Cameras fall on Championship 1

Adam Sullivan, Steve Dooler and Scott Woodcock return for the Hawks as they close in on the Co-operative Championship One title.

“They all had little niggles last week,” said coach Paul March, “but they’re all fine now. They’ll take their places in the team, as will Wayne McHugh. We’re at full strength.”

March added: “It’s up to us now. We’ve just got to keep winning. As long as we do that, the title should come to us. Last week’s results do take some pressure off us, but we’ve got to keep working hard.

“We’ve got to make sure we perform. We’ve got three weeks left of the season. We’ve performed for 16 weeks of the season so far. If we concentrate and apply ourselves, I don’t see why we can’t perform for three more weeks.

“However, Workington beat Rochdale last week and they’ll be coming here confident. They’ll be wanting to knock us off our perch and we’ll have to be on our guard.”

Town will travel without Jason Mossop, who suffered an ankle ligament problem during Sunday’s win against Rochdale.

Workington coach Gary Charlton said: “Only having a small squad makes it difficult on these quick turnarounds.”

He added: “We’re going to go to Hunslet and give it our best shot. We don’t go into any match thinking we’re going to lose.

“As long as the lads give 100 per cent, we can’t ask for anything more.”
