Fev a game away from league title

Featherstone will secure top spot in the Co-operative Championship this week, providing they beat Mark Aston’s Eagles.

Rovers coach Daryl Powell is hopeful that Kyle Briggs (groin strain) and Dwayne Straugheir will both be fit for Sunday’s fixture.

Tommy Saxton will also be assessed, but Iain Morrison is definitely out.

Powell said: “We’re taking each game as it comes and we’re just looking for confidence and consistency going into the play-offs.”

He added: “We’re looking for consistency at the moment and I thought our performance at Whitehaven was outstanding defensively.

“It was a commanding performance and it was just what we wanted.”

Sheffield coach Aston is hoping to spoil the party for former Eagles team-mate Powell.

Aston said: “Daryl Powell and I are great friends, but this is about winning.”

Trevor Exton is definitely out for the Eagles after undergoing knee surgery.
