UNDERBANK Rangers will once again go into a Conference National League clash full of confidence.
After making it 11 wins out of 11 with last week’s hard-fought 28-22 triumph at Hemel Stags, the Holmfirth-based side bid to make it 12 on the trot at home to Featherstone Lions at The Cross tomorrow.
Not surprisingly, player-coach Richard Knight’s men are red-hot favourites to remain on course for an unbeaten League season, particularly after beating a Hemel side that the team chief believed would provide Underbank with their toughest test of the season so far.
But West Yorkshire rivals Featherstone will be no push-overs.
They made their intentions clear with an impressive 78-22 home victory over Warrington Wizards last time out as they bid to mount a late play-off charge.
However, with several Underbank players coming back into contention following injury or unavailability, there’s unlikely to be any let-up as Knight’s men look to claim the coveted minor championship in record time.
With competition for players expected ahead of the play-off campaign, quality individual performances right now are vitally important.
