Championship preview: Workington v Keighley

Workington Town coach Phil Veivers is aiming to make it three wins out of three since taking charge of the Cumbrians.

Town backed up an 8-6 victory over Barrow Raiders with a 38-12 win over  Normanton Knights in last week’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup clash.

But with the focus back on the Kingstone Press Championship, Veivers will be hoping for a victory that would push seventh-placed Town even higher in the league table.

But Veivers will be without Karl Olstrum for the visit of Keighley Cougars, after the loose-forward was handed a two-match ban earlier this week.

Cougars coach Paul March is also missing as he continues to serve a four-match suspension.

But March was left pleased with his side’s 42-0 win over Wath Brown Hornets last week.

March said: “It was a very professional display. We scored some good tries and kept them scoreless, which I’m delighted with. We defended very strongly at times.”
