KEIGHLEY Cougars fell to defeat again on the road, this time losing 52-4 in Cumbria at the hands of a resurgent Workington Town.

Their loss was all but confirmed by half-time after Workington came out firing in an error strewn League One game.

And it leaves them just one point above bottom spot after West Wales finally broke their duck with their first victory of the season in beating Coventry.

Hosts Workington opened the scoring when Declan O’Donnell rounded to score, taking advantage of a missed tackle from Matthew Bailey.

Town then found themselves over again when Jonathan Walsh touched down a grubber from Jamie Doran on the back of a break from O’Donnell.

After Will Cooke won a penalty, the Cougars managed to briefly get themselves back in the game as Jason Muranka turned his way through a tackle to squeeze over.

It would prove to be only brief rest bite for Rhys Lovegrove’s side as Carl Forber took the two on offer after being on the receiving end of a high tackle.

The veteran Fuifui Moimoi was next to score for Workington, powering through four defenders to crash over to the left of the uprights.

The game was then killed off, when Scott Rooke took advantage of the numbers on the overlap to send Perry Singleton over unchallenged in the corner to put the hosts 24-4 up.

The second half saw more of the same, Workington scoring early on as Forber touched down his own grubber on the back of a superb kick chase to force the dropout.

Town then scored once again, this time Tom Curwen twisting and turning through several missed tackles before rolling over a Keighley defender to get himself over the line.

It was a bad day at the office, and after both Taylor Prell and Chris Cullimore were denied for Cougars, it got worse as Gordon Maudling made a barnstorming run over the whitewash after a missed tackle left the line gaping.

Town found time for another try, Sam Hewitt strolling over unchallenged shortly before he was sin-binned for a trip on Jack Miller.

However, Workington found time to score once more as Scott Rooke won the foot race against Alfie Seeley to touch down on the sound of the hooter.
