Kingstone Press Championship Preview: Workington Town v Rochdale Hornets

Workington Town coach Phil Veivers has the option of recalling Declan Hulme following his recent suspension.

Town have now won four consecutive games to move within three points of fifth-placed Dewsbury Rams.

Veivers was frustrated with his side’s second-half display against Keighley Cougars last week, but is now focusing on a fifth straight victory.

Veivers said: “Our confidence is bound to be high because we’ve got a bit of momentum about us.”

Hornets coach Ian Talbot hopes to have Mike Ratu and Gareth Langley available for selection, while Shaun Robinson could also feature after joining Rochdale from Dewsbury Rams.

Talbot’s men won 54-22 against Barrow Raiders last week. He said: “If we compete set for set with any team at this level, we’ll give ourselves a chance.

“That will be our aim, and then hopefully that frustrates Workington.

“They were the bonus point masters at one stage, but since then they’ve won four games and are competing for ninth spot, so they’ll be the favourites. We’ll just concentrate on ourselves and what we can control.”
