Tough test for Workington Town
Last updated at 12:58, Friday, 15 February 2013
Workington Town’s joint captain Jarrad Stack will lead his side in to battle at Doncaster on Sunday, confident they have what it takes to register a second away win.
The Aussie second-rower, who will skipper the team along with prop Ewan Dowes, was part of the Workington team that put in a lack-lustre performance and went down 20-0 at the Keepmoat Stadium last September.
“I’m confident we can do it,” said Stack.
“We were unlucky against Halifax. They had a 10-minute spell where they got the better of us.”
Town have taken a very creditable four points from the first two games in the Championship, and Stack added: “The new boys have gelled well.
“It’s been a challenge stepping up to the Championship, but we have the players to do the job.
“Our defence has been outstanding and, after the performance against Halifax, we’ve got what it takes to beat Doncaster.”
Prop Jamie Acton can’t wait for his ban to end so he can get stuck in to Doncaster.
Having served a four-match ban, professional cage fighter Acton, a new recruit, said: “I can be good for Workington Town.”
Second-rower Mark Shackley trained last night but is still a couple of weeks away from returning to action.
Town are going to be without Jason Mossop.
