before signing for Town this summer - an average of a goal every 21 games.

But despite being renowned as a tough tackling midfield he has found his goalscoring touch this term, with a goal every two games having seen him become establish at the head of a midfield diamond.

His manager Neil Aspin said: “If I’m perfectly honest we’re playing him in a role which you wouldn’t expect him to be in.

“He’s playing in a more forward role than he has previously but the first game he played there was at Chester (in the league) where he scored and could have had three or four that night, so we’ve kept him in that position.

“He’s been coming up with a lot of goals because he makes some good runs into the box and the goals we’ve got from him are a bonus.”

Worthington recently set up his own football academy to help coach the stars of tomorrow.
