Kingstone Press Championship Preview: Featherstone Rovers v Halifax

Featherstone Rovers coach Andy Hay insists the “pressure is off” after his side secured a second-placed finish in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Hay said: “There’s been a lot of pressure on us over the last five or six weeks, and now that’s out of the way we can hopefully start playing again.

“We’ve two chances in the play-offs, but we don’t want to take them. We’ll try to get this game out of the way and hopefully get a week’s rest.”

Jamie Cording is closing in on a return, but Sunday’s match may come too early.

Hay added: “We’re down to the barebones and we need to get the best out of the players we’ve got.

“Now the pressure’s off again, we can look forward to playing some football.”

Halifax player-coach Scott Murrell is aiming for a second win, and could be boosted by the return of Ross Divorty.

Murrell said: “We need to get a strong mentality when we’re defending, and complete our sets at the other end. If we sort those things out, I’m sure we’ll be all right.”
