CH preview: Sheffield v Leigh (Fri)

Scott Turner, Peter Green, Matt Garside and James Davey could all come into Mark Aston’s Sheffield side as the Eagles gun for revenge after last month’s Northern Rail Cup final defeat.

The quartet were all rested for last week’s 42-16 win at York City Knights, but coach Aston could recall all four as he aims to maintain Sheffield’s position at the top of the Kingstone Press Championship.

Aston said: “We’ve got a bit of hunger to turn the negative of a loss in a final into a positive, which is another win at home.”

Leigh coach Paul Rowley is refusing to get carried away, despite his side’s recent climb into third place.

Rowley said: “We’ve had some good wins, but we’re just taking it one game at a time.

“We’re not going to make any rash statements. There are still teams ahead of us and they have to be favourites for the silverware.”
