Possible formation?
1 Brett Carter
2 Elliot Miller
24 Kayle Connor
Danny Craven
5 Mark Calderwood
13 Peter Lupton
21 Callum Phillips
8 Ewan Dowes
9 Graeme Mattinson
17 Marc Shackley
22 Jordan Walne
12 Jarrad Stack
16 Karl Olstrum

10 Jamie Thackray
19 James Robinson
4 Andy Morris
7 Carl Forber

Craven's a half back so I'd expect either Morris or Patrick (if fit) play centre with Craven playing 7 and Callum on the bench to spell Matty off at hooker.

Craven confirmed he is travelling to Keighley on his own to play for Town. He is 21 and a product of the Widnes Academy. He is an able kicker.

Makes sense your formation although he is more of a stand off than a scrum half. A bit dangerous changing the half back partnership yet again though.

I think Calderwood becomes a member of the exclusive 300 appearances club when he turns out for Town tomorrow. Many congratulations!

if morris plays centre it will probably mean we have callum,thacks,cotter and olstrum on the bench. presuming they start with craven and forber with lupton at loose. the bench looks extremely small and the like of shacks and thacks will probably have to do long spells. its baffled me why weve gone for a half back instead of a forward, and im assuming craven has never trained with the lads?

It will be interesting to see what type of team Keighley put out against us, they have quite a number of options. Obviously Elliot Cosgrove will be in the team, he was on loan to Keighley earlier in the season and really impressed the fans. Young Ben Stead made a super debut for the first team against Leigh despite the defeat but perhaps he needs to miss this match after only four days rest. The fans also rate two other newcomers, Joe Parkinson and James Haley. Whatever the formation, this match is extremely important for both teams and I am sure will be great television entertainment ( if not necessarily for the fans of both sides) for the neutral viewers.
Overall, I hope it is yet another great advert for the Championship League, but my main wish is simply another win for Town.

Just a point of clarify - Adam Lawton was initially made available by Widnes for Thursdays match at Keighley and was all set to be included in the Town squad.
However, Widnes then called him back late yesterday, in to their squad due to their own injuries.....
Danny Craven is included in Thursdays squad.

Thanks for the clarification Casablanca, everything now makes more sense. Without the option of having Coward, Mossop and Lawton in the team, we still have a squad that under the excellent guidance of our coaches will ensure a win against Keighley tomorrow night. Good skill to the Town!

casablanca, you need to delete some messages from your PM inbox.


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Craven is easily quick enough and good enough defensivley to play in the centres. Possibly switch Morris into the pack ?? but I would certainly play Lupton at 6 and then give him a partner.

If either of our centres carrying a knock has to come off we could be in trouble, it's not like that's happened before!
