Whitehaven Rugby League Club's hopes of reaching the Super League are still alive - but only just.

They travel to Bradford on Sunday with an outside chance of reaching the play-offs.

But matters are not in their own hands.

Haven are currently in seventh place with London Broncos ahead of them in sixth.

The West Cumbrian side need London to lose or draw against York City Knights to finish in sixth place.

If London draw then Haven must win, and if the Broncos win then Whitehaven can still finish above them if they draw.

Jonty Gorley, Assistant Coach at Whitehaven, said: "It’ going to be a tough ask.

"We’ve got to beat Bradford. Itself, that’s a tough task.

"We’ve got to hope that York beat London in York. I think that could happen.

"We’re on a decent run of form so there shouldn’t be any problems with our confidence.

"We’ve got to go in with the right frame of mind and get our skillsets right."

The match could also be Head Coach Gary Charlton's last, with him leaving the team at the end of the season.

Jonty Chorley will take the reigns.

He said: "I’ll miss working with Gary and a few of the lads that are leaving.

"But it’s a new chapter next year. It’s a challenge for myself.

"We need to get this season out of the way first before we start thinking about that."

He added: "When you have a chance of the playoffs, there’s still that bit of hunger there to try and make that and have another game.

"The higher up the league and the play offs that you finish, the more money you make too.

"That’s a goal as well to try and finish as high as you can to give the club more funding."
