Chris Thorman takes charge of his first game at Derwent Park as Workington Town welcome Hunslet this afternoon.

Last time the two sides met a 14-man Workington took the honours in the 1895 Cup but Thorman warned during the week that he expects this to be a different game.

Ryan Fieldhouse has retained his place at full-back but Carl Forber has returned in the half-back role alongside Jamie Doran.

Tyler Lancaster, who has just signed a deal with the club is in centre alongside Caine Barnes with on-trial Russell Bolton in the starting line-up on the wing.

Town: Fieldhouse, Walsh, Barnes, Lancaster, Bolton, Doran, Forber, Moimoi, Penkywicz, Hopkins, Maudling, Scholey, Tickle. Subs: Dawson, Curwen, Rooke, O'Donell.

Hunslet: Watson, Potts, Chappell, Heaton, Bloomfield, Sanderson, Nicklas, Robinson, Lee, Kirby, Tonks, Straugheir, Emmett. Subs: Halafihi, Braham, Dixon, Martin.
