Woods said: “Last week our enthusiasm was really good, but in the end Crusaders were just too big and too strong for us.
“I’ve got videos of Rochdale and I’ve had a look at those already. They’re going OK, but we’re at home and the boys are buzzing a bit, so I’m expecting a big game from us.”
Jack Lee could make his Knights debut after joining on a short-term loan deal from Featherstone. “He’ll be really handy for us,” said Woods. “He was a great kid when I was at Castleford, so it’s great to link back up with him.”
Rochdale coach John Stankevitch said: “I’ve watched York a couple of times on video and we played them in pre-season. The biggest player for them is Chris Thorman – if you can limit what he does with the ball and make him work in defence, then you’ve got a chance.”
