Kingstone Press Championship preview: Workington Town v Sheffield Eagles

Workington coach Phil Veivers is looking for his side to bounce back after their defeat to London Broncos.

“I was disappointed with the way we handled ourselves defensively last week against the Broncos. I thought we created enough opportunities to win the game but our defence let us down, as did us dropping the ball over the line on a couple of occasions,” he said.

“Sheffield are a very strong outfit, they’ve got a pretty decent squad and have had some fair results. They have a strong pack and are always a threat with Misi Taulapapa, QLT(Quentin Laula Tongagae) and Menzie Yere in their back line and. It will be a challenge for us.”

Mark Aston feels there’s more to come from his side despite their win over Batley.

“We were happy with the win, it wasn’t vintage and not our best performance but we ground it out and that’s the important thing at the end of the day,” he said.

“We had a tough physical session at training this week and we’ve been honest; we know where we want to be. If we don’t sort ourselves out we’re going to be talking about a defeat. We’ll get it right hopefully this weekend.

“Having watched them a couple of times, they’re a decent team so they’ll certainly cause us some problems and we need to make sure we answer the questions they ask of us.”

Aston is hoping second rows Michael Knowles Ben Musolino will be fit for the trip to Workington.
