“I think this is a vital game for us, and will be a good test of our resolve,” he said.
“We’ve done really well away from home in recent times, and we’ve had a great couple of weeks at Langtree Park.

“Daryl Powell’s a great coach and a good friend of mine.
“We’ve been friends for a long time, we used to play together. It’ll be good to get across for a chat with Daryl and I’m sure the players will enjoy playing on that surface.”
