Centurions are waiting for news on whether their dual-contracted players will join them for this week’s mouth-watering Co-operative Championship clash with Halifax.
Matty Blythe is expected to feature, despite picking up a minor knock last week, but Robbie Paul will not play after being ruled out for up to eight weeks with a groin injury.
Leigh assistant coach Paul Rowley said: “Last Sunday at Whitehaven we had our third game in a week. It was a tough time and it required tough people. We ground out a win.
“We dropped off in a couple of arrears but grit, determination and team spirit pulled us through.”
He added: “This encounter with Halifax should be an exciting game. If you look at the form then people might say we’ve been a little bit off and it’s the same with them – they leaked 30 odd points at Keighley.
“It’s two teams with good attacking records so it should be entertaining, very open and a lot faster than last week.”
Fax coach Matt Calland is demanding a big improvement from last week’s victory at Keighley. He said: “We lacked urgency and enthusiasm. We need a major step up against Leigh.”
