Workington Town are still eyeing new recruits to help head coach Chris Thorman in his bid to achieve promotion back to the Championship.

Thorman has been busy preparing his team for today's trip to take on West Wales Raiders (3pm kick-off) but has also been keeping an eye out for potential signings to bolster his side.

Declan O'Donnell, Tyler Lancaster and Calvin Wellington have already been brought in to boost Thorman's options but he is keen to continue looking for an extra injection of quality, although he conceded that it is difficult to find the right players at this stage.

"We're still looking at some outside backs and that's a work in progress," he said.

"We signed Calvin Wellington to strengthen our options and he played his first game in a couple of years I think at Leigh because he'd been playing rugby union before that.

"We are still on the lookout."

Thorman took over as boss last month after the departure of Leon Pryce in April and has had to deal with a lopsided squad deprived of a number of his best players due to injury for much of his tenure so far.

But he is not feeling sorry for himself over the injuries and insisted that is just part of the job.

"That's just the rigours of the sport; it takes its toll," he said.

"I've been involved long enough with coaching teams to know that you very rarely get your strongest team out."
