Workington Town will be out to avenge their early season defeat at the hands of Keighley when the Cougars head to Derwent Park this weekend, says skipper Oliver Wilkes.

Town lost 44-34 at Cougar Park back in February and Wilkes acknowledges that they will still be a threat to them on Sunday, ko 3pm.

But he says if Town stick to their game plan, they can overturn their visitors and collect the vital two League One points.

"Keighley lost a few players during their financial struggles but it seems they are all sorted now and they have brought in some quality players," said Wilkes.

"I am sure they will be a massive threat this week but we owe them one from when we played there earlier in the season

"We just have to play our own game how we should play it and hopefully we will get the result."

Wilkes also praised the club for snapping up Jamie Doran and Sean Penkywicz on longer contracts, to secure the immediate future of the side.

The former Super League prop said the two players were 'quality' and that Doran was a star of the fuure.

"It is good that the club are signing up players already for next season, it is a real incentive to others to follow suit," said Wilkes.

"You want to have quality players around you and players want to sign for clubs that have them on board.

"You can tell the matches when Jamie Doran hasn't played, he makes a real difference.

"He is a really vocal half back with a good running game. He is definitely coming on in leaps and bounds.

"I think he has a good future in the game if he keeps his attitude and focuses on the right areas of his game.

"And there are not many nines that I have played with in my career that can dictate a game like Sean Penkywicz, and he follows it up in defence."
