Workington Town boss Chris Thorman said his side's approach to their huge clash with Cumbrian promotion rivals Barrow Raiders will be "no different" to any other game.

Town travel to Craven Park on Sunday afternoon (3pm ko) to play league leaders Raiders, who are one place and two points ahead of them in the League 1 table.

And despite Barrow's impressive unbeaten record, Thorman said he will prepare his squad for the game with the same mindset as always.

He said: "We go into every week thinking that we can win, so this week is no different."

However, Thorman believes his side still have improvements to make despite their dramatic 34-28 win against Rochdale Hornets last Sunday.

Thorman said: “Controlling the ball would be a good start; there are too many unforced errors.

"I think we're averaging 18 errors a game and that’s just too high.

“The fact we're sitting second in the league and have only lost one game – which was only by two points – to me says that if we can improve in that area then we will improve significantly on the field and our results will reflect that.”

Last Sunday saw Town full-back and captain Jamie Doran play his 150th match in rugby league.

And Thorman was full of praise for Doran for the achievement.

He said: “Jamie knows what I think of him.

"That’s why I appointed him captain; his attitude, he is absolutely a leader of the team, everybody listens when he talks and it’s a significant achievement playing 150 games.

“I work closely with Jamie.

"We have a great relationship now and he knows and I know that there is still a lot to come from him and over the next couple of years I am really looking forward to watching him and hopefully he will go on to play another 150 games.”
