“They’re looking like a solid side now and one that can really challenge.
“When you take into account their recent performances and some of the players they’ve now got in pivotal positions, they’ll probably be feeling pretty confident.”
Eaton added: “We’ve had some challenges on our away trips this year, but the pleasing aspect has been how we’ve dealt with them.”
Gene said: “The boys are playing with a lot of confidence now and defensively we’re getting there.”
