Workington Town coach Charlton expecting huge response
Last updated at 13:03, Tuesday, 12 March 2013
Workington Town coach Gary Charlton admitted his side put in their worst performance of the season at York but expects them to bounce back.
Town went down 48-6, former Super League prop Jamie Thackray being shown the red card by Whitehaven referee Garther Hewer for dissent 12 minutes from time.
“We knew York was a small field, narrow and short, and it should have suited us,” said Charlton.
“But York had enthusiasm and determination, something that we lacked.
“Martin [joint coach Oglanby] and I have got to be responsible for the way our team play. We can make every excuse in the book but it wouldn’t be good enough after that performance.
“We really can’t explain so many poor personal performances, it’s not that the lads are lacking in ability. They have proved that in the way the played against Halifax and Sheffield, and in the victories at Swinton and against Barrow.
“There’s not many times I can say ‘Workington didn’t put the effort in’, but Sunday was one of those days.
“That being said, it’s now all about how we bounce back. I’m expecting a huge response from the players on Sunday.”
Andy Morris, who was injured in the first minute of the match against York, will undergo a scan this week. The centre has damaged ligaments in his ankle but it’s not known how severe the injury is.
Both Mark Calderwood and skipper Jarrad Stack picked up knee injuries and will be examined tonight at training.
