Workington Town head coach Chris Thorman will not be underestimating struggling West Wales when the Raiders come to Derwent Park tomorrow (3pm kickoff) looking to spoil the West Cumbrians’ play-offs push.

League 1’s bottom side have won just once this season – beating Coventry 44-16 last month – but Thorman does not want to risk being left with a red face by taking a win for granted against them.

“The one thing I was surprised with about them was that they were probably the biggest pack of forwards that we played,” he said.

“They beat Coventry a few weeks ago so they’ll certainly have my respect.

“From our point of view we don’t want them to get another one this weekend.”

Fuifui Moimoi is a doubt for tomorrow’s game after he suffered a hamstring strain, while Gordon Maudling (shoulder) and Andrew Dawson (thigh) are carrying knocks but trained on Wednesday night.

Captain Ollie Wilkes is still recovering from a clear-out operation and said he had an “outside chance” of being involved.

Those potential absences could open the door for Blain Marwood to be in the squad and Thorman said he would have no qualms about throwing him in after he impressed when Town took on the Raiders in June.

He added: “Marwood had a little cameo last time and scored on pretty much his first touch of the ball.

“There will be an opportunity now for fringe players.”

Much of Town’s performance against rivals Whitehaven in last weekend’s derby left Thorman pleased and he is keen to see them not just replicate that level of display but build on it in the final three games of the regular season.

“We were really pleased with the performance and how we defended, especially going to their place with quite a hostile crowd,” he said.

“We need to continue that and also get better every week; that’s been the thought process for me and the players all along.

“Nothing is set in stone yet and I said to the boys we don’t want to limp into the play-offs, we want to be firing and teams to be wary of us.

“It’s very much up to us and in our control now so we don’t want to have any missed opportunities.

“If we continue to train and prepare well I’m sure we’ll achieve what we set out to.”

Town are sixth in the league table and looking to ensure they make the play-offs to stay in the hunt for promotion.

They travel to Hunslet on September 1 before hosting Doncaster on September 8.
