WORKSOP Town have climbed out of the relegation zone, after a mixed start to 2009.

An impressive 3-0 win away at Frickley Athletic on New Year's Day was followed by a defeat by the same scoreline, at home on Saturday.

FC United of Manchester were the visitors at the weekend, when 443 watched the Lancashire side sealed their ninth win of the season.

Tigers lie 15th in the UniBond Premier, thanks to the victory on New Year's Day, when Chris Adam, Matt Glass and Gary Townsend were on target.

Peter Rinkcavage's men have no game on Wednesday night, after the Buxton and Matlock Town League Cup fixture was postponed on Saturday.

Tigers are due to face the winner.
