Halifax hoping to complete an 80-minute performance

Halifax will travel to Knaresborough in Yorkshire Four determined to put their second-half slump against Harrogate behind them.

Halifax had been leading the promotion-chasing Pythons 17-7 and looked well set for victory only for Harrogate to hit back to snatch victory.

Knaresborough, though, provide a totally different proposition – with the North Yorkshire side adrift at the bottom of the standings.

Mark Walton has opted against making wholesale changes to the line-up, although experienced prop Dean Cotton definitely missing.

Talented academy product Sam O’Donoghue is pushing hard for a start.
