Barrow Raiders came from behind and ran in 20 unanswered second-half points to overcome Workington Town 32-18 in the Betfred Challenge Cup Fifth Round.

In a typical derby tie, Workington Town got the upper hand to lead at the break despite Barrow scoring early, and late, in the first period.

Raiders began to turn the screw and had the game sewn up with a 73rd minute try after Jarrod Sammut and Hakim Miloudi linked to put in Tee Ritson for an acrobatic try at the corner flag.

The Raiders now face the exciting prospect of facing a Super League team in the Betfred Challenge Cup Sixth Round.

The Sixth Round draw will be held on tonight at 6.45pm, and broadcast live from Elland Road, Leeds, on BBC Look North and BBC Sport Online.
