Duffy wants repeat performance

Swinton boss John Duffy is eager for his team to build some momentum after recording an important victory last weekend.

The Lions’ 13-12 win against Halifax left them a point behind eighth-placed Rochdale and Duffy wants more of the same when his side visit Sheffield on Sunday.

“The lads were magnificent especially off the back of the midweek game at Featherstone which was really tough for us,” said Duffy.

“We looked really fit and we stuck to our game plan for big parts of the game and got a great win.

“Every win is important for us at the minute because of our league standing. It was massive for us and the boys gained some confidence from that game because Halifax are a really good team and obviously looking for that top four spot.”

“Sheffield have been our bogey team this year and there is no revenge tactics, it’s just that we have to change the way we play against them because what we’ve done in the past hasn’t worked.

“The way they have been playing I think they will try to get back on the horse and get a win against us.

“Every game is a must-win now – we play the teams around us in the next few weeks and with no disrespect to them hopefully we can pick up some points and try and go into these last seven games with some confidence.”
