UNBEATEN Underbank are already setting their sights on finishing their regular Conference National League campaign in the perfect shape.
The expected 13th win of the rugby league season at home to bottom club Bramley Buffaloes tomorrow (2.30) would take them a step closer to being crowned as minor champions.
But the main Rangers aim is obviously securing success in the Grand Final at the third attempt.
And with key men Nick Briggs, Sam Hendricks and Andy Boothroyd expected to return from injury over the next few weeks, player-coach Richard Knight feels his side could peak at just the right time.
“After a couple of close calls when we’ve been struggling for bodies, it looks like we’re getting things back together,” he said.
“Tomorrow, we’ll be able to field our strongest side for quite some time, and in the next couple of weeks we’ll be getting some more key players back.
“But as well as having a good, strong squad, our last few wins have shown we’ve got no shortage of belief, desire and character, and that could prove just as important.
“We’re looking for a good all-round performance against Bramley to make sure we stay right on track.
“I know the players are looking forward to it.”
With the game getting under way at 2.30, the club will be showing the Warrington v Wigan Challenge Cup quarter-final tie straight after in the clubhouse at 4.30.”
