A first half Steve Porter goal was enough to give RMI the points as they continued their recent revival with another victory, this time grabbing three points at high-flying Workington. Despite their recent upturn in form that has seen Stuart Humphreys' young side turn the form book upside down and earn an FA Trophy trip to Stevenage in the process, the trip to Workington proved to be a daunting prospect, with the hosts having a terrific season that puts them well on the course for a promotion challenge come the end of the season.

However, RMI were in no mood to lose their unbeaten record which now stretches to an incredible seven games, an unthinkable prospect as they struggled through the early stages of the season.

Steve Porter, a recent signing from relegation rivals Scarborough, has proved to be a revelation and, after scoring the opening goal in the 2-1 FA Trophy victory over Harrogate, he was again on hand to put his side in front after just eleven minutes of the Boxing Day clash.

RMI now travel to basement side Lancaster City on Saturday afternoon with the confidence that they can put further breathing space between themselves and the relegation zone, with even a top-half finish looking a more likely prospect with each passing week.
