Saints lost to Salford City Reds last night, meaning that the Rhinos can close the gap to just two points with a win.
Leeds have won their last three games in the engage Super League, and beat Hull 46-16 at Headingley Carnegie Stadium in May.
\”We\’ve picked up some wins and we just want that to carry on,\” said coach Brian McClennan.
\”It hasn\’t increased our confidence because we were already very confident in our ability and we just have to keep moving forward.\”
Hull have lost 10 of their last 13 games and coach Richard Agar is expecting a tough test against the in-form champions, saying, \”If they breach your defensive line they tend to convert it into six points.
\”It\’s not just the fact they have an excellent goalkicker, but so much speed and the support play is so good. That provides a massive challenge for our defence.\”
