Workington Town boss Chris Thorman is having to start today's game with London Skolars short on numbers.

Thorman has named a 17 man side but he indicated that three of the four names on the bench today would not feature in the League 1 clash.

During the week the Town coach admitted he was struggling for this game with a host of players picking up injuries.

Caine Barnes and Elliott Miller were already injury concerns and they have now been joined by Ryan Fieldhouse, whose season looks to be over due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Also on the injury list are Tyler Lancaster with a suspected fractured clavicle, Russ Bolton with a soft issue injury and Sean Penkywicz with a strained adductor, while captain Oliver Wilkes went under the knife on Tuesday for a clear-out operation which is expected to sideline him for at least two weeks.

Town: Mellor, Rooke, Singleton, Hewitt, Walsh, Doran, Forber, Moimoi, O'Donnell, Scholey, Tickle, Maudling, Dawson. Subs: Olstrom, Hopkins, Curwen, Barnes.
