Tylar Mellor will make his return to the Workington Town line-up this afternoon as they take on Coventry Bears at Borough Park.

The youngster will start on the wing after being out injured for several weeks in a boost for Town coach Chris Thorman.

Mellor's inclusion is the only real change to last week's starting line-up when Workington won in West Wales.

There are two more changes on the bench from last week with Andrew Dawson and Karl Olstrom named as subs.

Coventry are obviously now without their young Australian half-back Nick Newman who has just joined Newcastle Thunder.

This is Town's first return to their former home of Borough Park in more than 30 years and they are hoping it will be a successful one for them.

Thorman said during the week he had been buoyed by a good defensive display in Wales and he is hoping that they can continue to build on that.

Town: Fieldhouse, Mellor, Wellington, Singleton, Bolton, Doran, Forber, Wilkes, Penkywicz, Moimoi, Scholey, Maudling, Tickle. Subs: Dawson, Curwen, Olstrom, O'Donnell.

Coventry: Hall, Carter, Freeman, Pearce-Paul, Rance, Davies, Conroy, Ryan, Davis, Tully, Jones, Sherratt, Barratt. Subs: Sheridan, Kaufman, Stewart, Fellows.
