NRC Preview: Barrow v Keighley

Paul Noone and Chris Young return for Barrow but Liam Campbell (hamstring) is definitely out.

Richard Fletcher will be assessed on Wednesday after picking up a shoulder complaint but coach Steve McCormack is hopeful he will be able to take part in a game Barrow must win to ensure their progress into the Northern Rail Cup quarter-finals.

McCormack said: “We certainly won’t be taking Keighley lightly. This is a very important game for us.

“Barring their result at Widnes, Keighley have gone really well. They’ll be disappointed to have lost against Toulouse at the weekend but we know what to expect. They’re a big side and they’re very well organised.”

Cougars prop Brendon Rawlins is not expected to play after suffering an arm injury during Keighley’s Carnegie Challenge Cup defeat against Toulouse.

Eaton said: “We’re just not playing enough with our heads and we’re going to have to learn that lesson quickly. Teams at this level don’t need second invites.”
