Steve Lewis is back in contention for York after playing in last week’s reserves fixture.
Brett Waller is still in a knee brace. He will see a doctor next week in an effort to get a timetable for his recovery.
Woods said: “From our point of view, we’re entirely focused on our performances.
“We didn’t play real smart against Hunslet and we still pushed them all the way.
“If we get things right then we’ll be OK and we don’t have to worry about the opposition.”
Workington joint coach Gary Charlton said: “It’s a six pointer this week; there’ll be a lot riding on it.
“I’m expecting two very committed teams out there. We’ll try to get a DVD of them since Dave Woods took over, and from that we’ll hopefully be able to come up with a game-plan that will get us the points.”
