HEAD Coach Rhys Lovegrove has today named his 21-man squad for Sunday’s Betfred League 1 play-off semi-final against Workington Town.

Following last week’s qualifier victory away at the North Wales Crusaders, Lovegrove has made two changes to his squad.

Phoenix Laulu-Togaga’e, who was feared to be ruled out for the remainder of the season last week, has been cleared to play following a check-up giving him the all clear at parent club Hull Kingston Rovers.

There is also a return to Aaron Levy who missed the trip to Colwyn Bay last time out through the suspension given to him after our win away at Doncaster a fortnight ago.

Dan Parker has also been cleared to play after being withdrawn on the morning of last week’s game through illness.

Jack Arnold misses out because of the one-game suspension given to him for Grade B Dangerous Contact following the incident that saw him sin-binned in North Wales whilst Kieran Moran drops out of the side from last weekend’s win.

Robert Matamosi (Work Commitments), Wellington Albert (Ankle), and Bobby Darbyshire (Concussion) continue to be long term absentees for the Cougars.
