Featherstone Rovers chairman Mark Campbell is very pleased with the way that Jon Sharp’s side have started the 2017 campaign.
Rovers have beaten Halifax and Oldham in the opening two games of the Championship season
“Getting two points against Oldham, in trying conditions, was a great achievement for us over the weekend, we have started the season well,” he said.
“Going to Batley will be extremely difficult. Again, the conditions will be tough and it is a hard place to go and win at. They are coming off the back of a big win over Halifax.
“We will probably have a few extra bodies back in contention this weekend, though, which will provide a big boost for Jon (Sharp) and his team.
“We have got two great wins under our belt and another one at Batley would keep us very much on track in terms of where we want to be on the league table come May and June.
“Everything is progressing positively at the club in general, I really feel the business is gaining momentum and pulling in the right direction. It is well placed as things stand and the staff here and working brilliantly to keep moving the club forward.
“There is a lot to be excited about and it is great to see the level of support the players are getting. We need to take that to Batley now and kick on.”
