Elliott Miller could be set to get his first competitive minutes of the season when Workington Town entertain Doncaster at Derwent Park in the Challenge Cup fourth round tomorrow (3pm kick-off).

The centre is yet to play a competitive minute under head coach Chris Thorman, having been ruled out for the season last year by the time the boss took over then picking up a knock in the first pre-season game against Whitehaven which kept him out of last weekend's Challenge Cup game against West Bowling.

Thorman has spoken of his desire to get Miller back fit and involved and he looks set to be included in the 21-man squad for this weekend's game, along with three-quarter Calvin Wellington.

"Elliott and Calvin are both named in the squad," Thorman said. "Elliott trained really well last night and Calvin did okay but it might be a week too soon for him."

Having had time to reflect on last weekend's performance against West Bowling, Thorman felt a number of players did not put 100 per cent into the game and warned that if that continues he is more than happy to make changes ahead of the start of the League 1 campaign.

He said: "I think the players were a bit off; they were at about 75 per cent and you can't go in with that sort of attitude. Some of them have been told in no uncertain terms that it's not acceptable.

"I'm looking forward to the game this weekend and hoping that the weather will be kinder. That said, when you're in this part of the country you have to learn to manage that.

"We have to be able control the game more and there are a few things I've highlighted which I guarantee will improve.

"I've made no bones about it that the league is our bread and butter and this weekend is another opportunity for players to stake a claim ahead of that.

"But at the same time we don't want to devalue or disrespect the cup because it's a very important competition and we want to go as far as we can in it."

If Town get past Doncaster this weekend, they will learn their opponents in the cup's fifth round in the draw on Monday night. The ties will be played on the weekend of March 14, with one game shown live by BBC Sport and another streamed on the RFL's Our League app.
