Whitehaven will almost certainly be playing their final home game of the season tomorrow when Coventry Bears visit the Recreation Ground.

Coach Carl Forster, who is due to sign-off at the end of the season, is looking for a big finish in front of home supporters.

He said: “I’m looking for a totally professional performance from the team.

“It isn’t about Coventry Bears but about the way we perform.

“I’d like to think we can follow-up last week’s win over Hunslet with a similar performance and boost our points differential in the process.

“Making sure we win, and win well, is all we can do and then see how far that’s taken us and what’s required in the last week of the regular season at York.

“We haven’t got James Tilley because of work commitments and Scott McAvoy is unlikely to play.

“Scott has done brilliant since coming out of retirement but has been nursing one or two knocks which is why he will probably sit this one out."

Lewis Brown and Connor Holliday return to the squad, however, and Kells amateur Jordan Herve will also be involved.

Whitehaven, Hunslet and Oldham appear to be contesting one or two play-off places with Doncaster and Workington Town looking likely to finish third and fourth.

Ahead of the vote at the Rugby League’s EGM, Forster said: “We are all desperate to know what we are playing for – the top five, as originally laid down, or the top six as suggested in the last few weeks.

“I just hope that Whitehaven can be involved, whichever way the play-offs work out.”

Chairman Tommy Todd has called for increased support through the turnstiles to boost the team’s efforts to come-up with a big, winning score.
