Preview: Swinton v Workington

Loan signing Danny Meekin could make his first start for Swinton.

Andy Ainscough, another loan signing from Leigh, could also be included in Paul Kidd’s squad for the first time since agreeing a one-month switch to the Lions.

Kidd said: “Andy is very keen to do well. He’s got quite a bit of pace for a second rower.”

Dana Wilson’s calf injury will be assessed before Kidd finalises his team to face Workington in Sunday’s Co-operative Championship One fixture.

Town assistant coach Gary Charlton is hoping for a change of fortunes after seeing another key player suffer an injury last week.

Charlton said: “John Lebbon looks like he’s done his knee ligaments. He was struggling after the game against Blackpool. He’s gone for physio and we’re just waiting to see what the outcome is.”

Charlton added: “Hopefully Lee Dutton will be up and running for Sunday, although he didn’t train on Tuesday night. He isn’t far away, it’s just a matter of whether he puts his hand up to play or not.

“We’ve got a lot of injuries at the present time and we’re going into these big matches under strength. Everyone gets injuries, but it seems to hit us hard when the big matches come around.”
