Bulldogs coach John Kear is set to check on Ash Lindsay ahead of a match that Batley are desperate to win.
Since then Sheffield, Leigh, Featherstone, Whitehaven and Doncaster have all got the better of Batley – and Kear has been left fuming.
He said: “In the first half (against Doncaster) it appeared as though we made no effort.”
Workington coach Gary Charlton is preparing for a difficult eight days, with three games against top five opposition starting with Sunday’s trip to Mount Pleasant.
Charlton said: “It’s going to be tough, but hopefully we’ll have a few blokes back on the field.
“We just have to man up, go down there and try our best, and see where that takes us.”
