Workington expecting Leigh challenge

Jason Mossop (elbow) and Marc Shackley (head) are Workington Town’s major concerns, but joint coach Gary Charlton is keeping his fingers crossed.

“We’ll give them every chance,” he said. “We won’t rule anybody out until the physio or themselves say they can’t play.”

Town are aiming to bounce back from last week’s 30-0 defeat at Hunslet.

Charlton admitted: “We were very poor. Offensively we were the worst we’ve been since we took over.

“We were dominated around the ruck and we just kept on turning over the ball. We’ve got to keep hold of the ball – if we’ve got it, they can’t score – but I think we only completed about three sets all afternoon.”

On Leigh, he added: “They’re playing well. We know we’ve got to up our game. We’re expecting a good reaction from the boys, and a good challenge from Leigh.”

Leigh star Robbie Hunter-Paul is set to miss out after being hospitalised following a clash of heads with Sheffield’s Menzie Yere last week.

Leigh Centurions coach Ian Millward is hoping for a repeat of last week’s performance when Leigh beat Sheffield 68-6.

Millward said: “We played very, very well. Our go-forward was so strong and on top of that we had a pretty good kicking game.”
