Workington Town coach Leon Pryce says they have to play smarter in Sunday’s clash at Doncaster if they want to keen their unbeaten run going.

Pryce says he wants to see a continuous improvement from his charges as they go into their third match of the new League 1 season.

He says this weekend will be one of their toughest games but he is hoping that last season’s win their in the play-offs can motivate the team.

“We proved last season that we can go there and beat them,” said Pryce.

“They started this season with a fantastic win over Newcastle so we know this is going to be a tough game.

“But I just want to see another improvement from us this week, and if we can keep improving I will be happy.

“I don’t think we will have any different structures in place but we have to play smartly. If we play with the dumbness that we played with against North Wales, it could be a tough afternoon.”

Town won the game at home against North Wales by 30 points on Sunday to move to the top of the league ladder but Pryce was keen to put a halt to the errors that let their visitors back into the game for periods.

“We need to smarten up on our ball control,” he added. “There were a few one-on-one missed tackles that cost us tries but our ball control was sloppy.

“We made some silly passes with the ball going to ground too often but overall we are gong in the right direction and everybody is training really hard. Nobody is playing their best rugby at this point in the season but as long as are gradually improving then we are okay.”

Pryce will make a decision on his team later in the week, including the possibility of using players on dual registration. And he says team selection is key against their rivals.

He said: “My full focus will be on picking the best team available to win this game. But everybody is fit and going great guns. We know Doncaster are a good team and it will be similar to the opening game at Oldham where we have to deliver a strong performance.”
