Head Coach Lee Greenwood has given his thoughts ahead of tomorrow’s Betfred Championship clash against Featherstone Rovers.

Reflecting on our defeat against London last time out, Greenwood said, “We had a horrendous start which meant we need to do some recovering to get us back in the game and I had to make some changes early on. I thought after these changes we were very unlucky not score a couple of times before the break.”

“At half-time I had a good chat with the lads and after that I thought we were dominant. We got the three tries but unfortunately didn’t convert them which meant we never got to within a score. Towards the end they made the quick break which led to one of our players being sin-binned and with no subs left we were down to eleven and conceded two late tries which flattered them.”

“It was a difficult result to take for us all, especially the fans that were there who gave their all and cheered the lads on all throughout the game. I mentioned before the game that London have got some good players in their side, but if we’d had started well then I think we’d have won.”

On tomorrow’s opposition, Greenwood said, “Everybody understands they’re having their own shoot out with Leigh to see who reaches the Super League. We fought hard against Leigh when we played them, but I thought overall we gave a good account of ourselves there. Featherstone as a side will be no different, plenty of Super League experience but our players want to make it difficult for them, we’re certainly not going to roll over. I sometimes look forward to these types of games, the players can really test themselves, give it a good go and see what happens”

Greenwood also spoke of two new additions to the squad since our last game, “Aidan McGowan’s a very good player, he’s certainly highly rated at Huddersfield and he’s played well at York last season. I think he’ll do well for us, he knows the position very well and he’s already showed some nice touches in training. Samy’s also come in and we’re know that he’ll do a good job, certainly for the next couple of games, in a position that we’ve been lacking in for a while.”

On the squad selected for tomorrow, Greenwood said “There were some slight knocks that we picked up against London, but it shouldn’t be enough to keep anyone out. The good news is that both Ross Peltier and Davey Dixon are both in contention. Kyle Trout can’t play against his parent club, but we’re hoping to try and keep him for a bit longer. We’re hoping that Calum Turner (Ankle), Ben Blackmore (Shoulder) and Matty Beharrell (Face) could all be back in the team within the next month or so.”
