Kingstone Press Championship Preview: Workington Town v Featherstone Rovers

Following the draw with Dewsbury Rams, Workington Town coach Phil Veivers was reasonably content.

“I was happy that we got the point and disappointed we didn’t get the two,” he said.

“We had three tries disallowed during the game and we scored four tries to three as well.

Looking ahead to the game against Featherstone Rovers he said: “We’ll go in there with the same attitude we had against Dewsbury and see where that takes us.

“If the boys aim up and put the performance in, the result will take care of itself. All we’re bothered about at the moment is putting the performance in.”

Featherstone Rovers dropped down to sixth in the table following their defeat to Halifax.

Coach Andy Hay said: “I don’t think we turned up with the frame of mind for a top four battle, which we were in, and that’s the disappointing factor for me. Some of our players let themselves down and as a group we didn’t perform. We’ve had a hard week in training.

“Every game is tough in this division this year and we expect a big game up at Workington. They turned us over there last year and they played well at Dewsbury last week to get a draw which is a tough place to go. I think they’re moving in the right direction and if our attitude’s not on it’s going to be an even tougher day.”

Half-back/hooker Jack Bussey and half-back Remy Marginet could return.
