A complete performance left Workington Town head coach Chris Thorman happy with his team's work as they knocked fellow League 1 side Doncaster out of the Challenge Cup.

Town had to come from behind after a first half in which the scoreline did not reflect the home side's control but they ran away with the clash in the second half, with substitution Blain Marwood helping them capitalise on the large spells of possession and territory they enjoyed.

"All in all I was pretty pleased with it," Thorman said. "Effort and attitude was something I questioned and challenged them on from last week.

"When it comes to gameplan and structure and understanding their role, that's kind of my job, but it's their job to get up for the game, show good attitude, have good intent and show willingness to work hard for your team-mates. Right across the board we got a lot of ticked boxes there.

"They've got some good half-backs, some strong ball-carriers particularly on that left edge of theirs with Jason Tali and Rangi Chase. For the most part we kept them quiet."

Thorman highlighted his players' higher fitness levels and the diligent way they executed the gameplan and felt they played effectively on a muddy pitch.

He added: "Throughout the whole second half I thought we had more energy and looked fitter.

"That's probably just because of how we turned the ball over and we had an attitude to kick long, chase hard and do the basics consistently and eventually you get your rewards and we got ours.

"We scored off three kicks and at this stage of the season in these weather conditions, in the mud, you're going to score more tries off kicks than anything else right now."

Town will learn their fifth-round opposition in tonight's draw, which will take place at 6.30pm.
