Trio in cup fitness fight

Date published: Wednesday, March 18, 2015
OLDHAM are checking the fitness of several players ahead of Sunday’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fourth-round tie against Sheffield Eagles.

The big decision concerns Danny Langtree, who has been out for five weeks with a hamstring injury, missing each of the cup wins against Coventry and the superb 32-10 cup win at Barrow.
Michael Ward (head injury) and George Tyson (leg) will also be monitored after picking up knocks at Craven Park.
Final decisions may be left until Saturday when Scott Naylor will name his team to play the Championship high-fliers at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster, kick-off 3pm.
Fans who have still to collect season-ticket books can get them  from the refreshment trailer at Whitebank on Sunday week, March 29 before the iPro Sport Cup semi-final against North Wales Crusaders (3pm).
