Stack wants Oldham revenge

Workington’s Jarrad Stack is out for revenge when Town take on Oldham in the Championship 1 play-offs this weekend.

The Cumbrians had been on course to finish top of the table, until defeats against the Roughyeds and Gateshead cost them first place, and the associated prize money, as they eventually finished third in the table.

That has made their route to the Grand Final, to be held at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on September 30th, even more difficult, starting with Sunday’s game against Oldham.

Stack said: “Up until two weeks ago we had our hands on the top spot in the league and the prize money that is associated with that. It was the defeat against Oldham a fortnight ago that took that away from us, so there is definitely a bit of pay back for us and we’ll be looking to make amends.

“We’re not going to focus on them, it’s a case of us playing our game and getting things right. They have some good players but our side is very talented and we have some great players and I believe if we play to our full potential we will run them off the park.

“We’re determined to make it to the final and playing at home with our fans behind us is always important for us. We know how much the club means to the fans and we’re determined to make it all the way for them.”

Despite their end-of-season woe, Workington have already secured promotion to the Championship for next season.
