Workington defeat opens things up

​WORKINGTON Town’s surprise 50-22 defeat at Newcastle has again opened things up in the jostle for play-off places in Betfred League 1.

York City Knights or Bradford Bulls will fill one play-off spot, leaving three to be contested by Doncaster, Workington, Oldham, Hunslet and Whitehaven.

Only four points separate the five with Doncaster on 32 points, Workington on 32, Oldham on 30, Hunslet on 30 and Whitehaven on 28.

Workington now have only two games left, while the others have three.

Roughyeds have the toughest run-in of them all, playing leaders York away tomorrow; second-placed Bradford Bulls at the Vestacare Stadium next Sunday (Sep 16); and London Skolars away on Saturday, September 22.

You can watch the York v Oldham game by signing up FREE for OurLeague (see the Roughyeds website) and you can buy tickets for the Bradford game from the Roughyeds office at the Vestacare between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday next week.

Key games tomorrow in the battle for play-off spots are York v OLDHAM; Keighley Cougars v Doncaster; and Whitehaven v Hunslet.

The Oldham-Bradford game next Sunday (3pm) is NOT all-ticket (turnstiles open at 1pm) but by buying tickets in advance fans will ease congestion around the turnstiles and make entry into the ground far more comfortable.

Entry to the social club will be from inside the ground.
