Workington Town will go into battle against Oldham without key half-back Carl Forber this afternoon.

Forber was struggling with his groin and hamstring and was not fit enough to take to the Borough Park field so Sean Penkywicz is stepping up to partner Jamie Doran in his place.

And Declan O'Donnell moves into the hooking role with coach Chris Thorman forced into a reshuffle of the side.

Andrew Dawson moves into the starting line-up at loose forward with Blain Marwood, Sam Hopkins, Jonathan Walsh and Tom Curwen making up the bench.

Ollie Wilkes is back and in at prop, alongside Fuifui Moimoi with Stevie Scholey and Gordon Maudling making up the second row.

Town: Fieldhouse, Mellor, Wellington, Singleton, Bolton, Doran, Penkywicz, Wilkes, O'Donnell, Moimoi, Scholey, Maudling, Dawson. Subs: Walsh, Curwen, Hopkins, Marwood.
