Swinton hooker Scott Moore says that the club should have enough quality and determination to avoid relegation from the Betfred Championship this year. 

Following back-to-back wins over Rochdale and Batley, the Lions are now five points clear of second-bottom Barrow with seven games left to play.

They have now accrued 14 points from 20 games this campaign, more-than doubling the number of victories they picked up in the entirety of last season.

Since arriving at the Lions last month, Moore has won two of his three games, scoring once.

Ahead of his potential 250th career appearance this afternoon against promotion-chasing Bradford, Moore says that Swinton will have enough in the tank to survive what is proving to be one of the most captivating Championship seasons in many years.

“I’m confident that we will stay in the Championship, the former England international told the Lions official website. “They’re a determined group that work hard for each other and I don’t see a reason why we can’t finish mid-table, should we execute the game plans Stuart [Littler] sets us more efficiently.

“Hopefully I can bring some stability in getting us around the park and as an old head, I can help us be more patient and complete our sets.

“The Championship has gone from strength to strength over the years and yes, this is probably the best it’s been for a number of years. Anyone can beat anyone which is a good spectacle for the fans.”
