Vital Workington Town clash with Doncaster to be live on TV

The potential Championship One title decider between Doncaster and Workington Town next month is being screened live.

The clash at the Keepmoat, scheduled for Sunday, July 22 is being moved back to Thursday, July 26 so that it can be fitted in to the regular weekly coverage of Championship action.

The semi-professional level of the sport, previously televised by Sky, has switched over to the Irish-based sports channel Premier.

Town’s outstanding 45-18 win over Doncaster at Derwent Park a fortnight ago has whetted the appetite of the show’s producers so the return has instant appeal for the TV market.

A nerve-jangling 37-24 win at Rochdale yesterday pushed Town to within a point of Doncaster, with a game in hand, although Barrow still lead the way – and will have something to say about the fate of the title themselves.

But Town joint-coach Gary Charlton is not counting any chickens – not even that his side are certainties for the top four, and promotion.

“It might be an old sporting cliché but we are taking our games one at a time,” he said.

“The match with Rochdale showed what can happen. We have to play for 80 minutes but we didn’t and that allowed the Hornets back into the game.

“We are capable of beating anyone on our day and for half-an-hour we were excellent. But whether it was because we thought the game was won, we lost our way and a series of penalties didn’t help.

“Rochdale were out of it but came back to level. That was frustrating but it was pleasing how well we rallied in the last 10 minutes and came back strongly to win the game.

“Thankfully, there’s no break and we are back in action on Sunday but we won’t be taking anything for granted. London Skolars are an improved side and can pose problems on their own pitch,” said Charlton.

Not started. I always join the Christmas eve rush.

Ages ago. I like to be organised.

Don't know. I leave it all to the wife.
