Saints out to avoid three straight defeats

St Helens back-rower Chris Flannery is hoping to help his side bounce back from their defeats against Wigan and Warrington this weekend.

Flannery, 31, is now back to full fitness after a number of injury problems this season, and is targeting victory against Hull tonight.

He told the club’s official website: “The last two defeats have been disappointing. We were poor against Wigan and we wanted to bounceback against Warrington. We did that in a way although we didn’t get the win. We can take a lot of positives from it as they are a tough side and in form. We came back from 18 points down and got in front, but lapses in concentration cost us the game.

“We showed that against Wigan – we were in it for 20 minutes and then clocked off and we were 20 points down. Against Warrington we had five off and they put points on us. We have to look at that.

“With the team and coach we have here no one is talking about a transitional period. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to perform and defeats aren’t acceptable and we now have to bounceback against Hull.

“I can’t remember when we last faced three losses in a row and that makes this match huge. But if we take the intensity we showed in the game at Warrington into this match and we’ll do some big things in both competitions.”
