New Workington coach Phil Veivers will be without loose forward Karl Olstrum for the visit of Keighley Cougars to Derwent Park.
The loose forward has pleaded guilty to the Grade C offence of striking with the knee in the 75th minute of a the Championship fixture at Barrow Raiders on March 9. As well as the two-game suspension, Olstrum was fined £100.
However, Veivers is aiming to make it three wins out of three since taking charge of the Cumbrians.
Town backed up an 8-6 victory over Barrow Raiders with a 38-12 win over Normanton Knights in last week’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup clash.
But with the focus back on the Kingstone Press Championship, Veivers will be hoping for a victory that would push seventh-placed Town even higher in the league table.
Cougars coach Paul March is also missing as he continues to serve a four-match suspension.
But March was left pleased with his side’s 42-0 win over Wath Brown Hornets last week.
March said: “It was a very professional display. We scored some good tries and kept them scoreless, which I’m delighted with. We defended very strongly at times.”
