FOLLOWING an important learning curve, Workington Town will look to readjust against Keighley Cougars on Sunday.

Town head coach Chris Thorman knew his side were in for a tougher test than previous before facing Doncaster at the weekend but he was disappointed in errors made which he feels invited the visitors to attack their try line.

He hopes the squad will bounce back from the 24-26 defeat when they face Keighley back at Derwent Park on Sunday.

“The most important thing is that we learn from it. We’ve reviewed it, we’ve assessed where we need to improve and sometimes from a coaching point of view it’s just, complete your sets and hold the ball," said Thorman.

“I know that when we give ourselves an even share of possession we’ll beat just about any team in the competition.”

Thorman pointed out before the Doncaster game that a loss would not be the end of the world. And Workington will carry that attitude into their clash with Keighley.

“We’ve moved on. I’ve learned not to dwell on defeats because the good thing about our sport is the next weekend you’ve got another challenge.

"And we do in Keighley, so we’ve got to rise to that, we’ve got to improve and we’ve got to bring it to them on Sunday.”

Thorman called Keighley “a team to be respected” after making recent changes. He added that they play expansively and come on the back of a good win against Hunslet.

The next game to take place at Derwent Park will invite away supporters for the first time since before the pandemic. The Doncaster game saw Workington’s home supporters return for the first time.

Thorman said: “We’ve got such a great passionate bunch, great numbers too and a good voice. Even when we got right back into the game, I think everyone will say they had an entertaining afternoon back at Derwent Park.”
