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