Leigh caretaker boss Kurt Haggerty is hopeful that prop forwards Ben Flower, Nathaniel Peteru and Nathan Mason will all return for next Saturday’s home game against Catalans.
They were among a host of injury absentees which meant Haggerty was forced to put three backs on the bench during Sunday’s 30-20 defeat to Wakefield.
Haggerty, who was handed the reins in midweek following the departure of John Duffy, was delighted with the performance of his side, despite a ninth defeat from as many games.
“Considering the week we had, I’m really happy with the energy of the players and we had the potential to pinch the game at times,” he said.
“They are hurting in the changing rooms because the game was there to take but for us to go forward it was a really good start.”
Haggerty also says he will be happy to stay in charge for as long as owner Derek Beaumont wants.
“I’ll just keep taking charge of the team until I have a further conversion with Derek. There’s no rush at the moment but I’m sure at some point we will have a chat.
“It’s not something that’s really on my mind at the moment.”
