Caine Barnes won’t feature for Workington Town tomorrow when they make their way back to Borough Park for the first time in more than 30 years.

Barnes has a pelvic injury which ruled him out of last weekend’s win at West Wales and coach Chris Thorman believes the former Seaton amateur could be out for the next four weeks.

The talented youngster is due to have a scan to find out the extent of the issue but, along with Karl Olstrom, who is struggling with a calf injury, they won’t feature against Coventry Bears.

But in better news for Thorman, he is confident that the experienced Danny Tickle will be in action, after following head knock protocol this week.

“Caine will probably have a scan and then we can see exactly what the injury entails and he will require some physio,” said Thorman, who says playing on a different pitch should not affect his stars.

“It is a little bit wider but we have got them to bring it in slightly. And we have been training on there for a little bit now so we have got used to the surroundings.

“The club is returning to Borough Park for the first time in quite a while and it is where Town stemmed from but for the boys this has to be just another game.

“We are grateful to Reds who have let us train on it and we have a great relationship with them so everyone is looking forward to the game.”

Thorman believes if they can keep showing the improvement they have over the last couple of weeks, then they can get back on track in League One.

But he says all the players have to play their part if they want to succeed.

“Everyone has to contribute and we have to train well at every opportunity we get,” he added.

“It is not perfect yet but I can see improvement and the lads are buying into what we want to do, which is great.

“We are not the finished product but I do believe there is still plenty more to come.”

This is the second weekend on the trot that the Bears have had to make the trip up to west Cumbria, after they lost out at Whitehaven 32-18 last Sunday.

But their coach Tom Tsang said he was encouraged by what he saw from his charges.

He told the Coventry Observer: “I continue to be encouraged by our fight and endeavour but we must start turning these strong performances into consistent wins.”
