Underbank Rangers are confident of spoiling the Featherstone Lions party and proving they deserve to secure promotion from Division III of the National Conference League.
Their hosts will be handed the League Leaders Shield tomorrow night after going through the season unbeaten so far.
As a result, a big crowd is guaranteed for what is expected to be a top-quality encounter between two of the leading sides in the competition.
And with Underbank knowing that if they inflict a first defeat of the season on the Lions and then Blackbrook lose at Eastmoor Dragons on Saturday, then a home win for Rangers over bottom club Peterlee on the same day will take the Holmfirth club up.
“Matches don’t come much bigger or more important for us than this,” said an excited Knight.
“We go there knowing if we win we could still gain automatic promotion. But even if Blackbrook do deny us on the final day of the regular season, a win against Featherstone would still give us a massive boost going into the play-offs, which gives us a second way of a going up.
“And we’re confident we can win and play the role of party poopers.
“Although they beat us 30-22 at our place earlier in the season, we felt it was down to us not playing well rather than them being better than us. It’s something we haven’t forgotten.
“This is our chance to prove a point and show the rest of the League we deserve to be promoted.
“Apart from Dan Farrand (broken wrist) everybody is available, which wasn’t the case against them earlier in the season when injuries meant we were forced to field a makeshift side.
“So we know if everyone plays to their potential, there’s no reason at all why the result won’t go our way.”
