Oldham RLFC 28-18 Workington Town
Blow for Workington
Workington Town face an uphill battle to finish top of Co-operative Championship 1 after going down to a 28-18 defeat at Oldham.
Town trail leaders Doncaster by four points, albeit with a game in hand, but look like they may have to now settle for a play-off place.
The Roughyeds put in a strong first-half performance as they claimed 24 points unanswered by half-time.
Miles Greenwood opened the scoring early on with additional tries from Neil Roden, Michael Ward and Lucas Onyango as Jamie Dallimore kicked over six goals for the home side.
Town hit back after the break with tries from Elliott Miller, Peter Lupton and Andy Morris with Carl Forber adding the extras.
But both teams saw a man sent off late on with Jamie Acton dismissed for the Roughyeds and Miller seeing red for Workington.
