Saturday will mark former Tigers keeper Jon Worsnop’s return to Sandy Lane – but the shot stopper will be watching from the sidelines.

Worsnop is currently recovering from a broken nose, but told the Guardian he’s still looking forward to coming back to Worksop.

“It’s my first time back and I’m looking forward to it, Worksop is a good club and Jason (Clark) has done really well with it,” he said.

“The fans were always good to me and if circumstances had been a bit different I would have liked to have still been there.”

The man who played 59 games for Tigers now features for FC United of Manchester, a side who still harbour hopes of winning the league title.

“Anything is still possible, we’ve got a few games in hand and although if we win them we’ll still be behind Hednesford, we still have to play them.”

“There’s a long way to go though.”

“It’s a good bunch of lads, good players and we’re looking to get into the play-offs at least.”

‘Spider’ as he is nicknamed, says Tigers fans can expect the Red Rebels to get the ball down and pass it around on Saturday.

“FC love to play football, you won’t see much long ball, we play from the back and build from there.”

“If I was a neutral I’d pay to watch them.”

And he picked out a couple of his team-mates as men to watch for the vital Northern Premier League clash.

“Jerome Wright is an exciting player, Mike Norton always comes up with goals and we’ve signed Tom Greaves who keeps grabbing goals when he’s involved.”

“It should be a good game.”
