Whitehaven's Scott McAvoy in race to make Workington Town game

Whitehaven skipper Scott McAvoy is an injury concern ahead of Sunday’s derby clash with Workington Town.

The centre twisted his knee in the first-half of the weekend win over Gateshead Thunder.

“Knees are funny things,” coach Don Gailer said. “He twisted it then got up and wanted to play on, just to see how it went.

“But it didn’t come good, which is not a good sign. The doctor wasn’t real sure, and for me that was a big concern, especially with Scott’s attitude around the place. He started the first 10 minutes really good and looked like he would give his centre plenty of trouble. To come off and be hurt like that, I just hope it’s not as bad as it first looked.”

McAvoy had been in fine form in the opening moments of the match, supplying a pass for a Craig Calvert try and then adding another himself before suffering the injury.

Gailer has been impressed with McAvoy on and off the pitch, naming him joint team captain.

The coach is now turning his attention to the Derwent Park clash, when Town are likely to be stronger than in the last meeting, with the addition of three Super League prospects from Hull KR on dual registration. “They will improve them,” he said. “But three weeks ago they were saying they were the kings of Cumbria and they had 17 then. With these three they have 20, but they can still only play 17. We will do all right.”

Have your say

as long as we beat them in the league games.... when it realy matters that will do for me.

Are Community Resolutions a good idea?

Yes, it helps to relieve pressure on the over-stretched justice system

No, it's another case of society being soft on criminals

I've never heard of the scheme
