Workington Town will be ready for South Wales

Workington Town chairman Dave Bowden is confident that his side can pick up where they left off when they entertain South Wales at Derwent Park on Sunday (1pm ko).
Town are second in Championship One and will be expecting to pick up three vital points against the Welsh. But Bowden admitted that the stop-start fixture programme wasn’t ideal.
“We beat Crusaders 30-20 eight days ago and then we were left without a fixture this weekend,” said Bowden.
“Joint coaches Gary Charlton and Martin Oglanby don’t like this stop-start system and would prefer to keep the momentum going, as I am sure other coaches would also like to do.
“But I am confident that we will be ready for South Wales on Sunday and we’ll be training three times this week. The break will also allow Dan Rooney, Jarrad Stack and Karl Olstrum, who all missed the victory at Crusaders through injury, to be back in contention.”
With six league games to go and four teams to gain promotion to the Championship, Town are 13 points clear of fifth-placed Rochdale. Realistically, two wins from their remaining games would see the west Cumbrians up.
“We want to win every game,” added Bowden “but with games against top-four teams Barrow and Doncaster, it’s going to be tough. I am sure they will have exactly the same target in mind.”
