Workington Town out to break London Skolars home record
Last updated at 09:55, Saturday, 09 June 2012
Andy McClean and Austen Aggrey are both set to feature on Sunday as London Skolars look to defend their unbeaten home record this term against Workington Town.
Skolars coach Joe Mbu said: “Hopefully we can just carry on, although Workington will look to break that record.
“It’ll be tough, but we’ll just keep working hard and hope we can keep winning at home.
“One of the terms we use is ‘your home is your castle’. We defend it like it’s everything we’ve got. We want to make it as difficult as we can for anyone coming here. We don’t want anybody to have an easy time against us.
“Every game is tough at this point in the season, and Workington have been getting stronger and stronger since the start of the season.”
Skolars lost 27-20 when they travelled to Derwent Park in April, but Mbu believes that result has helped his side make even more progress.
He said: “We were unfortunate to miss out that day, and we’ve learned a lot from that game. We’ve learned from those tight games about the decisions we need to make and exercising patience.”
Darren King and Jonathan Dawes are missing for Town ahead of their longest road trip of the season.
Coach Gary Charlton said: “We’ve had a couple of ups and downs over the season so far, but we are where we want to be.
“There’s still a long way to go, but I think we’ve got the personnel to take us into one of those promotion places come the end of the season.”
